 Jewellery making classes
Learn how to design and make your own unique jewellery
Our jewellery making classes in Ramsgate, Sydney are designed to teach you the professional and secure techniques needed to design and make your own jewellery.







Basic class:  Basic threading and wire wrapping are our TUTORIAL free classes held in our Ramsgate showroom and are designed  for beginners. We do not charge tuition for these classes and allow you to learn from any of our many professional designed kits, see  below to view just a few of our kits available, prices from $15.

Basic threading; you will create a necklace or bracelet using Griffin brand jewellery wire and Sterling Silver crimps, learn why we only use  Griffin brand wire and NOT tiger tail and why we crimp with a crimping tool and Sterling Silver crimps.
TOOLS REQUIRED SIDE CUTTER AND CRIMPING PLIER.

Wire wrapping;
is a slightly more involved process where beads are linked and connected to each other with hard wire, usually Sterling  Silver or 14k Gold filled wire; this technique can be used to make bracelets, necklaces and earrings.  

Classes take approximately 2 hours for each technique, with 2 classes running on Saturdays. We recommend that beginners attend  both threading and wire wrapping classes on the same day, with a break for lunch, especially if you have traveled far.
TOOLS REQUIRED FOR BOTH CLASSES: ROUND NOSE PLIERS, CHAIN/FLAT NOSE PLIERS, SIDE CUTTERS AND CRIMPING PLIERS.
