  • Description

    Join me at my home workshop in Cornwall for a workshop session where you will learn traditional skills and techniques needed to create jewellery. You will learn to set a piece of sea glass as well as learning to texture, forge and finish your own piece of silver jewellery that you will take home at the end of the session.


    You will learn how to create the perfect silver ring by measuring, making a setting, cutting, filing, soldering, texturing and polishing, before setting your own piece of sea glass.


    A short drive away from St. Ives, there is free parking on my driveway.
