Come join me and make yourself a unique and beautiful hammered Neck Piece. We will use Sterling Silver, Base metals Brass and Copper to make loops and discs, which we will texture using hammers and other techniques. We will assemble your design your way on a Silver Chain or use Leather and Wax Thread to hang your creation.
The workshop is limited to only a maximum of 5 and a minimum of 4 students, This allows for nearly one on one help and assistance and provides us all with a safe working environment. You will learn to use a LPG gas torch to Solder and Anneal (soften the metals) you will learn to Cut with a jewellers saw, File and texture with precision tools.
