Sterling Silver Jewellery 2 days with Melinda Scarborough

Sterling Silver Jewellery 2 days with Melinda Scarborough


Create your own beautiful jewellery with Sterling Silver, Pearls and Semi-Precious Stones

On this popular 2-day workshop you will use a variety of equipment to make as many stunning pieces as you can under Melinda's guidance. The number of items you make will vary according to your pace.   Melinda brings all the tools and equipment essential for any proper silver jewellery course.  

Once people become familiar with the tools the designs start flowing. Your design will be unique; you will learn cutting, forming, doming, soldering, texturing and polishing. You can work at your own pace and make the most your workshop time.  All photos are student pieces from our Greystoke workshop.
