Hi, my name is Maggie Bergman. I am a jewellery artist, working in PMC & traditional silver jewellery.
Silver Jewellery Classes
I teach silver jewellery classes at my studio in Nerang, on the northern end of the Gold Coast.
When Artclay Silver first came to Australia I was one of the first group of people to get certified as a teacher of this very exciting material.
My background in pottery & traditional silver jewellery classes, really made me appreciate the fantastic possibilities of PMC.
The speed of making a piece of 3D jewellery really appealed to me. I love to dream up a design and make it quickly before life interferes.
I like to mix other materials in my jewellery, combining PMC with sterling silver, copper, titanium, glass, plastics & resin.... the list goes on and the possibilities are endless!
In January 2007 I was invited to become an advisor to the Masters Registry. This is the most stimulating program I have ever been involved with. It resulted in exciting new directions for my work. In 2008 I attained my Reg. level I, one of the first 3 people in the world.
I am working toward the Masters Reg. Level II now, it is a very exciting program and I am enjoying the challenge.
For the last 6 years I have been passing on my skills, both in PMC & metalwork, to my students in Queensland & Victoria. The classes are project based and cater for beginners, taking them up to Intermediate and Advanced skill levels.
For a list of current workshops offered see the workshop page for all my classes. They are now held at Nerang, on the Northern end of the Gold Coast
