Bangle Making Course
Silver Bangle making
Silver flat bangle
You will be introduced to some basic workshop tools and use them to make a simple flat open bangle. First working in copper to develop your metalworking skills, then you will use the silver sheet. You will learn to cut to size and shape, file and polish, adding texture with punches and hammers. You may wish to use the letter and number stamps to personalise your jewellery.
Silver wire bangle
You start off working in copper, learning to use tools and getting to know the metal.
Then, working with a length of 3mm diameter silver wire, you will learn how to hammer and flatten it on the steel block. You will then cut it to length and finish the ends. Add texture with the planishing hammer or file to a smooth finish. You will use the polishing motor to get a mirror finish. Bend it around a former and give it a final polish. You end up with a very simple but attractive open bangle that you have made yourself!
