About the Event
This workshop is just for the two of you so it can be personalised to the earrings or pendant designs that you want to make. As it is so small you get lots of help and attention and it is suitable for complete beginners. In this workshop you can make your own bespoke fine silver pendant or drop earrings from real leaves, acorns or shells using the alchemy of silver clay.
