What you'll do

If you enjoy wearing silver jewellery, making your own is a great way to experience the process of making your own special piece.

You will learn the entire process of making a bangle with an optional charm. From measuring, cutting, soldering, texturing and shaping to the final stage of polishing. After that, add a charm that you will need to make from silver sheet and involves more hammers, filing and soldering. All in all, a great experience and it will give you an insight into the process I enjoy so much.

I am happy to teach children from 8 years old but they must be supervised by yourself. Prices for children are set to make an anklet or bracelet, if you wish them to make a bangle (will require use of a naked flame, you will need to book an adult session).

Please note
Please ensure you have closed shoes with enclosed toes (a hot bit a silver between the toes makes me cringe), cloths to get dirty, jeans are ideal. Baggy, woolly tops are a hazard in the workshop. Hair is best tied back out the way, it's very easy to singe. I have spare aprons, eye and mouth protection.
Also, I have had a few customers request to change what they would like to make on the day - I can often accommodate this but it normally takes much longer, for this I will have to charge extra on the day. Please ask for more details.
3 people = 3 hours, each extra person add half hour onto the time.

Hi,

I have been making jewellery for over 10 years now. 7 of those years has been making for my business, Brett and Leni Handcrafted Jewellery.

Most of my knowledge is self taught, which has it's advantages as well as a few pitfalls. I love creating new pieces, and often accept commissions from customers which ensure I am constantly researching new techniques to learn and master.

Regarding Covid19, I have reduced the number of guests I can have, due to the space in my workshop or you can book private sessions.

I looking forward to meeting and sharing my knowledge.

Well worth booking this course. I learnt so much and was allowed to put it into practice. I’ve come away with a beautiful sterling silver bangle that I will wear a lot.

I bought this experience for my daughter- in -laws birthday we had such a good time making our bangles Bret was very informative and talked us through every step of making our bracelet. Such a nice guy!! Will definitely be back if we return to Cornwall.

The bangle making with Brett was a great experience - we really enjoyed the session and came away with a beautiful bangle with a charm. The session took longer than expected due to being a larger group - I would factor this in if you were booking as a group or with others. I would highly recommend the workshop- a highlight of our holiday.

This experience was amazing Brett was a wonderful teacher and I have come away with the most beautiful bracelet and I couldn’t be happier!!! I planned my holiday around this course and I’m delighted that I did! I was very lucky to have 1-2-1 tuition but Brett can teach up to 6 and I know it would be a valuable experience for you if you are considering doing this class - don’t hesitate - book now!!
