Silver Charm Bracelet Workshop

2nd July 2022 - 2nd July 2022

About this event: Make your own hand-crafted charm bracelet in this 3-hour workshop. You will learn how to use basic jewellery making tools to cut and shape metal and how to apply different techniques including hand stamping and planishing, to create textures and patterns on your charms. After choosing your charm shapes from a range of designs you will be guided through the making process by your tutor to produce your very own piece of handmade jewellery. You will produce a silver bracelet personalised with silver, metal, and gemstone bead charms.
