Earrings are the most popular type of jewellery, especially amongst ladies. They can be delicate, expressive, small or large.

This short course will introduce students to the production of various types of earring hooks. Each student will learn the basics of silversmithing, such as saw piercing, drilling and polishing. Everyone will be encouraged to make a pair of silver drop earrings using the techniques mentioned above.
