Enjoy a creative few hours at my home in Lightwood withh views overlooking Cocknage and Florence Park, and make your very own set Sea Glass or Pottery Shard pendant!
 
I will be on hand to closely guide you and the other participants through each step, ensuring you make your pendant yourself.
 
Make your own set pendant choosing from a 10mm cabochon of:
-pottery shards
-sea glass
-when available, a variety of gemstones
 
The steps include measuring and soldering the bezel strip, joining to a base, filing, shaping, piercing/attaching a bezel, and polishing. using a blowtorch, adding texture, attaching a granulation of silver, and many other skills. Silver and tool use is included in the price, and your pendant will go with you ready to wear at the end of the class!
 
This workshop typically lasts around 3 - 3 1/2 hours in total and is aimed at complete beginners, but all are welcome. A drink and snack will be provided whilst your earrings are polishing, so please let me know if you have any food allergies.
 
This is a very hands-on class. If you normally wear glasses for reading, we recommend you bring these. Please wear old clothes that are not loose and closed-toed shoes. Long hair must also be tied back. We currently have no strict age limit on classes but please email us before booking a space for anyone under the age of 16 just to confirm this with us.
