Setting Up a Jewellery Studio

What do I need to get started making jewelry?

That is not an easy question to answer.  There are so many variables and it all depends on exactly what it is that you want to make.  If you’re going to focus on carving wax and casting jewellery, or even utilising computer aided design, then setting up a jewellery workshop for that, will look entirely different to a workshop optimised for entirely hand made (or fabricated) jewellery.

My suggestion, which I know all you toolaholics out there will ignore (I know because I am one of them), is to start small.  Learn to master the tools you have one at a time.  Seriously this will be a massive benefit in the long run and it will also give you the time necessary to decide where you want your jewellery making journey to take you.  

You’ll find product codes for everything mentioned in the video, and many more tools in the downloadable handout below. In this video I’ll take you quickly through the basics of what I think would be a great jewellery workshop start up kit.

Can I have a list please?

Sure you can! We made a huge 18 page downloadable handout complete with product codes and pictures of all my favourite tools!  Sign up below to download it now.

  1. Love your tips and spirit of sharing your knowledge. Can’t wait to get to the point I can take (and follow) a class of yours.!

  2. What different areas would you set up in your studio as in soldering area, forming area, etc and what tools would be located at each “station”. Curious to know how others have set up their studios.
    Love your classes!
    Thanks

    Other than jewelers bench, what furniture do I need for new personal jewelry studio? I don’t know where to set up my soldering station. Should I get a a wood or metal table?
