Whether you’re talking about clear concise explanations, learning in a logical order or close-up videography where we never accidentally go off camera – we’ve got you covered!
Disclaimer: we do sometimes go off camera – but that footage never makes the cut. That is how much we care about making sure YOU GET IT!
But you know, it’s not just about classes, there’s so much more waiting for you over at the Metalsmith Academy to help you become a confident, ass kicking jeweller……
Marriage of metal rings
Place small solder balls on the inside of the ring band, and heat from below to pull the solder into the join. This helps to avoid having excess clean up to do on the outside of the ring band.
When soldering smaller parts to larger components, heat the metal proportionately. When soldering studs to a large hoop such as this, the flame is focused on the stud for less than a second.
These images aren’t from our class videos, they’re from the 40 to 80 page full-colour instructional guides that go along with every class. Our classes are created to ensure no matter how you learn best, we’ve got you covered!
This one’s just a short excerpt from our online class – which comes with complete instructions on how to use these amazing tools – including for fancy shaped bezels!
Creating U-shaped prongs which hold themselves in place for soldering can make prong setting a lot simpler. And soldering these from the back of the setting ensures the minimum amount of clean up after soldering is required. As always though, this isn’t the only way to solder prongs in place, and we’ve got you covered with a variety of techniques over at the Metalsmith Academy.
We go into tonnes of detail on flush setting in our online class, however one thing that a lot of students struggle with is due to the fact they’re using a needle burnisher that is too large – seriously, size matters! Of course, needle burnishers aren’t the only way to flush set stones – and we’ll show you a variety of methods over at the Metalsmith Academy.
Seriously, we’re obsessed with tips and tricks!! And there’s plenty more where these came from.
Lucy Walker Metalsmith Academy is the most amazing, inspirational and brilliant learning experience I have ever known.

One person commented on Instagram, ‘Lucy’s classes are awesome’, and they absolutely are! I intend to be a member for quite some time! Congratulations Lucy and your team, you are amazing.
