Silver Clay Jewellery Beginner’s class

(7 customer reviews)



Make your own fine jewellery using 10g silver clay – all the basics covered, including design, firing and final finishing. This price includes approximately £30 worth of materials and so represents great value. What is even greater value is if you bring a friend, I offer a discount if 2 book together.




In this one day course, you will learn the basics of silver clay, which will enable you to make your own jewellery (pure silver once fired).  You will then fire and polish your work. 10g of silver clay will be provided within the course fee and this is usually enough to make 2 to 3 pieces depending on your design. This class generally runs for around 3.5 to 4 hours, but sometimes depends on how much finishing we need to do to your pieces.  Silver clay can be fired by torch, on a gas hob or using a kiln, I will talk you through all 3 processes. I also offer technique specific classes, such as making and soldering silver stud earrings, wraparound rings, using silver paste to make leaves in jewellery, plus more as I have time to list them.

If you’ve never tried this medium it is the quickest way to achieve fine silver jewellery and the feel of it is pure alchemy. If you are into eco crafts, you could argue this is perfect as the silver is recycled from the car manufacturing industry.

    This was an excellent course. Toni was well organised and knowledgeable. She had a friendly way about helping but also gave space to allow creative focus. Toni was excellent with advice whenever I needed it. I was amazed by the high quality of what I managed to make and how many pieces I managed to make from 10g of clay. Silver clay is magical stuff! Highly recommended!

    I spent the day with Toni yesterday in a silver clay course. It was a really lovely day- relaxed, interesting and informative. Made some lovely jewellery and learned a lot. I would recommend this day to anyone interested in making some unique pieces of jewellery. Lovely.

    Toni is great teacher. She is enthusiastic and encouraging, adapting her teaching to the needs and pace of each student in our small group. Toni has an amazing selection of textures, cutters, moulds and design ideas to inspire you. The individual guidance and support we each received from Toni gave us the confidence to produce two or three lovely bespoke pieces which we were all delighted with. We highly recommend her courses and are looking forward to booking again in the future.

    I was given this silver clay course as a present. I was very puzzled beforehand how one could possibly make some silver jewellery in a day and take ik back home with you.
    Well, I did not go home without some nice jewellery and without having a fun, relaxed and very creative day !
    The course was beautifully planned out from start to end.
    Using silver clay for making jewellery has clearly endless possibilities and it is something one can do at home afterwards as well.
    Toni is very passionate about her work and loves sharing her knowledge with people.
    Toni, you are a born teacher!
    Thank you for creating a perfect day and making my gift so special !
    This course is a wonderful day out for young and old, friends, families, couples……anybody who likes creating, anybody who likes to take back a long lasting peace of silver jewellery.

    This was an absolute treat of a workshop. Toni led us through each stage with enthusiasm and care. I loved the freedom to experiment way before we got near actual silver clay. Her methodology helped us be really creative and try out all the tools that she has to make different patterns and shapes. By the time we got to the clay we were both very clear what we wanted having started the day with no clue! I am grateful that Toni went out of her way to sort out mistakes I made later on in the process. I am thrilled to bits with the things that I made and have worn them lots already. Practical bespoke treats. Highly recommend and would love to do another course offered by Toni.
