Make a pendant and earring jewellery set at The JQ Set Birmingham

Make a Domed Pendant & Earring Set – Saturdays

This Improvers 1 level domed jewellery course takes place every Saturday for 3 weeks, starting Saturday 4th May 2024, from 10am to 4pm.

Learn how to make your own pendant and earring jewellery set in our bright and shiny jewellery making workshop in Birmingham. You will learn to make a domed silver pendant and earrings with your own unique textured pattern in the metal. A wonderful and personalised set of jewellery for you to wear home at the end of the course or to give away as a gift.

This Improver 1 level jewellery making course is suitable for students who have completed our Beginners course. It takes place over three consecutive Saturday daytimes from 10.00am-4.00pm. Adding to the skills that you have already learnt as a beginner, on this course you will start by experimenting with metal texturing techniques. Once you’ve chosen your favourite pattern, you will learn doming, sweat-soldering, and how to make a handmade catch to finish off your pendant and earring set. The tutor will make the silver jewellery set alongside you and use their pieces to demonstrate each step. You will be provided with a printed handout in case you need a little reminder along the way, and to refer back to if you’d like to make another set! Each class takes you through the next stage of the process, so please make sure you can attend all the dates.

You will need to bring your reading glasses, if you wear them, and a notebook and pen. You must know how to solder silver jewellery as a pre-requisite to attend this course.

This improvers course adds really important techniques to your skill-set, like sweat-soldering – a process used for joining small pieces of metal to large pieces, like earring posts on ear studs. It’s tricky at first, but as a jewellery maker you will use it almost every time you’re at the bench. Following on from this course, you could also choose to build on these skills, like more advanced sweat-soldering and add simple stone-setting to your toolbox with our Stone-Set Stacking Rings course. If you can’t make these dates, sign up to our Newsletter to find out first when the next round of courses are available to book.
