Description

Make three pairs of earrings with different textured surfaces including roller printing and hammering. Roller-printing involves pressing a textured material, be it silk, lace, sand paper or fly-wire into a metal's surface. This is done by rolling the metal and material through a rolling mill. Even the tiniest and most delicate detail can create impressive results. Hammering silver will result in different textures depending on the hammers used. Oxidisation can also be used to create a beautiful contrast with sterling silver that has been hammered and roller-printed.  

Make your earrings with your own design.  

No previous jewellery making skills are required, so no preparation is necessary!

Silver and earring hooks are included in the class cost.

This was a fantastic course. Well organised and lots of fun. Ruth was amazing and I got to keep 4 lovely pairs of gorgeous earrings. Can’t wait to do another class. Thank you 😊

This is a fabulous workshop and I thoroughly enjoy it. Ruth is a great teacher, very approachable and helpful and makes the learning process an enjoyable experience. Every student left with 3 to 4 pairs of beautiful earrings, I highly recommend this course.

I found the class so enjoyable, it left me wanting to do more classes. The teacher (Clare I think) was so great with showing us what to do and then assisting us with our own designs. I would be very keen to do more classes with her!
