Lucie Gledhill is running this class as a fundraiser for a new ambitious project. All profits from this class will go towards making new work for Collect Open, part of the Collect International Fair for Modern Craft and Design in February 2020 at Somerset House, London. This class will only be available for a limited time.

The project is a collaboration called SWAP to learn more please click on this link.

During this class you will learn how to make curb chain for a ring. You will use silver wire to bend around a tool to make a coil. You will cut down the coil to make jumprings. You will solder together the rings to make a chain. Finally you will twist the chain to make the curb shape. You can make a chain any size or weight to fit your finger.

Materials are included in the cost of the class. The class will run from 11am - 5pm with a break for lunch.

Did you know?

Curb chain is traditionally a handmade chain. It is often associated with the Victorians because it was used for a gentlemans fob chain. Curb chain is also used underneath a horses chin to keep the bit in place so the work curb has come to mean restraint and control. Lucie Gledhill is your teacher for this class and has based much of her carreer as a jeweller on this style of chain.
