Based on student feedback we have recently launched a new one day advanced silver class called Make your own silver findings, where you learn to craft your own findings such as ear wires, clasps, and brooch pins. This allows you to truly customise your designs and add a handcrafted and bespoke element to your work.
This class is specially designed for those who have attended our soldering masterclass or are confident with soldering and using a torch so that you can get straight down to work.
Projects covered will include:
- earrings (earring hooks and soldered posts)
- clasps (a T-bar or Toggle clasp and an S-clasp)
- brooch pin
- making your own jump rings
Once you’ve learned these techniques you’ll have the skills to make the pieces you imagine. Here are some innovative metal findings to inspire you:
