The following topics will be covered:

  • How creating with precious metals differs from creating with base metal;
  • What are the differences between different types of silver;
  • Why choose precious metals over base metals and the pros and cons of each;
  • Creating wrapped loops from wire and ready-made headpins;
  • Creating your own balled headpins using precious metal wire;
  • Creating your own headpins using wire;
  • Creating your own ear wires and ear hoops using precious metal wire;
  • Different crystals available and properties/pros/cons of each;
  • Tools to use to make creating jewellery much easier;
