Learning to fabricate chains will launch your jewellery-making skills to a new realm. An added bonus is it's quite a fun and meditative process that will have your imagination run wild with the possibilities!
The most exciting part of this workshop is the opportunity to learn to fuse with beautiful Argentium Silver to fabricate your chains. If you have never worked with Argentium before, its properties will surely amaze you.
Throughout the workshop, we will explore different wire gauges in relation to your design choice, how to make individual and repetitive links, learning to fuse using Argentium Silver, different methods of texturing wire, and most importantly getting creative with different chain links that can be achieved to make one-of-a-kind jewellery.
By the end of the class, you will have transformed Argentium Silver wire into a creative chain link bracelet, pendant, or necklace. Due to the time restriction of the workshop, designs will be scaled to ensure you are able to achieve a finished piece by the end of the workshop. For more ambitious chain designs, booking a follow-up Open Studio Session may be required. Chains will be finished to a brushed silver and ready to wear. If you would like your chain to be high polished, leave it behind for a night in the tumbler, and it will be posted or ready to collect during the week.
Skills taught:
  • making jump rings and chain links
  • working with wire and different gauges
  • fusing Argentium Silver
