Enamel and Silver Ring Making course, Phoenix Brighton


You will learn basic jewellery making techniques such as cutting sterling silver wire, using a jeweller’s piercing saw to form a ring and soldering the different shapes together to form your own piece. The silver will then be prepared for enamelling with silver cloisonné wires. The cloisonné technique of enamelling with fine silver or gold wires has its roots in ancient China and can be seen around the world. There are magnificent examples of large cloisonné vase surfaces in the Royal Pavilion, Brighton. At the end of the course you will take home a beautifully crafted ring of your own design.

Copper discs, enamels and fine silver cloissone wires will be included in the course price.

Various sizes of silver discs and ring shank wire will be available to buy during the 6 week course.

Suitable for all levels including beginners.

Costs: £120
Days: 6 Thursday evenings
Times: 18:00 - 21:00
Dates: 20 June - 25 July
