What will I make?

A pair of silver drop floral earrings.

What will happen on the day?

You will start the day with a tea or coffee whilst getting to know your fellow makers. You will be supplied with everything you need including pad, pencil, apron, silver and tools.

This class will begin by looking at a variety of floral earrings which you can choose to make, or you may want to adapt them to your own design. Through demonstrations and guidance from the tutor, you will then learn the various ways of cutting out your desired shape, having the chance to practice on a piece of copper before moving onto sterling silver.

You will then make your earring hooks using heat and pliers, which will be threaded through a drilled hole in the flower to create a beautiful pair of silver drop earrings, ready to wear or to be gifted to someone special.

What skills do I need?


Perfect for those starting out or who have little to no experience.

What should I bring?

- Reading glasses (if you need them!) 

- Money or card payment for optional gold plating

What should I wear? 

Clothes: Casual and not too precious as they may get a bit dusty or damaged.  Avoid long, loose fitting sleeves and anything that might catch or get caught whilst you are working.

Shoes: Casual flat shoes and no open toed sandals in case you drop a hammer or something hot on them!

Hair: Tie long hair back.
