Hollow Lentil Beads

Learn how to create beautiful beads from silver sheet

Course Summary

 Take your soldering skills to the next level and learn how to make beautifully textured and tactile hollow beads! These lovely beads can then be used in bracelets, earrings or even as their own as pendants.

The Hollow Lentil Beads start off as sheet metal, relatively thin when compared to the size of the finished beads, as the bead shape adds a lot of strength. This means that the project is very cost-effective. As a bonus, the class also gives extra tips for getting the best results from texturing sheet metal with a rolling mill.

A safety note: please do watch all of the soldering information before soldering the beads closed.

The Hollow Lentil Beads class is also available as part of the Intermediate Silversmithing course bundle.

2 hrs 11 mins long, 16 lessons

Materials needed: sheet metal large enough to cut two dicsc per bead, 0.5mm to 0.7mm thick
