Silver jewellery making workshops

Jewellery making is not only a fabulous craft but a chance for you to spend some well earned relaxing time out of your crazy life.

I offer both bespoke workshops and a selection of short workshops that you can chose from the menu below. Please also get in touch if you have a particular design you would like to make.

You will use traditional tools and learn techniques such as sawing, filing, drilling, forming, soldering, annealing and polishing. Yes, that is a lot of ‘ings’! Also, what has not changed is the sense of reward and satisfaction you will feel for creating your own piece of jewellery. Workshops are for 1 or 2 people. All metals and materials are included in the cost of the workshop as well as tuition from an experienced jewellery maker (me!). Minimum age of participants is 16 unless accompanied by an adult.

Bespoke workshops

I am not one to stifle creativity and if you have a particular piece of jewellery in mind then we can arrange a bespoke workshop. Please contact me with your design idea and then I can determine whether it can be made in 3.5 hours or suggest similar alternatives. You could also book more than one session if you would learn a bit more about metal working.

Make your own wedding rings

Wedding ring workshop
Wedding ring workshop

The build-up of any wedding can prove stressful and over-whelming so why not take some time out and spend time together in a relaxing environment making your own wedding rings? You will be able to work in silver and gold. For platinum you would make the rings in silver and then they would be sent to a casting company to make an exact copy. Photos will be taken throughout the workshop to remind you of a wonderful experience. Price will vary according to metal chosen so please contact me to discuss your requirements.

Why not buy a workshop gift voucher for a loved one or friend? Please contact me for more information. Currently there is no expiry date on vouchers.

Had a perfect day in the workshop yesterday. Jude was wonderful, very patient and definitely a lot of fun. I would highly recommend a day with her creating your own personal piece. It’s so rewarding to be wearing something that I designed and made! I am absolutely in love with it. Thank you so much x
