Join experienced jeweller/goldsmith Lindsay Forbes, jeweller and founder of Laconic jewellery, as she guides you this introduction course working with wire and silver. Learn some wire-work basics, creating loops and curved forms, which we will then texture using silversmithing techniques to transform shapes into your own unique pieces of jewellery.
You will learn how to make both pieces using copper or silver plated wire first to practise the technique and see how your design will look before choosing which you will make in silver!
