Learn how to create your own saw pierced silver pendant inspired by Picts/Stone Carvings in this 5 hour workshop with Aberdeen based Silversmith Megan Falconer. In this workshop, you will be shown how to saw pierce, file, texture, solder and make fixings for your own handmade pendant. Using a jewellers piercing saw, detail will be cut out of sheets of silver in order to create a design of your choice, whether you choose to be inspired by Pict stone carvings or create your own contemporary take on the vast inspiration. Reference images will be provided and examples will be shown during the workshop.
You will leave the workshop with your own handmade pendant, on your choice of chain length. This workshop is suitable for complete beginners, however a good level of hand eye coordination/hand dexterity is helpful due to the hand tools used.
Please also bring glasses if you need them for close up work, as the skills will require focusing on small areas.
