Pendant Making workshop

Saturday 10 August 2024




Sat 10 August, 10:30-16:00


159 17th Avenue, Tauranga South

Learn the old school ways of making a sterling silver pendant! Join Alexandra Mostyn for a fun filled day of learning and creating with like-minded artists. You will be guided by Alexandra, a silversmith and jewellery designer, who has been teaching workshops here at the Incubator since 2016.

Learn how to saw your metal, anneal it to then add a bail or hook or loop. Then, learn to solder it all together, adding a bezel for your stone to sit in. Learn to set a stone and then polish your gorgeous new pendant!

All precious metal is supplied and you will receive a cabochon stone ranging from 4mm to 10mm in size. All tools are provided, as are safety goggles, aprons and earmuffs. Extra stones and bezel cups can be purchased on the day. Tea, instant coffee and biscuits are supplied during workshop.

Participants must bring a chain, string or leather lace to thread their pendant onto and an idea of their design. As well as, a packed lunch and water. Long hair must be tied back and closed shoes worn.

This could be a new hobby for you or a new career. It could be a day of jewellery making for yourself or for a loved one. Either way, this workshop will ensure you have a fun day, make new friends, and leave with a beautiful handmade piece you will want to show off to everyone, saying, "Oh, thank you! You like my pendant? I MADE THIS!"

Each workshop has a "Winner of the Day" for the best pendant. Winner will receive a $50 Alexandra Mostyn Jewellery gift voucher and for fun, a little bag of Haribo Gummy Bears! The stakes are high!
