About This Class

This class will teach you how to make not one but two pairs of lovely earrings!

2c0a732e

And even better, these earrings use only small amounts of scrap silver left over from other projects.

Each pair of earrings starts off as two discs of silver with the centre cut out - donuts! I will then show you the effect of hammering the discs in different directions, ending up with two different designs.

This is one of a series of video classes, each one showing you how to quickly and easily make a lovely pair of earrings - sometimes two pairs! In each video I will show you the materials you will need, explain the tools and equipment and go through all the steps needed to create your own lovely pair of earrings. Along the way I will share with you the same hints and tips that I teach in my jewelry making classes and private tuition so that you become more confident with your techniques and design skills with each class that you watch.

This class is for jewellery makers of all levels of experience from complete beginners upwards.

The equipment needed for the project is explained in the videos and also listed on a downloadable document that covers all of the tools that I will use in future earrings video classes as well so you can plan ahead! All the equipment listed can be used for a variety of other jewellery making projects.
