CSSJ's extended three-day Sea Glass Summer School combines all of the techniques usually covered in our varied weekend workshops to create a comprehensive introduction to making jewellery from found objects. If you love the thrill of collecting sea glass and you’ve got a collection of beach finds that you’d like to make into precious keepsakes then this is the perfect course for you! You don’t need any previous experience to come along and start making silver jewellery using sea glass. And if you don’t have your own collection of sea glass, worry not, we have a selection for you to choose from!

You will start at the very beginning, working your way through basic jewellery techniques such as sawing, drilling, filing and soldering. Your expert tutor will give step-by-step demonstrations and be on hand to guide you through each process. You will explore textures and patterns, create a base that fits your chosen piece of glass, and frame it using a simple but effective bezel setting, sometimes known as a rub-over setting. As well as learning how to set your sea glass using a bezel setting, we’ll cover techniques for making rings, drilling sea glass and saw piercing silver to create charms, and adding findings to create pendants and earrings. You’ll leave at the end of the course with your completed collection of personalised sea glass jewellery.
