Have you been searching for that one special piece to add to your jewellery collection? Instead of spending too much on a store-bought piece that anyone else could have, why not join Studio Subi for their silver clay jewellery making class in Perth.

In this hands-on class, you'll learn about the history of silver clay jewellery making, a fascinating new medium from Japan. You'll learn the basic techniques to mould your silver clay into earrings or a ring, such as cutting, rolling, a folding.

During the full-day class, you will:

  • Learn about the clay
  • Explore textures with natural objects and texture sheets
  • Roll, cut and form the clay into a jewellery item
  • Dry, sand and refine your piece
  • Learn about drilling the clay
  • Learn how to hand fire your clay with a butane torch
  • Learn about patina and oxidising
  • Learn how to correctly finish and polish the piece

Once you have finalised your designs you will fire them for your unique finished product. Not only will you get to take home the jewellery you've made, but it'll be a unique piece that no one else can recreate!

I love the ocean, the Australian Bush and all things nature. I work with silver and semi-precious stone and textiles which reflect my love of the above elements.

I pick up found objects along the way, whether it's a textile, piece of glass off the beach, rusted wire, driftwood, a polished stone or pebble and even those wavy sticks filled with that coloured liquid, people use at evening carnivals. (sorry I don't know what they're called). I like to recycle these objects and incorporate them with my jewellery designs and textiles.

When I was a child, I was captivated by the luxurious saris my mum had, the colours and smoothness. I have only ever used or worn natural fibres and nothing surpasses these! I didn't suddenly bear a love for nature and what she gave us, it was innate in the very fibres of my being. Not trendy because it is the "in thing".

Every six months I re-assess what is necessary: and re-cycle whatever I can, which I feel is no longer necessary.
