Suitable for beginners this one day course will introduce you to the wonderful world of jewellery making with Silver Metal Clay. You'll make several pieces during the day which will be yours to take home with you. We will start with flat textured charms/earrings and move onto multi layered stone set pendants. You'll learn how to attach your findings (ear wires and O rings etc) as well as make molds from found textures and objects.
