Fingerprint Jewellery Certification Workshops on the Gold Coast

Sometimes it’s just easier to learn with a qualified teacher, not only to see how things are done perfectly but also to get feedback on some of the things you might be doing wrong.

At my studio in Nerang (Qld) I am set up to teach you everything you could possibly want to know about all things to do with making Fingerprint & Keepsake jewellery.

Private workshops can be shared with a friend!
Lauren & Naomi of  ‘Em & Eve’ came together and learned all about making Fingerprint Jewellery and stamping on metal, check out their wonderful collection!

One day Basic Fingerprint Jewellery Certification Workshop

In a one day workshop you will learn all the basics of working with metal clay:

  • Basic technique for making a Heart pendant with a natural fingerprint, set with a sparkly stone and hand writing a name on the front
  • All the tips & tricks for making a Photopolymer plate (PPP) – much easier when you see it in person  than to read about!
    • You’ll be able to use the PPP technique for things like hand & foot prints, kids artwork, logos and much more
  • We’ll make a hand or footprint charm, these cuties are a favourite and are essential in any fingerprint jewellery collection
  • The best firing techniques, whether to use a kiln or a torch and important points to keep in mind when firing metal clay
  • Finishing techniques are a particular strong aspect of all my workshops, I think it makes no sense producing a beautiful design and then not knowing how to make it look fantastic! The finish of your pieces is what you’ll be judged on within 10 seconds of you showing it to someone!
  • And of course I will answer any questions that might be worrying you including where to buy tools & materials.
  • On completion of this class you will have attained Fingerprint Jewellery Certificate I

Cost for a one day workshop is $350.00 plus materials.

When you Contact Maggie for booking details, please mention if you are planning to take the one or the two day course.

2 Day Advanced Fingerprint Jewellery Certification Workshop

This workshop will take your skills to the next level and is therefore suitable for people wanting to start a Fingerprint Jewellery business.
In this class you will learn:

  • Everything from the One day workshop -> plus:
  • Basic soldering
  • Embedding silver wire loops into your Metal clay pieces – this looks great in pieces that need a very fine loop to hang from
  • Double-sided fingerprint pendant – with 2 fingerprints or a pretty texture on one side, making it reversible. This pendant requires a special technique to avoid distortion, a technique that can be used for many other pieces
  • Stamping letters on fired metal clay to make super cool jewellery that is very popular!
  • Upon completion of the projects you will receive the Advanced Fingerprint Jewellery Certificate II

Cost for the two day workshop is $695.00 plus materials.
