You have now mastered the art of working with silver clay during New Metals Technology I & II, now JDMIS gives you the the opportunity to expand your creative horizons!
Working with silver is fun and easy - but now, you will discover advanced techniques using Silver metal clay and other materials that will challenge you and provide new design possibilities.
This is the third in a series of our improved 30 hour programmes that includes more projects and materials to ensure you build the confidence to create professional level jewellery in more than just fine silver.
With experience comes the confidence to work with better quality materials. Master the combination of 22 karat gold into your designs, as well as how to fuse gold-leaf to silver designs to achieve an opulent look without the cost of solid gold. As well as working with the finest materials, mastery of metal clays requires expertise in creating moulds and patterns to produce consistent lines of precious metal jewellery. This programme consists of 6 directed projects and 1 final project and assessment over five days.
