Make a silver domed pendant and earring set at The JQ Set | Birmingham

Jewellery benches in the jewellery making studio at The JQ Set | Birmingham


Learn how to make your own pendant and earring jewellery set in our bright and shiny jewellery making workshop in Birmingham. This course takes place over six consecutive Tuesday evenings from 6.00pm-8.30pm, starting from the date shown. To get the most from this course, you should be available for every class.

You will learn to make a domed silver pendant and earrings with your own unique textured pattern in the metal. A wonderful and personalised set of jewellery for you to wear home at the end of the course or to give away as a gift.

This Improver Level 1 jewellery making course is suitable for students who have already completed our Beginners course (for more information, please get in touch). Adding to the skills that you have already learnt as a beginner, on this course you will start by experimenting with metal texturing techniques.

Once you’ve chosen your favourite pattern, you will learn doming, sweat-soldering, and how to make a handmade catch to finish off your pendant and earring set. The tutor will make the silver jewellery set alongside you and use their pieces to demonstrate each step. You will be provided with a printed handout in case you need a little reminder along the way, and to refer back to if you’d like to make another set!

Each class takes you through the next stage of the process, so please make sure you can attend all the dates.

This improvers course adds really important techniques to your skill-set, like sweat-soldering – a process used for joining small pieces of metal to large pieces, like earring posts on ear studs. It’s tricky at first, but as a jewellery maker you will use it almost every time you’re at the bench.

Cancellation and a full refund can be obtained up to 4 weeks before the course starts. Start dates may be amended on request.

What's included in the price?
