Welded Bracelet FAQs
Do I need to make an appointment?
Yes - you can check appointment availability on the Welded Bracelet booking page here.
How much do the bracelets cost?
Our chains range from £80 to £110, including fitting.
What sort of chains do you have?
We have a selection of chains in 9ct yellow, 9ct white and 9ct rose gold for you to choose from during your appointment.
Do you do welded infinity bracelets in silver?
No, we don't. Silver doesn't have the longevity of gold, and can sometimes tarnish in highly chlorinated pools or jacuzzi's, so we only use gold for our bracelets. If you love the white metal look we do have 9ct white gold bracelets!
What if I need to remove the bracelet?
If you need to remove the bracelet (for an MRI scan for example) the chain can simply be carefully removed with scissors. The bracelets are fine going through airport security as they are so delicate! If you do need to remove your bracelet and would like it reattached we can re-weld it back on at a later date for you.
Does it hurt at all?
No, not one bit! We only weld the bracelet - not you!
Is there a minimum age to have a welded infinity bracelet fitted?
We recommend a minimum age of 16.
Do you do anklets?
No, we only do bracelets.
Class & Course FAQs
Do I need to have any jewellery making experience?
No jewellery making experience is necessary, with the exception of our Improvers Course. Rob is an excellent, patient teacher with over 45 years of experience, and will guide you through every step of making your own beautiful silver jewellery.
Are materials included in the cost?
An allocation of silver is allowed within the cost of the class. Extra materials can be purchased on the day, although this is not often needed unless you have something larger/heavier in mind that might require more metal.
How many people per class?
The maximum class size is four students, ensuring plenty of personal tuition for every attendee.
How long are the classes?
Most of our jewellery making classes last 3 hours, with the exception of the stacking ring class, which is 4 hours. Each of the six class sessions in the Beginners and Improvers courses last 2.5 hours each.
What time should I arrive for my class?
All courses are preceded by a health and safety introduction, so please arrive 10 minutes early for your class.
What do I need to wear for the class?
For safety reasons we ask that students wear long sleeved tops, long trousers and closed toe shoes, with long hair tied back.
How long are the courses?
Both the Beginners Course and Improvers Course run for six weeks for each group.
Which course is right for me?
The Beginners Course is an excellent introduction to designing and making your own silver jewellery. No previous experience is necessary as Rob, our expert jeweller, will guide you all the way. On this course you will learn new skills such as: metal forming, filing, annealing, soldering, piercing, texturing and finishing.
The Improvers Course is an excellent way to build on the skills taught on the Beginners Course, allowing students to really strengthen their existing skills whilst learning additional techniques such as: advanced soldering techniques, doming, stone setting, rolling metals, texturing and chain making.
