DIY Silversmithing for Beginners 3
In this live streaming silversmithing course, we will apply the skills you learned in course one and two, to begin to create more complex pieces of jewellery! These new tools will open up a host of designing possibilities, as well as expanding on your newly acquired skill from DIY Silversmithing 2.
During the course, we will be introducing the torch, flux and solder. You will learn how to join two pieces of metal together to create an invisible seam. You'll also learn how to attach sawed shapes to metal to create designs as examples below.
This online class can only be taken if you have prior jewellers experience, or have taken the DIY Silversmithing 1 and 2.
During this workshop series, you will make four different projects and will keep the final products.
A jewellery studio in a box is the best way to describe this course. You just provide the space. Work at your own pace to expand and explore your love of jewellery - one of the most creative indoor activities to try at home.

Let me introduce myself, I am Victoria White, a one-woman dynamo/mad scientist/designer & maker of crafts. I am the owner of Masterful Makers and offer boutique workshops from my studio.
My love for art, the history of man and pretty shiny things came together while being pregnant with my daughter and working for the Museum of African American Art in Florida. I fell in love with African trade beads. They were historical in context and heavy with human drama. They were an artefact, an antique and pretty. Pairing the few trade beads I had with semi-precious stones and sterling silver wire I began to make my first wrapped earrings. It was very therapeutic and relaxing, until my husband (at the time) saw the box of earrings I had made and took them to work. He returned that afternoon and presented me with a box of money, after having sold them all to his work colleagues! And that is how all this madness began.
That was a bit over 25 years ago. And here we are now!
I have my BA in art history and a Diploma in Visual Arts and Silversmithing.
I use my workshops to pass on my skills and knowledge so that you too will see just how enjoyable being a Maker can be. Coming away with personally designed and created pieces!
I am Victoria White and Making is my passion, let me make it yours as well!
