Saw Piercing Workshop – Create your own Silver/Brass Leaf Earrings!
May 24 @ 12:00 pm - 4:00 pm
In this jewellery making workshop you can learn how to use a jeweller’s saw to cut out shapes from sheet metal (either brass or silver depending on your preference) to create a pair of earrings from scratch. 5 different leaf silhouette designs will be provided which cater to all skill levels. Whether you’ve never picked up a saw frame before or you’d like to take your technique to the next level this workshop has you covered!
All required tools will be provided but if you have your own favourite saw frame and pliers feel free to bring them along! Material costs which include brass sheet, silver sheet and wire, as well as sawblades and sandpaper are included in your ticket price.
Meet your tutor
Clare Davidson graduated from Curtin University of Technology with a Bachelor of Arts – Jewellery Design in 2008 where she discovered she loved making jewellery even more than she loved wearing it. In her final year at University Skadi Jewellery Design was born. Using silver, brass and leather Clare loves to create works of art which appear as delicate as lace with the strength of metal.
Almost every day from her first day of university over 14 years ago until now, Clare has been hand piercing intricate designs and takes great joy in passing on her thousands of hours of experience to help inspire other people. Very few people realise that when done correctly, saw piercing can be a form of meditation and Clare believes that’s a message worth spreading!
