Through the Jewellery Making Diploma Course, you’ll become familiar with various types of handmade jewellery, the history and development of jewellery making around the world, and how to get started - including a look at health and safety and the equipment and tools you’ll need.
The bulk of the course guides you through a wide range of jewellery making techniques. These include wire wrapping, beading, metalsmithing and silversmithing, stone setting in silver, working with metal clay, wax carving, enamelling, handstamping, and engraving. Most of the techniques covered also include a step-by-step project for you to complete, or at least follow, in order to gain a better understanding of the techniques used.
Once you have the techniques down, the course takes you further by presenting four projects for you to follow. With beginner, intermediate and expert levels, there is a project that’ll suit your confidence level - you can even start with the easiest and work your way up to the more advanced pieces. These projects are: silver statement necklace, metal stamped necklace, wire wrapped bead bracelet, and silver cabochon ring.
The course also provides an introduction on how to go about setting up and marketing a business to sell your pieces.
By studying this course, you will:
- Become familiar with various types of handmade jewellery
