This was a wonderful afternoon for both my girlfriend and (surprisingly) me too.
This is the first time we've attempted to create something out of silver, and we were taken aback by the quality of what we managed to produce with the help of Sunarta and his colleague.
The place is a little hard to find, but luckily our driver knew the way.
Once there, we were given a warm welcome, a cup of tea, and several booklets full of ideas for jewellery. This helped get the creative juices flowing allowing us to sketch some ideas on to paper. Once we'd chosen what to produce, the sketch was placed on to sheet silver and, following a demonstration, we cut out our designs. After which they were polished and finished up to a high quality pendant. Other options involved stamping, oxidisation and a number of other skills depending on what you decide to make.
It was a great experience with some lovely jewellery to take home as a momento.
Be aware that the price of the item will depend somewhat on the amount of silver you use! Sunarta is very upfront about this from the off based on your design, but take some extra cash in case you decide to make something heavier or larger than the included 10grams. The time is also dependent on the complexity of what you make! 2 hrs is fine for something simple, but more complex things will take longer unless you're a wizz at it!
