About This Class

Soldering is great fun and opens up a whole new world in jewellery making, but sometimes it's just as great to use materials that don't stand the heat! That's where rivets come in - a cold connection technique that holds layers of a jewellery design together without the need for a blowtorch.

This second class in my series moves on from the simple wire rivets covered in class one. This time we're going to learn how to use two wire rivets to hold layers of your design together, making sure that everything fits together perfectly.Two wire rivets are perfect for holding larger pieces together, and of course once you've learnt how to use two rivets you can just as easily add in more!

I'm going to make a pendant in the video to show you all the different steps. The top layer on my design is a butterfly sawn from silver sheet and I'm going to rivet it onto a wooden bead - however you could use them to layer copper onto brightly coloured acrylic, patterned pieces cut from a recycled biscuit tin onto silver or leather and metal. The only limit is your imagination and riveting is a great way of using upcycled materials!

Future classes in the series will take you through how and when to use one or more decorative rivets and also how to make rivets from tube. More videos with extra projects to help you practice your new skills will then follow!

I have been making my own jewellery for as long as I can remember and left my first career as a school teacher to set up business as a jewellery designer and tutor nearly 10 years ago. I am self-taught and like many people I started with wire and beads. Learning how to solder, however, opened up a whole new world of jewellery making! 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...
