Make your own enamel beads then create beautiful jewellery from them under the expert guidance of Sharon Ford, leading enameller and restorer in enamels and gilding. Enamelling involves the fusion of jeweller’s quality vitreous enamel with copper and silver through firing. When heat is applied, the enamels soften and flow, and the varying presence of different components creates a spectacular range of visual effects so that every bead created is unique. Experiment with different effects and colours for exciting necklace and earrings, or an unusual pendant. Thread your beads professionally, using a variety of findings. Inspirational and fun for both existing beaders and newbies. All materials are supplied at cost from the tutor.
