Course outline

Professional Stringing Techniques

Professional Stringing Techniques

Stringing on soft wires provides durability and speed to designers working with crystalline materials. Learn about different qualities of soft wire, when to use each, and how to design and create your first pieces of jewellery with a professional looking, lasting finish.
Stringing Pearls and Gems Incorporating Knots

Stringing Pearls and Gems Incorporating Knots

This technique is reserved for higher quality jewels. Learn established professional stringing techniques, when to use alternative stringing threads and the very unique finishing methods which apply to this excellent system. No burning or glue is involved, just a long lasting stronger finish for enjoyment of lasting jewellery.
Wirework Foundations

Wirework Foundations

This emphasizes accuracy, skill and speed which is an important tool in every fashion designer's arsenal. Learn to create a variety of designs and understand about wire hardness and tensile strength to choose the quality wires which will last longer and limit customers returning for repairs. Build the technique and confidence to ensure future works are made to high standards and learn unique styles and patterns suitable only for wirework designs.
Chain Maille Jewellery

Chain Maille Jewellery

The history of chain-maille and its numerous modern weaves and patterns are fun and add a creative dimension to the program culminating with a multi-layered fashionable chain-maille bracelet and a Bysantine bracelet. Incorporating maille components into stringing and wirework creations can add uniqueness and flair to more traditional design styles.
Creative Combination of Techniques

Creative Combination of Techniques

After mastering the techniques, it’s time to apply the skills you have learned to produce a unique creation that creatively combines each style. Plan your design strategy beforehand and check with your instructor if the creation can be completed within the time period, then challenge yourself to produce a top-quality jewellery project within the time allotted. This final project gives the school an opportunity to evaluate your work based on your ability to utilise the materials available and the combination of the techniques. More importantly, it gives you the confidence to produce infinite combinations of ready-to sell jewellery you will be proud to own, gift and even set you sail on your entrepreneurial voyage!!
