About the Course
On this one day course, you will be guided through how to make at least 3 beautiful pieces of pure silver jewellery with 20g of silver clay. Georgina has been working with silver clay for over ten years and has been running silver clay courses on the Wirral for the last eight years.
You will be given the opportunity to design and make your own pieces under careful supervision. This means these bespoke pieces are unique to wear yourself or give to loved ones as a very special handmade gift. Silver Clay lends itself to make jewellery inspired by nature. Leaves, feathers, seed pods and shells can all be used to make beautiful pieces. Fingerprint and footprint jewellery can also be made with the fingerprint or footprints of your loved ones, taken in advance of the course.
Minimum of two but maximum of 4 people on course ensuring you get all the tuition you need to make some truly beautiful unique pieces.
Upcoming courses will take place at Blue Moon Gallery: (Dee Fine Arts, Heswall, Wirral, Merseyside.)

What's included in the price?
All materials including 20g of Silver Clay is included. There will be lots of materials with which to make your pieces, sprigs, leaves and flowers form my garden; feathers, leaf skeletons, textured sheets, moulds from seasonal flowers and letter stamps, shells etc... but please bring your own too. Buttons and bits of old jewellery can be given a whole new lease of life when made in silver.
We will keep your energy up with tea, coffee and cake. There will be an hour off for lunch, gallery is situated in a thriving town so there are plenty of places to get something to eat, but feel free to bring a packed lunch if you like.
There is lots of parking near by, it is pay and display but a day ticket is less than £5.
Throughly enjoyed my morning, Georgina was excellent, very good at instructing us but also helping out when needed. I was very pleased with the earrings and pendant I made.

Really enjoyed the taster course. George talked a little about herself and then explained what we were going to do clearly and in a calm and friendly manner creating a relaxing and supportive atmosphere. Then there were lots of cutters, moulds and textures to explore ! George patiently offered help and advice throughout. I made some lovely pieces of jewellery and learnt a new skill - all at a very reasonable cost. I would absolutely recommend this course.

Response from Perfectcharm:Thank you Tina. Would be lovely to have you back on a one day Course where you can explore working with silver clay a bit further.
A lovely morning spent making a Silver Clay pendant. Thoroughly enjoyed the taster session and hope to do the full day course soon.

Response from Perfectcharm:Thank you Hilary. It would be lovely to have you attend a full day course sometime and you can explore some more techniques. Glad you enjoyed the Taster Session
I spent the day with two lovely ladies and Georgina. I have done metal clay before but have not quite grasped it enough to practice at home. I was so inspired that I immediately dug out my stuff at home. The venue is easy to find and park nearby. I highly recommend it as Georgina explains in a methodical way and demonstrated in such a practical way. My friends have been so impressed by the results they have put their orders in

Response from Perfectcharm:Thank you for your review. I am glad you found the course useful. Look out for some specialised course next year if you would like to learn some more techniques.
I had a fabulous day yesterday within Georgina - I have taken away loads of tips and advice along with some absolutely beautiful 'hand made by me' items.
Highly recommended. And I've even ordered a kiln today to make more jewellery at home!!

Response from Perfectcharm:So glad you enjoyed the course!Exciting that you have bought a kiln. Hope you make some amazing pieces. Look out for some specialist classes next year if you would like to try some new techniques.
A most enjoyable day. I came home with 4 very attractive items, even though I had no previous experience. Georgina gave excellent guidance, made suggestions, but also allowed me to develop my own ideas.

We had a really lovely day on Thursday. Georgina explained the process of using silver clay and paste very well. After that, we were able to design and create our own pieces whilst Georgina was always on hand for help and guidance.
The magic happened when after firing our pieces came out of the kiln and we were starting to polish them.
I personally made three pieces, one statement pendant in the shape of an ivy leaf using silver paste and two smaller ones using silver clay. All I can say is that the course was very enjoyable and very good value for money! Highly recommended!

We had a brilliant day. Georgina was a great teacher - she guided us really well, but also let us do our own thing, and we made some lovely pieces. It's not a cheap craft to do, but this course is very good value. Beautiful venue too. Highly recommended!
