On 14th April 2010, Georgina Franklin and I ran a jewellery making workshop covering a range of silversmithing skills based on what the students wanted to do. We had a lovely day, and everyone produced high quality work. The students worked on projects including reticulation, claw setting, soldering gold to silver, beading, clasp making, press forming and of course all the basics skills a jeweller uses everyday!
