Gemstone Pendant Workshop


Designed for beginners, this is a fun and informative class where students get to make their own cabochon gemstone pendant using sterling silver sheet metal and wire. Come and learn the ancient art of silver jewellery making through demonstrations and then giving it a go yourself while you create your own take home piece. In this class you will use a jeweller’s saw for cutting and piercing metals, solder pieces together with a blow torch, use texturing tools to add patterns to your metal, make a bezel and set your own gemstone, and add patina and polishes to your final piece.

If you would like to plan your design beforehand, please note that the average size of sheet silver each student will receive is 5cm x 5cm big. The class fee does not include a silver chain necklace, and it’s recommended that you bring your own chain to the class. Silver chain necklaces, extra metals and gemstones will be available to purchase at the class if you would like to buy a necklace or make more than one pendant.

We will use a blow torch to anneal and solder metals, so I urge students who attend this class to please wear comfortable closed toe shoes, and students with long hair to tie it back for the duration of the class.

  • 5 hours of guidance and assistance as you create your own piece
