Intro/Beginners Silver Jewellery with Metal Clay - Part 1: Textured Pendent or Earrings
Contact course provider
About the Course
Making silver jewellery doesn’t have to be difficult… if you can roll out pastry, use a biscuit cutter or a craft knife you can use metal clay!
* Easy * Social * Fun * Eco-friendly *
In this class you’ll have a basic introduction to the material, tools and processes, followed by some time to practice and finalise your design before getting started on “the real thing”. You will then create your piece and it will be fired in a kiln - turning it from a dull grey piece into PURE SILVER!
Don’t worry if you’re “not creative”, I’m here to support you and guide you through the process - I also have books and samples for inspiration too.
Go on, treat yourself (or a loved one) to a unique keepsake made from .999 pure fine silver for less than the cost of a piece of jewellery on the High Street!
* THIS CLASS WILL ALSO BE AVAILABLE IN KINGSBRIDGE on 29th JULY* Message me or visit my website for details for details!

Your tutor is Steph Pillinger, BA (Hons) Restoration and Decorative Studies - First Class, an internationally selling mixed-media artist, specialising in metal clay, gilding and decorative effects.
This is an exciting method in the history of jewellery making - I call it the “friendly” alternative to traditional silversmithing. Many other skills cross over to metal clay projects (pottery, sugar craft, decoupage etc.) - making it accessible to hobbyists and craftspeople alike… so go on, give it a go!
A range of classes are available, both at my studio in Brixham and a number of venues across South Devon - take a look at my website or follow me on social media for more details!
