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. I’ve also researched some of the best value tools so you don’t have to, just click the links in the course workbook, Easy!

For the love of jewellery making tools

For the love of jewellery making tools

You may already know that I’m a tool geek… I massive tool geek! Yes, I love all the jewellery making tools I use to make my jewellery. Each tool is designed for a specific job and I love that it helps me carry out a specific jewellery making technique well.

I must mention my love of tools quite often because I regularly receive comments from other jewellers, particularly on Instagram,  telling me they love jewellery making tools too!

Shout out for Maun Industry Pliers

Last year I was asked to give feedback on Maun Industries new website. I gladly offered my suggestions and was delighted to receive a personal thank you from them for my efforts. Maun Industries manufacture great quality jewellery tools and I particularly love their parallel action pliers for my jewellery making. Click here to find out more about these Maun pliers.

Since then I’ve developed a good relationship with Maun Industries and have been lucky enough to have my jewellery designs featured on their website and social media. It is wonderful to be chosen by them as a designer who uses their tools for jewellery making. Thank you so much Maun Industries.

I originally bought my Maun parallel action pliers back in 2002 and they are still going strong. I use them pretty much every day. They are perfect for straightening wire and it’s surprising how often I need to use them in silver jewellery making. I really believe they will last me a lifetime.

As a teacher, I’m always recommending tools to my students in my jewellery making classes. You may have read my previous post “what jewellery tools to I need” in which I recommend tools for budding jewellery designers to get as part of a beginners jewellery making tool kit?

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.
