Similar to the half day workshop, this full day workshop will allow you to learn how to cut a silver/copper pendant from your own design with a jeweller’s saw, finish and de-burr your pendant, create texture using stamps, learn simple soldering and create your final pendant or earrings from a choice of findings.
No previous experience required. The workshop will run from 10.00 until 16.30 with a short break for refreshments.
If you would like to create your own more complex shape or would like to learn how to solder, please check out our other workshops.

We had a really fun and rewarding day, my wife and I (first man on the course!). Hawys was lovely and took us through what we could do and also kept our expectations in check as we were both beginners. We both managed to get finished pieces out by the end of the day that we were very happy with.
Across the course, we did cutting and stamping of both metals, learning about what happens when you work with the materials and the processes that finish them off into wearable pieces of jewellery. We also managed to do soldering, joining both the silver and copper metals together to create the completed items of jewellery. The excellent tuition and patience, taking us through the process and with Hawys' skills in simplifying the design process and making the items achievable for us to make was superb.
If you are looking for a different way to spend a day together and might enjoy making something for your wife as well (good brownie points !) then give it a go. Thanks, Hawys for a great day!!!
