Description

Drop earrings

Experiment with texture and shape as you cut, form and finish a pair of drop earrings to your own design from the sheet material. Drill a hole for the links and ear wire which you will have also made by yourself. You will learn to mark out a shape, cut the metal with shears and a saw, file the pieces to shape and add texture with abrasives and punches. You will use polishing machines to achieve a matt or mirror finish

 

Stud earrings

Practicing first with copper sheet, then silver, you will learn to cut, shape and finish a pair of stud earrings from the provided material. Choose a shape from the stencils or design and draw your own. When your earrings are cut and polished, find out how to solder the ear posts using a butane torch and silver solder. Next they will need ten minutes in the pickle and it’s tea and biscuit time! Give them a clean and a final polish and take them home!.
