Silversmithing for Beginners

A series of classes teaching you all the basic but essential silversmithing skills that you need to create beautiful jewellery.

About the Course

The Silversmithing for Beginners course introduces you to all the wonderful techniques you will need to start making your own beautiful jewellery - and has plenty of tips for the more experienced students too!

The classes currently available cover how to make bangles, chains, rings and pendants, and more classes will be added to the course over time. As with all classes on The Jeweller's Bench, once you've enrolled there are no limits to how many times you can watch a class, or for how long you can watch it for!

If you need any extra help as you work your way through the classes do join us over on The Jeweller's Bench Café group over on Facebook - the perfect place to ask for advice and to show off what you've been making.

As more classes are added to the course the price will increase. Buy now and get access to all future classes as well at  the price you pay now!

Tools and Materials

Each class includes a section explaining the tools and materials needed to make that project, and also discusses alternatives that may be suitable. Downloadable equipment lists are also available.

Some of the classes may look as though they need quite a bit of kit, but do remember that most of the equipment will be used for many different projects, many times over. A list of reputable suppliers can be found over on The Jeweller's Bench blog.

Joanne Tinley

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!
