About the Event

Learn the art of fine silver ring making, using the alchemy of silver clay, an eco-friendly and fun way to make silver jewellery. Learn to make a truly unique piece fine silver ring. With no more than four people per class, all skill levels are catered for, and you’ll get as much guidance as you need.  Silver clay is a relatively new product that can be worked like clay and yet is made of pure silver particles, with a binder and water. When it is fired the result is a pure silver piece which is of fine silver hallmark quality. This is a small class of up to 4 students held in Rebecca Oxenham's jewellery making studio. At the end of the day you will celebrate with a glass of Prosecco or non alcoholic alternative.

This workshop is a little bit more difficult than my beginners silver clay workshop so it is recommended that students attend the beginners workshop first to get a feel for how to work with silver clay. However this course could also be attended by complete beginner students who are are up for more of a challenge or those with some jewellery making experience.

Rebecca works out of her studio at the end of her garden in Hampshire, England. The jewellery created is inspired by her passion for nature and she is committed to supporting biodiversity and protecting the environment. She uses recycled materials such as silver clay which is an 100% recycled product made from recycled silver which is ground up to a fine powder and mixed with a binder. When fired it becomes solid fine silver. Using recycled silver helps to limit the use of child labour in mines as well as the amount of metals that must be produced. This leads to less waste in landfills and helps to slow the consumption and deterioration of natural resources.

Rebecca studied at the Cornwall School for Art Craft and Jewellery for her Level One, Art Clay Diploma Certification in Silver Clay. This is a world-wide, recognised qualification, administered by the official distributors of Art Clay in Europe. She is also a member of AMCAW (Association of Metal Clay Artists Worldwide) and GOJD (Guild of Jewellery Designers).
