If you have prior jewellers experience, you'll learn even more about how to make your own jewellery in part two of this silversmithing course.

Take your skills to the next level in this virtual experience and experiment with new tools like the screw mount bench peg, electric drill and saw. These new tools will open up a host of design possibilities, as well as allow you to expand your newly acquired skills from the DIY Silversmithing 1 online class.

You will learn the classic art of silversmithing, by learning how to create sterling silver pendants, earrings, bracelets, chains using silver and copper wire. Keep them for yourself, or if you're stuck for gifting ideas, give your loved ones one of your own creations.

You will build on your jewellery making design, hammering, measuring, shaping, texturing, forming, and filing skills, as well as learn how to use the saw, drill, and screw mount bench peg.

After a few online classes, and through multiple projects, you will no doubt build your skills and confidence with using specific silversmithing tools. It's up to you whether you then want to advance to the next online course. This introduces newer tools along with more advanced projects and techniques. Or, simply explore the various aspects of wrapping, shaping wire, and sawing shapes, expanding on the possibilities with the tools you already have in your kit.

You will be able to confidently make your own jewellery, with no supervision in no time! This series of craft courses online will offer you all the help and guidance you need to get started on your own creative endeavours afterwards.

In this workshop series, you will be making:

  • Oval disc earrings with dangles
  • Drilled gemstone earrings
  • Mixed metal chain with pendant
  • Scroll cut pendant with pearl accent
  • Cuff bracelet

So if you don't know what to do this weekend at home, whether you're in Manchester, Edinburgh, Bristol or anywhere in the UK, this virtual class is something different and exciting to try!

Explore your love of jewellery at your own pace with one of the most creative indoor activities to try at home. If you want productive things to do at home, this is perfect if you want to keep busy in lockdown.

The Art of being a maker!
Makers take raw materials and transform them into objects of desire.
It is an art form, it is a craft, and it can be learned!

Come and experience a workshop with Masterful Makers. In as little as 2 hours you can walk out with a piece of handmade jewellery, leather bag, stunning knotted mala or your own personalized skincare products. All designed and crafted by you!

Let me introduce myself, I am Victoria White, a one-woman dynamo/mad scientist/designer & maker of crafts. I am the owner of Masterful Makers and offer boutique workshops from my studio.

My love for art, the history of man and pretty shiny things came together while being pregnant with my daughter and working for the Museum of African American Art in Florida. I fell in love with African trade beads. They were historical in context and heavy with human drama. They were an artefact, an antique and pretty. Pairing the few trade beads I had with semi-precious stones and sterling silver wire I began to make my first wrapped earrings. It was very therapeutic and relaxing, until my husband (at the time) saw the box of earrings I had made and took them to work. He returned that afternoon and presented me with a box of money, after having sold them all to his work colleagues! And that is how all this madness began.

That was a bit over 25 years ago. And here we are now!

I have my BA in art history and a Diploma in Visual Arts and Silversmithing.

I use my workshops to pass on my skills and knowledge so that you too will see just how enjoyable being a Maker can be. Coming away with personally designed and created pieces!

I am Victoria White and Making is my passion, let me make it yours as well!

Come and experience a Masterful Makers Workshop!
