Beginner Silver Clay Jewellery with Rachel



Making genuine silver jewellery is easier than you think. Come and find out how and take home your own gorgeous pieces. Explore different techniques including rolling and cutting the clay, as well as making and using moulds. You will leave with 2 to 4 pieces (depending on the size you work to) of beautiful finished silver jewellery and a love for silver clay too!

This lovely process allows you to be creative in an accessible way, so anyone can do it! Use treasures from your life as inspiration (or even to make your moulds) or just be inspired by the beautiful Shropshire Hills that surround the Severn Studio.

There is a maximum of 6 students per course so there will be lots of help and time to create your beautiful jewellery.

Children under 8 must be accompanied by a paying adult.

A donation to the PANDAS Charity will be made for every booking

Cancellation and a full refund can be obtained up to 2 weeks before the course starts. Start dates may be amended on request.

What can I say except...what a fantastic experience my friend and I had while doing the silver jewellery workshop, the setting was magical and Rach was so patient with us as we decided to go totally off piste and design our own pieces. Can’t wait to do the next work shop and will be recommending it to all my friends and family.
Many thanks Rach, see you soon.

Response from Gifted Crafts Company:

Thank you so much Sharon. You are such a star. I loved working with you on your creative ideas. Such a pleasure. You both made such beautiful and unique pieces. Look forward to seeing you again. All the very best. Rach

I spent a wonderful morning on the Beginner Silver Clay Jewellery course with Rachel.
I loved everything about it, from the setting and the sign at the entrance welcoming me, to the lovely conversations, Rachel's knowledge and passion for what she does, and her encouragement, help and support whilst creating lovely treasures and jewellery.
I will definitely be back to learn more about the art of silver clay, I'm hooked!
Thank you so much for such a lovely experience xx

Response from Gifted Crafts Company:

Thank you Jessica. You are so kind. You really did impress me with the beautiful pieces you produced. Look forward to seeing you again! x

I had an amazing morning with Rach. Snow on the hills but enough tea and coffee to keep my fingers warm while I watched magic being created. The course was well explained, all the equipment was ready to go when I got there. I came away with beautiful jewellery and treasured memories. Thank you.

Response from Gifted Crafts Company:

Thank you Suzie. You are so lovely. And you did brilliantly!

This course was absolutely fantastic - I'm so amazed with the beautiful items I came home with. Who knew clay would turn into silver?! Even now, I still can't believe I made them! They get so many comments! Nothing was too much trouble for Rachel in terms of extra supplies or guidance on what to do/how. We tried so many different techniques over the course of the day and I'm so glad I decided to stay over at the campsite in one of the bell tents. I will DEFINITELY be booking on her other courses as soon as I can.

Response from Gifted Crafts Company:

Thank you so much Carly. And well done for your beautiful pieces. Looking forward to seeing you again.

Myself & my partner did this amazing experience. It was a really fun day, made keys that we will have as a memory forever. Event organisers were very friendly and made us feel very welcome. Would recommend to anyone wanting a great day and something to remember. Would definitely do again. X

Thank you Kieron. Your key rings were a brilliant idea.
