About This Class

Beautifully flattering earrings - made with scrap silver left over from other projects!


This is the first in a series of video classes that I have planned, each one showing you how to quickly and easily make a lovely pair of earrings. 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. Other downloadable class documents include a booklet of hints and tips to improve your sawing technique and a template for the earrings design.

There is something so magical about watching solder flow through a seam, joining two pieces of metal together smoothly.

I work from my studio on the south...
