Marilyn Monroe once said: ‘Diamonds are a girl’s best friend’. But it is not just diamonds that we desire for centuries. Jewellery in general has always been captivating. We decorate ourselves with necklaces, earrings, rings and bracelets.

In the jewellery course, you learn to make your own jewellery and work on your own ideas/designs for jewellery. The course starts with designing a jewel. Then you will choose a material and you learn how to saw, file, sand and solder. Furthemore, you will learn how to cast jewellery.
