Refurbishing jewellery is a fun, short, introductory course to transform broken or unwanted heirlooms (Sterling Silver or Gold metals only) into new wearable jewellery or small objects.
Basic processes include: designing, melting the metal, forming, soldering and polishing the artwork.
Bring broken and or unwanted silver or gold pieces, deconstruct and meltdown the metal (only silver or gold items) and reconstruct into a new desired form. Transform your heirlooms into wearable contemporary jewellery or small objects.
Jewellery which is stored away in a drawer can be used to make new meaningful pieces to be worn and enjoyed again.
