Sterling Silver Textured Earrings

Next Available: Sat, 21 Apr 1:30PM
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 jewellery making skills are required, so no preparation is necessary!

Silver and earring hooks are included in the class cost.

15 March 2018 • Sterling Silver Textured Earrings

Fantastic Gift I received for Christmas. This was a great class very friendly and well explained by our teacher, Ruth. After the initial instructions and safety talk we were encouraged to create with Ruth on hand at all times for help and guidance. As a beginner I felt very comfortable and satisfied with my effort. Result, very happy pupils with our own unique jewellery. I would highly recommend this course.

This was a fantastic course - Ruth was encouraging and knowledgeable and always happy to help. I didn’t think I would make 4 pairs of earrings in such a short time but I did! Really interesting class. I learnt a few techniques to get me going without having to do it all. Highly recommended for beginners like me.
