Sterling Silver Textured Earrings

Next Available: 17 Oct 5:30PM
3.5 hours


Make three to four 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 jewelry making skills are required, so no preparation is necessary!

Silver and earring hooks are included in the class cost.

The class was a relaxed environment & Ruth explained all of the concepts clearly. She was very helpful with any queries & assisted everyone in make something to their own taste & unique style. Highly recommended! Thankyou :)

A thoroughly enjoyable experience - a first time participant in jewellery making, but finished the class with some immediately wearable and unique pieces of jewellery. Will definitely be back to create more. Instructor was very knowledgeable, helpful and patient with everyone - thank you!

We learnt how to print patterns into metal; about oxidisation and other texturising techniques. The class was brilliant and inspiring. The teacher was fantastic and helped us to work through our ideas. We all had so much fun. Thank you! Five stars.
