Finishing Brooch Pins

A free video tutorial teaching you an easy way to perfectly finish your brooch pins

About the Tutorial

I love brooches! I don't often wear pendants and necklaces, but you will always find a brooch on my coat, cardigan and even my workshop apron! I find that they have more personality than any other type of jewellery - and you can certainly get away with larger brooches with more eye-catching designs!

I make my brooch fittings myself, from the hinge that the pin is threaded through and the hook that holds it securely in place to the pin itself. This ten minute video tutorial will teach you everything you need to know about the last stage of how I make my brooch pins - how to sharpen the end quickly and easily - for free!

This video class is just one in a collection of free tutorials. You can enrol on each one individually or enrol on the whole bundle so that you don't miss out on new classes!

Tools and Materials

To sharpen your brooch pin you will need:

* a pendant drill/flexishaft, dremel or similar
* a mandrel holding two paper polishing discs
* safety glasses

Tutor and Founder of The Jeweller's Bench

The Jeweller's Bench is run by Joanne Tinley. She has been making her own jewellery for as long as she can remember and left her first career as a school teacher to set up business as a  jewellery designer and tutor 15 years ago. She is
self-taught and like many people started with wire and beads. Learning how to solder, however, opened up a whole new world of jewellery making,  one that she is keen to share!
