About This Class

Practice your sawing and soldering skills, add in some texturing and shaping techniques, and create a simple but beautiful heart pendant!


I'll take you through all the steps from choosing your materials to soldering the two sides of the heart together, showing you the same hints and tips that I teach my students in my workshop.

The equipment needed for the project is explained in the videos and also listed on a downloadable document. I have kept the equipment needed to a minimum, and all the equipment listed can be used for a variety of other jewellery making projects. Other downloadable class documents are a template for the heart and a booklet with hints and tips to help you with your sawing.

This class is part of a series teaching you all the basic but essential silversmithing skills that you need to create beautiful jewellery. My aim is to get you confident with sawing, filing, texturing and shaping your silver, and to add in some beginner stone-setting techniques too.

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...
