Our Gemstone Setting Course is the perfect place to start if you want to try your hand at Jewellery design and making or have done previous courses and want to develop your skills further!
We understand how daunting it is to start something new & how easy it is to lose it, if you don’t use it 😊
We pride ourselves on small intimate classes, this is so that:
1. You, our students feel comfortable in your new explorations
2. Our teachers can really get to know you and help and guide you through each class.
What will I learn?
In this fun and flexible course you will learn how to make a pendant or ring in sterling silver from a set design and learn how to set a gemstone of your choice within it!
Sunday, 17th January from 10:00am – 5:30pm. With an hour break for lunch.
Why learn with Silver Works?
Unlike traditional institutions, our priority is to help you learn & develop a new skill, not profit.
This is why we offer only 6 places within our bespoke courses, so you get the most out of each class!
You will be taught by a highly experienced goldsmith/silversmith, working within the industry who has an abundance of Jewellery design experience.
What does the course cover?
You will learn how to create a pendant or ring out of sterling silver and how to set a flush setting within it!
On completion of this carving course, you will have:
- Pierce (cut out) a silver pendant
- Embellish your pendant or ring with flush setting with your chosen gemstone
- Practice in morning with copper and then set in silver in the afternoon!
We provide Tea & coffee and some chocolate 😉
All tools and equipment, drills & aprons are provided for the duration of the course.

Health and Safety
We ask that you wear closed shoes. You will be provided with aprons to keep your clothes clean. We have halved our class capacity to ensure the safety and well being of our staff and students during the current situation we find ourselves in. We ask that all students and teachers wear visors or masks during our class, as an added precaution, to keep each other safe. If you don’t have a mask, one will be provided for you. Each of our studios have been fitted with perspex dividers. We have installed sanitation stations for you to use on entering and exiting our premises.
