Wooden Jewellery With Silver And Pearl Inlay Short Course

Course description

This course explores how to make contemporary sculptural jewellery pieces using wood with silver inlay and pearls.

There will be guided exercises which you can adapt to create your own designs. You will have the opportunity to look at finished pieces. Step-by-step hand-outs and material sourcing information will also be provided.

The first project will be a pendant of 5mm depth wood inlaid with small silver dots. The second project will be to make a ring or pendant with 10mm depth wood and silver line and or an inlaid pearl. There will then be time to experiment with different woods, designs and shaping or decorating techniques.

Who should take this course?

Complete beginners or those with experience of working with metal who want to add skills in another material by making minor adaptation to their current hand-tools.

By the end of the course you will have finished jewellery pieces in wood of your own design and the skills to continue experimentation on your own if desire.
