On Wednesday, a big group of us met at the Penzance Art Club for a silver jewellery-making workshop.
We learned how to cut our silver wire and bend it into circular shapes using ring or bangle molds that looked like big metal cones. Then came the exciting soldering moment! After dipping our pieces in cold water and then in a magical bubbling solution, we could see things beginning to take shape.
It was a brilliant day and we all learned so much! What a way for Sue Knights to spend her birthday! Thank you so much to Val Puddiphatt for organising it for us.
We will all be wearing our creations to the May meeting so you can see what we got up to. And perhaps we’ll be able to run a second workshop for those of you who missed out this time.
