On Monday I started my beginners jewellery course. I was a bit worried it would be very basic, starting with something like beading and then perhaps going on to silver work. I was really happy to start straight away by making a silver band ring.
Because it was the first lesson, we had to go through all the health and safety stuff and an introduction to all the tools that we’d be using, which ate into the hands on time, but thats important stuff that needs to be covered in every course obviously. This coming week, we’ll be carrying on with the rings we’ve been making by finishing them off and polishing them up. I can’t wait!!
Of course, I had to have a little accident haha I managed to saw into my finger slightly, still its a lesson learnt!
Here is the ring in process. I still need to shape it a bit more and file it so its more even, but it’s getting there
