    A Whole New Level of 'Unique'!

    'Unique' something everyone aspires to produce - now you can be sure your designs are not only one-of-a-kind, but also express your personal creativity, style or passion!


What is Metal Clay?!

'Metal clay' is a new jewellery technology that comes from advances in powder metallurgy. It is composed of pure silver particles, water and binders. In this form it is soft and malleable like plasticine: very easy to sculpt into any shape you can imagine. When your design is ready, you 'fire' the piece - raising it to high temperatures and causing the water and binders to evaporate and the metal particles to 'sinter' or fuse together, leaving a solid metal jewellery design! In this Silver-jewellery making workshop, you will use Silver Metal Clay, and produce a design in pure silver (999 silver, more pure than sterling or 925 silver!)

Advanced Finishing Techniques

Advanced Finishing Techniques

The characteristics of a professional finish are highlighted and all past projects are reviewed and perfected. Advanced tools and techniques are then used to create a truly professional finish, all of which are applied to a spectacular final masterpiece project.


Achieving the Look of Enamel

Achieving the Look of Enamel

Enamelling is an inexpensive and popular method of adding value to jewellery via simulation of inlaid gemstones or the creative use of colour. Practice using modern resins to simulate the depth of traditional enamels using popular modern UV/Epoxy techniques.


Moulds and Textures

Moulds and Textures

The creation of rubber moulds and the use of moulds to make multiples of existing jewellery components are skills required by every professional. Learn to capture and re-use textures, deign elements and entire components for future metal clay creations.

Designs using Gold

Designs using Gold

Learn how to minimize waste when working with 22K gold metal clay and how to effectively combine gold, silver and copper clays. For designs that require a tighter budget, ‘Gilding’ techniques with gold leaf represent an affordable and visually stunning alternative to working with solid gold.
