活動內容

I will welcome you in my home based studio at the beach side suburb North New Brighton.
This is a very exclusive, hands on experience. Only 2 people at the most in this class so you’ll have lots of one to one teaching.
While I show you around the studio I will point out any health and safety tips to help create a safe environment for all.

This workshop is a great introduction to Silversmithing. Your project will be according to your level.

Before you arrive I will message you to hear whether you have a specific project in mind or whether you are open to see what can happen.

Its up to you to make a ring, a pendant, a small link bracelet or earrings.
You can bring and recycle old broken pieces of jewellery and turn them into new wearable keepsakes
You can make use of letters to stamp personalised messages into your work.

If you have brought any broken or old jewellery with you I will assess whether it is Silver or Gold and will suit your project.
The first 5 grams of Silver for your project is included in the price.

The hands-on fun part is fire and flames and forging (hammering) the metal.
Some of the processes are cleaning the work by hand like filing, sanding and polishing. The final end result is totally up to what ever look you like.

Please contact me for any other times and or days available im happy to change to suit your itinerary
Other things to note
You dont need any previous knowledge to do this workshop.
Please bring some extra cash in case you need to buy more Silver for your project.

I am an experienced Silversmith with more than 10 years of experience, i’m also successfully selling my jewellery at various galleries throughout NZ and I am tutoring at a local college.
I love combining our precious Jade with Sterling Silver and have developed quite a unique method of creating one-off contemporary jewellery pieces.
I enjoy working towards exhibitions, supplying artwork to galleries and teaching, these all seem to be the right balance for me.
I gained my teaching degree 22 years ago and have taught in The Netherlands and New Zealand for many different Colleges and other educational organisations ever since.
It is such a thrill to help people create a special piece from scratch and see ideas coming to life.

A very enjoyable experience even though I could a little before. I learned that there are several ways to work with silver. I got good guidance and was able to make a bracelet at the time we had together. I am so happy for my new bracelet that I will use it often. THANK YOU Jacqueline!

My mom and I took this class while on holiday and it was such a wonderful way to spend the morning! Jax is an absolute delight and such a cool person and we felt like we left having truly learned so much with evidence to show! She taught us how to melt down silver and from scraps and then make a ring for our very own hand with personal touches. She did a great job of taking us through each step, had the perfect balance between guidance and letting us run on our own, and was so patient and kind throughout the whole experience. She even brought out coffee and treats for us :) I would recommend this class to anyone, no doubt! Absolutely worth every penny.

Jacqueline’s experience was a real treat for my 10year old son and I. She took great care in explaining the process of silver working. It was a clean, safe and practical space to learn with a guided approach to the craft. We made a ring and pair of earrings. I highly recommend this experience.

This was a great experience, I got to create my own silver ingot and turn it into a beautiful piece of jewelry. Jacqueline was very warm and welcoming, and I learned a lot from her.
