We hunted high and low to find this incredible dead blow mallet. It’s made in Germany and comes highly recommended. If you only ever own one mallet, make this the one. It’s worth every cent.
These mallets are great for moving metal without marring (marking) it, which reduces the time needed to finish your piece afterwards. We use mallets in the studio to flatten, shape, forge, form and bend metal when making rings, earrings, pendants and bangles. This is an essential tool for your jewellers tool kit.
This round solder wire is 1mm in diameter. It's ideal for joining fine silver (999) and sterling silver (925) pieces.
You can cut the wire to any size you need using these German-made Straight Shears or these German-made flush cutters.
This silver solder wire is available Hard, Medium and Easy. The price listed is per 50cm Silver solder wire is also available in a pack that includes Hard, Medium and Easy. This solder is also available in a 0.5mm round silver wire and Sterling Silver Solder Sheet Pack that includes one gram of Easy, Medium and Hard Solder in a sheet rather than wire.
This jewellery tool kit takes the guesswork out choosing tools. It includes the tools you really need to start making your own jewellery. I made lots of mistakes when I first started buying jewellery tools for my studio and I want to make sure you don't fall into the same trap. I sold thousands of dollars of tools I never used, but had bought because I was told I needed them.
Unlike other beginners kits on the market, this kit is jam-packed with high-quality jewellery making tools that you will actually use. And buying them as a kit saves you money as well. This is without a doubt the best quality jewellers starter kit on the market.
This kit purchased with the Essential Soldering Tool Kit will provide many of the important tools you need for your studio.
The Jewellers Stone Setting Tool Kit gives you those additional tools you need to start setting.
Intensive Beginners Jewellery Short Course If you're time-poor like me, then this intensive beginners jewellery making short- course is for you. It's held over two-full-days during the week or on a weekend. You’ll work at your own pace while learning the fundamentals of jewellery making.
So rather than attending classes week-after-week, you'll learn it all in two days. No previous experience is necessary. This is the only Intensive Beginners Jewellery Short Course in of its type in Australia. We regularly have students from across Australia and overseas attending this one-of-a-kind class.
A $200 deposit is required to secure your place. The balance of $1150 is payable at least week before the workshop. You can pre-pay your balance in instalments. Please email Bec to arrange. You can pay the balance at any time, although a payment link will be emailed to you two weeks before the workshop.
You can see some of the pieces of jewellery made by students in previous courses. This course doesn't cover lost wax, sand casting or stone setting. These are offered as separate workshops.
If you'd like to set up a studio when you get home, the Premium Jewellery Tool Starter Kit contains the main tools you need. You can also add an Essential Soldering Kit, which will give you the pieces you need to start soldering.

These Matt wooden ring mandrels have been designed for working with hard and soft waxes. It supports and holds your wax, so you can use both hands for working on your piece.
This is the mandrel we use in the Pod Studio during our Lost Wax Silver Ring Workshops. This product is also available as part of the Ultimate Lost Wax Jewellery Tool Kit and the Ultimate Lost Wax Jewellery Tool Kit (minus tools from the Premium Kit). This mandrel can also be used with the Matt wax gun.
Features Made from hardwood, the smooth highly polished surface is perfect for stone setting in wax, or any application where you need to be able to keep your piece in place without needing to hold it with your hands.
The wooden mandrel turns 360° allowing you to work on the whole outside of the ring. You can stop the mandrel from moving by placing some soft wax of Blu Tack between the mandrel and the metal stand.

We are actively working with our manufacturers to help reduce the plastic packaging used in the products we buy. We’re trying our hardest to reduce, remove or reuse plastic.
