Jewellery is enhanced by the use of embellishments to catch the eye with shape, texture and the reflection of light. In this class, you will use sterling silver scraps  & fine silver to do casting in cuttlefish bone, water and in ingot moulds. The unpredictability of the results are half of the fun! Using these cast pieces, you will create jewellery of your own design incorporating stones & other embellishments.

Students will be required to purchase their own metals, which are available at the Centre.
