Learn how to design and make your own unique, stunning silver jewellery on this comprehensive Silversmithing Jewellery course from Arts University Bournemouth.


Developed for beginners, the Silversmithing Jewellery course from Arts University Bournemouth will enable you to design and create your own pieces of jewellery in a friendly and relaxed atmosphere. You will be guided through the basic principles of jewellery making and introduced to the tools you will be using such as the piercing saw, hammers, pliers and blowtorch for silver soldering.

Programme Overview

You will start with copper for practice before moving on to working with silver. Your first silver piece of jewellery will be a ring sized to fit you. After the introduction to these skills, the second half of the course provides the time to work on your own collection of jewellery, under the guidance of tutor, Lesley H Phillips or Yvette Cannon, and accompanying technician, Imogen Hughes.

Through an informative induction, you will also be provided with all the relevant health and safety information needed regarding good workshop practice.

One of the great advantages of working in silver is that it is relatively easy to continue working at home after the class without a big investment, as you can use a small selection of tools to start with. Each session will cover a specific area, with examples, and will be followed by a practical mini brief to enhance your design and practical skills.
