Description

Advanced Memorial Jewellery Course, for new and experienced artists alike and anyone wanting to learn new ideas and techniques. On completion of this course you will receive a Memorial Jewellery Diploma certificate you can download and print, plus a physical copy will be mailed out to you signed in person by Nikki Kamminga with a wax seal of authenticity.

This course will give you an excellent head-start for launching your own business. You’ll learn the main techniques for working with cremation ashes, locks of hair and fur. Learn the difference between using glass and different kinds of resin, adding other elements like sentimental fabric, umbilical cord and placenta, birthstones and sparkles. The modules cover direct pours, making stones, spheres and beads, then setting each kind of jewellery in metal. We teach you basic silversmithing and mould making, selling DIY kits, and how to sell and market your jewellery. The course also covers how to set up a business, work from home or a studio and multitasking. At the end of the course after completing the course work you should be ready to begin your journey making and selling memorial and keepsake jewellery and know how to access suppliers and resources, as well as joining our Facebook Group where the community will help you.

I can’t promise you a successful business, you will need to put time and effort into making this work but we’re here for you every step of the way. Please fill in the contact form below if you have any questions about the course or click Contact Us to find our social media and email address.
