Q: How much do I need to spend on jewellery tools. A: I’ve calculated you’ll need approx £40 on consumables and £100 on tools. Because I’ve broken down the tool lists for each step you can spread your spending and only order tools as and when you need them. 

Q: How much space will I need? A: You’ll need a table and a chair. I started making jewellery on an office desk but you can use the kitchen table, a desk or pick up an old table from a charity shop. 

Q: I’ve never used tools before and am worried about safety. A: I include lots of safety tips in my tutorials and as long as you follow those and are sensible you should be fine. If you have any concerns please contact me.

Q: I’m not based in the UK, is this online course for me? A: Yes, this course if for anyone who wants to learn the basics of silver jewellery making. Whilst there are links to reputable suppliers based in the UK you can research for tool suppliers nearer to you. Please be aware that if you order tools and bullion from abroad you may be charged import taxes. Check your local import export rules.

In making this online course I’ve scoured the internet and can’t find a stand alone online ring making course like this anywhere in the UK.

Google Review

I’m delighted to say that I recently received a Google review from a lovely customers of mine.

For me it’s invaluable to receive a Google review as it gives potential customers or students impartial information about my jewellery business. I can tell you that I love my job with a passion and want to give my very best to all my customers but doesn’t it sound even more convincing coming from those who’ve actually experienced it for themselves? If people find my business as a result of a Google Search or on Google Maps they can read a public Google review that my customers have left.

Feedback from Emma’s jewellery classes

Feedback from Emma’s jewellery classes

I really can’t believe that I’ve been teaching jewellery making to adults for 5 years. My first jewellery classes were in October 2011. I’ve been going back through the feedback from my students and found this below from one of my very first students Emma. Emma came for a 3 hour jewellery making workshop which is suitable for beginners, and made this sterling silver ring. Below is the feedback she gave me after one of my jewellery classes:

“Thanks again so much for the class. I can’t believe I learnt so much in such a short space of time and came away with a piece of jewellery I made myself! Thanks for your patient guidance and kindness.” (Student Emma)

It makes me happy when I hear feedback like that. Thanks Emma. I really enjoy teaching silversmithing and jewellery making to my students and long may it continue!

If you want to make a silver ring or want to learn jewellery making, I offer a range of  jewellery classes and workshops at my studio in Birmingham. Click here to read about the jewellery making courses on offer.

Thinking of getting some jewellery tools?

If you are thinking about making jewellery then here is some information about jewellery lessons and what jewellery tools you need. I hope you find it useful.

With the inclination, almost anyone can teach themselves simple wire and bead jewellery at home but if you are considering doing silversmithing and jewellery i.e. metal work at a workbench then I’d say you will definitely need some lessons.

Beginner’s lessons in silversmithing and jewellery can be sought in several ways. Either look for a short evening course in jewellery and silversmithing at a local college or find a local jewellery designer who will teach you at their studio.  Evening classes are usually in a larger group and therefore less expensive and give you a good taste of what jewellery making is all about. If you can afford a bit more I’d highly recommend arranging private or small group lessons with a jewellery teacher at their studio. You learn the basic skills of jewellery making , how to use jewellery tools and so much more. Often it’s the hints and tips you can only get from your tutor in an intimate situation that you find most useful and never forget. My first jewellery lessons were with a group of 4 students taught by Jackie Jones. It was here I fell in love with working in silver.

 What you should have in your tool box:

You can continue to learn silversmithing and jewellery all your life and there are countless jewellery tools for the job so once you’ve established that you want to continue learning jewellery making, either as a hobby or more seriously, you need to get yourself tooled up. Here is the list of jewellery tools for beginner’s and some photos. These are the first jewellery tools I purchased in 2002 and there still very much in working order. Ask the tool supplier if they will offer a discount for tools if you are buying a beginners set. As you progress you can add to your tools as and when you need them.
