What you'll do

Design and create your own silver pendant with the help of Charlotte Anne Duckworth, the Bristol silversmith otherwise known as The Silver Duck. Charlotte has been teaching and hosting workshops since 2013.

You'll make your pendant from start to finish in this private experience, designing and creating shapes using a piercing saw to cut out your design and finishing. You'll have the option to apply texture using hammers and stamps and will also get to try techniques like doming and forming to make 3D forms. In the process you'll discover how to solder on jump rings - and you're more than welcome to come along with your own design ideas.

At the end of your experience you'll finish with a bespoke, handmade pendant, which Charlotte will have a silver chain for you to wear it from.

If you are interested in a two-person workshop, please do get in touch and Charlotte can arrange this for you.

About The Silver Duck

For Charlotte, it all started when she was given a wire jewellery making kit as a gift. She was already interested in art and design but after creating those jewellery pieces she decided to study for her degree in silversmithing, metalwork and jewellery. Charlotte now makes her work out of her Old Market Manor studio, a space she shares with other creatives from jewellery makers to woodworkers. She's passionate about sharing her craft and giving people a glimpse of the techniques and the time it takes to work with silver. Charlotte’s aim with all her experiences is to allow people to be creative, have fun and go away with a piece they’ll be proud of.

What people are saying

Charlotte was super friendly, she made a coffee when I arrived, we got to know each other and then I had an amazing 3 and a half hours designing pendant shapes, creating textures, cutting silver, sanding, shaping and soldering to create a lovely piece of jewelry. Would very much recommend 👌

Charlotte at The Silver Duck was a great teacher and good fun to be with. She allowed us to choose our own designs but advised us what would be achievable realistically in the time we had available. My friend and I both made completely different pendants learning lots of varied techniques. We were very happy with the end results, our pendants are beautiful and unique. Thank you Charlotte!
