6 hours Class size 1 to 4

label $395 (or 4 payments of $99 Afterpay)

Learn how to design and hand-make your very own bezel set gemstone pendant during this one day workshop with Claire Brooks!

Suitable for both the absolute beginner and those with jewellery making experience, Claire will teach you to saw-pierce, file, solder, polish and set a cabochon (flat back) gemstone pendant within the relaxed, intimate setting of her studio gallery in Glenelg South.

Class sizes are kept small to four people so that everyone gets plenty of one-on-one time and individual attention. There will also be a 30-minute lunch break during the day to replenish yourself.

A $65 materials kit will be supplied at the beginning of the day which will include a cabochon stone, silk thread, enough silver to create one pendant, saw blades, solder, sandpaper and other consumables. A small selection of chains, findings and premium stones will also be available for purchase if you wish to upgrade.

Share skills and stories while making your own unique jewellery and take home a beautiful gemstone and sterling silver pendant by the end of the day!
