Make your wedding day truly personal. Come to Silverpetal Studio to make your own silver jewellery. This workshop is held 10am to 4pm on either a Saturday or Sunday on a date to suit.
This is a special beginner’s 1:1 day for you to have a go at jewellery making and make special keepsakes for your wedding. You can make your own jewellery for your special day, or presents for your bridesmaids. This is an ideal gift for the bride to be.
What will we do on the day?
We will start this day by designing the jewellery pieces. You will be given careful guidance to ensure your designs can be made within the time and at beginner’s level. Then you will be shown the necessary skills to make your pieces. This would include how to heat, solder, saw, shape, add textures and polish. You will make a practice piece first – on copper sheet. Examples of some of the techniques and designs achievable in the day will be available for you.
Your silver wedding jewellery
Being able to make your own unique jewellery for your big day makes this workshop truly special. Guidance will be given for designing your items. However, it’s a good idea to have some thoughts about what you would like to make prior to the day. For instance – would you like the jewellery to feature hearts or flowers? Or maybe something more simple. You will need to decide beforehand whether the jewellery will be made for you or for your bridesmaids. During this workshop there is time to make up to 3 pairs of simple earrings or 2 larger items like a bangle and pendant.
