Loved making this used every bit of rolled silver bangle earings pendant and lastly bezel pendent thank you krista and all tutors for me to achieve the good end result
Hope u are better soon
Solder inlay!
Who knew there was such a thing as copper solder? Well I saw a lovely piece made by one of Workshop 925 learners using copper solder on sterling silver and just had to give it a go.
I’ve only ever done this process with silver solder on copper but being able to achieve the same results in silver is excellent!
The copper solder was from a company called fire and stone.
A few notes for anyone giving it a go:
- It’s very hard to cut so definitely roll or hammer it so it’s flat and I’d probably cut it inside a sealy bag or plastic tub and wear goggles as they bits fly everywhere
- I wouldn’t solder my shape before rolling it into the silver as it was very soft and didn’t quite make as good an impression as I would have liked (I would just stick the shape to a piece of paper to roll and burr out any gaps in the silver)
- It’s melting temperature is quite low but do not overheat and I even left some lumps of solder still raised and I melted
- You May need to do more than two layers of soldering to fill the rolled lines
- Curve your piece before filing

Happy testing!

Thank u krista and kirsten guess what Catherine has it said it was elegant xx
Happy Christmas to all thank you so much for all your help loved trying to achieve
So today we’ve been down to Berkshire to collect our new hand built 20ton hydraulic press.

Had a great day at Krista Thomson Design's hydraulic press forming class at Workshop 925 with Sue Chapman Jewellery. We got to play with pancake dies to cut out shapes quickly, bangle forming dies like the one in the video and silhouette dies to make hollow forms. Lots of techniques to practice with when our hydraulic presses arrive!
Went to say hi to Charlotte from & Dash today at The Maltings festival of Crafts today. Love her work. And so nice to see her after missing my Monday night ladies since March. ♥️

We have 2 Gemmology courses this Autumn with the fantastic Stuart Pool from Nineteen 48. If you work with gemstones, this is an absolute MUST. Customers are more than ever aware of the ethics of the products they purchase and there is a drive towards more ethical jewellery practices within the industry. These two courses are both introductions to gemmology for those who work with gemstones but do not know about grading, factors which might affect the price of a stone, gemstone properties, gem identification, mining and traceability as well as much more. You will also receive a gemstone reference book RRP £10 included in the price of your course.

Some of the gorgeous work from Krista's term time classes this summer ☀️ ❤️

Photos from Workshop 925's post 05/09/2022

This absolute masterpiece is by Rhian Browning, one of Krista's amazing students.

Rhian created this HIR Beach Sprints Trophy (it is the first if its kind) just before summer during her term time classes.

It is handcrafted from 16 pieces of recycled silver which have been textured and riveted. These beutiful hammered textures represent the rippled surface of the sea.

Rhian has also created 8 beautiful bezel settings on the top edge of the design with different sea glass colours which were carefully chosen to represent the racing colours of the four teams.

The base is created from gorgeous Welsh drift wood. It's fair to say this is a truly special piece to have come to life at Workshop 925. Well done to Rhian a true achievement, its absolutely stunning and so special.

The trophy is hallmarked with the platinum jubilee mark.

Our Story

Workshop 925 launched in January 2019 and is based at The Mayford Centre which is nestled between Guildford and Woking in Surrey.

The workshop was launched by Kirsten Hendrich after several years teaching within adult education facilities, alongside running her own jewellery brand Kirsten Hendrich Jewellery.

Kirsten often felt frustrated at large class sizes, the lack of specialist equipment and solid workbenches to allow students to really blossom. So, she began her vision which was to create the perfect learning environment for jewellers of all levels to come and learn new skills using professional equipment, providing the best chance possible for students to learn the technical and business skills of the trade within small class sizes enabling plenty of one to one tutor support to aid effective learning.

Workshop 925 is also home to an amazing team of tutors who share Kirsten’s passion for jewellery making, craft and all things handmade. Together they bring you their knowledge, tips and enthusiasm for the industry in the classes they teach and in the workshop environment.
