Using the drill is a technique on its own and if used right there are many different applications that can be done with the drill, from texturing to shaping metal.
NOTE: the hand drill is dangerous if not use right and is not a toy…
5. Learning to use the hand roller
The roller is an important part of jewelry manufacture ,not only is it used to shape metal once has been melted but can also be used for texturing technique.Using the roller you will be learning to melt metal and then roll it to various thickness’s .

I will allow you to work and learn at you own pace, learning from my 20 years’ experience in manufacturing jewelry giving you the ability to one day become your own master a manufacturing jewelry .
Suggested 3 month course to learn what I term as a basic start.
If you choose we can continue beyond the 3 months to do more advance skills from making settings for stone using tubes and eventually making claw settings. Once you have mastered making a setting (which is not so easy as one needs to be able to understand how a stone will be set into the setting ) we will move on to incorporating those settings into rings, pendants, earrings, bracelets and so forth.
Lessons will be once a week for 4 hours at 320NIS per lesson.
Payment is monthly at the start of the month ,the length of the course will be determined by you, how fast or slow you learn, please do not feel you need to rush through to complete it is recommended you do minimum of 3 months to LEARN THE BASIC.I am rather strict and will not allow you to move forward until we are both satisfied you are ready to move forward.
