Learn all the traditional silversmithing techniques you need to create your choice of a beautiful pendant or ring with a bezel set cabochon stone! 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 tested and improved by the end of the session. Many of the photos shown here are examples of pendants made at previous stone setting workshops. A fantastic range of stones will be available for you to choose from. You're sure to find the colour, size and shape of stone for your perfect project! You are welcome to bring your own stone to work with if you wish, but please contact me before the workshop to check it's suitability. 14 to 16 year olds are welcome but will need to be accompanied by a paying adult. Only 8 places are available to ensure that everyone gets the help and attention they need. Joanne Tinley is a jewellery designer and qualified teacher offering workshops in Hampshire. Please see my other course listings for further workshops available, or get in touch for more details.
