A length of wire, round mandrels to wrap it round, jeweller's saw, files, hammers, blow torch, solder....... the Silver Chain Bracelet workshop uses some of the simplest tools and materials but at the end of the day you will take home a beautiful piece of unique jewellery, one that you can proudly wear and say "yes, I made this!"
You will learn some of the most useful basic silver jewellery making skills, using them to make each link a different shape, size or texture if you wish. Many of the techniques that we will cover can also be used to make pendants, earrings and much more, and you will also learn how to make different styles of clasps to finish your bracelet.
This workshop is suitable for beginners to jewellery making as it teaches many of the basic skills needed for more advanced skills, however those with previous experience will also find their skills, especially their soldering skills, tested and improved by the end of the session.
Only 8 places are available to ensure that everyone gets the help and attention they need.

What a brilliant day. With little experience of jewellery making. I came away with a beautiful bracelet that I'm so proud of. I was totally supported and encouraged throughout the process. Joanne is totally professional and gives her time and experience so unselfishly. I cant wait for the next course.
Response from Joanne Tinley Jewellery:Thank you so much for your lovely review Dianne! It was great to welcome you back to the studio yesterday, and your bracelet was beautiful!
