During this workshop, you will be learning the basic skills of jewellery making. From piercing, annealing, shaping, soldering, filing, sanding and polishing metal you will gain a great overview of the jewellery making process and make your very unique piece. We will be working with brass, metal and silver fittings where necessary for allergic reasons. As the golden appearance of brass metal is not everyone’s favourite the finished jewellery piece can optionally be silver-plated after completing the workshop.
