This jewellery making class, "pendantify" is for anyone who has ever wanted to make their own silver pendant. Beginners welcome!

In this hands-on Blue Mountains workshop, you will learn how to use a jeweller’s saw to cut out shapes from sheet metal (both copper and silver) to create a pendant from scratch - designed and hand made by you!

You will begin learning how to work with metal, first using copper to practice saw-piercing and texturing which will help develop your idea. Then move on to creating your own beautiful sterling silver pendant.

Essential techniques covered:

  • Metal cutting: learn how to saw-pierce metal using professional jewellery saw frames
  • Texturing and stamping: whether it’s a hammered texture or stamping, there is a range of tools to experiment with.
  • Anneal and Soldering: using special jewellery torches watch how to anneal metal and solder.
  • Finishing: learn how to file and use emery paper to give your earrings a final finish.

Small class numbers ensure you receive personal attention. Set in the Blue Mountains, Lady Bird Studio / Karinya has expansive views over a valley of trees and the property backs onto the national park.

BYO your lunch, take a break, enjoy the view from the studio and chatting with other class participants.

Please note: The workshop will only go ahead if there are two or more participants - anyone booked will be moved to a new date that suits them.

What a terrific way to spend a Sunday. With only 3 students the class was the perfect size for a lot of one on one instruction and guidance. Fran has great patience with clueless novices Cuppas, a yummy variety of snacks, a lovely dog, a beautiful cat and the gorgeous Blue Mountains view! I even produced (with a fair bit of help) a pendant I'm not embarassed to wear. Thanks Fran, I'll be back.
