Benefits of Learning Jewellery Making Skills

There are many benefits to learning a new skill in general, but learning how to make jewellery specifically has its own benefits such as:

– Helps you start a new hobby and learn a highly skilled trade
– Connect back in with your creative side
– Improves focus and problem solving skills
– Unique and personalised gifts are a guarantee for your loved ones
– Working with your hands relaxes you
– There are so many different ways to do everything so you’ll have lots of fun exploring what works best for you!

What will I do?

Make your own sterling silver charm in different shapes including, circular, diamond, square, heart, star, flower, pear, rectangle and even shamrock! Learn the basics of metal smithing, guided by our expert and fun teachers! 

To make your charm, you will first stamp out the shape you like, then you will file it, apply emery paper, add textures and an initial if you like. The teacher will drill a hole for you and you can add the bail. Finally you decide if you want to make it a sparkley or matt finish!

That’s it – your charm has been handmade by you! Add it to your necklace or bracelet, or if you need to you can purchase a chain in store at a discounted rate especially for class goers!

Charm makers over time have become more and more creative – check out our gallery to see what people have been making, it really is a great way to be creative, learn a new skill and come away with a stunning, hand made piece of jewellery that you can keep as a wonderful memento of your time in Dublin.

“So much fun. It was great to be able to book and have the place just for a group of friends especially in the current climate. We did the charm making class. There was lots of giggles and flying charms when polishing. We really want to go back and do the ring making class next. Staff are all super friendly and very helpful. “
