I’ve enjoyed working with silver clay immensely and Emine is very helpful and patient and great to chat with. I can certainly recommend her workshops which are now adapted to take account of Covid and take place in a light and pleasant space.
I’ve completed a series of workshops and made pendants, rings, earrings and charms with silver clay and sterling silver clay. Christmas presents are sorted! Jill W.

I had the good fortune to receive the gift of a place on the beginners course and attended with my daughter yesterday. Emine was a great teacher, offered advice and plenty of ideas. We had an excellent afternoon and came home with some unique pieces of jewellery we’d made ourselves. I was really inspired by the course and can’t recommend the experience enough. Jean.

We had a fantastic afternoon today. Me and my mum had a great day making some amazing jewellery. Emine was so welcoming and helpful and I’d highly recommend.

I attended the Beginner’s Silverclay Workshop. It was a fantastic class. Emine is a great teacher and because the classes are small (4 people) she has loads of time to help everyone when they need it. She has lots of advice and tips and talks you thorough everything step by step. I would defiantly recommend this course. I hope one day to take the intermediate course to learn more about Silver Clay. Thanks Emine

I bought a pair of Silverkupe earrings from Happy Planet Studio and Gallery in Whitley Bay in 2019. Loved them! Lost one of them on a trip to London. Felt bereft. Got in touch and asked to buy a replacement earring. Was told to hand in the lone earring and within days was given a shiny pair of earrings. I was gobsmacked by this level of service. Thank you for your customer service and for your beautiful works of art. I recommend you to anyone!

Date: 01/06/2019 – Workshop Review: As a novice to silver clay, I took the step of signing up for the beginner & intermediate course with Emine and was glad that I did. Emine is an excellent teacher and has plenty of patience to enable a newbie to get the most out of the classes and experience the alchemy of turning clay into metal. I highly recommend giving the classes a try. Graham.

I did a morning’s beginner’s class with Emine at Gallery 45 in Felton and I cannot recommend it highly enough. She guided us carefully through the process and smiled when we all ooohhh’ed and aaahhh’ed at the alchemy of the process. I was extremely pleased with the pieces I created and am very keen to have another go. Thanks Emine – it was a great morning .

Loved the workshop at Gallery 45, Emine is a lovely teacher – very relaxed and “can-do”, nothing’s a problem. Great fun and the switch from clay to silver is like magic!

Had a brilliant silver clay jewellery workshop at my home to celebrate my birthday with the girls. I made 2 pieces, a pendant and scarf ring which surprisingly turned out very well. The silver clay process is amazing to view – putty turns to silver! Emine is a great teacher and we all had so much fun making our creations. We are going to do another workshop before Christmas, making copper jewellery this time. Looking forward to it.

I came across Emine’s jewellery at an art exhibition in Jesmond and noticed a lovely silver cuff bracelet. Unfortunately, it was too big so Emine offered to custom make one to my size.
A fortnight later she had created and delivered to my door a gorgeous, weighty silver bracelet which is a perfect fit – exactly as I had imagined.
Emine was very professional and kept me updated. Her designs are beautiful and now that I’ve discovered her work, I’ll be revisiting the website for presents. Thanks again.

I received some lovely earrings for Christmas which I loved wearing, but I sadly lost one while on holiday 😕
However I emailed Emine immediately as I had the details on the gift box.
I am pleased to say Emine made a new earring , after I posted the remaining earring, which she used as the pattern to endure a similar thickness and positioning of the detail. A week later I am now happily wearing these again.
I am so happy and with the truly fantastic response and action from Emine.
I would recommend you to view and buy this quality jewellery. I do advise you to be careful not to lose any of these though.”

I bought the ‘Cityscape’ pendant from Silverkupe. I tired and liked many of the pendants and wanted them all but I settled with the ‘Cityscape’ this time around. It is an usual and unique design. I love it and I shall treat myself again soon“.

If you haven’t discovered Mine’s jewellery then you’re missing out. She has a great selection of very beautiful and unique pieces. The problem is which to buy!

“When I saw Silverkupe’s beautiful designs at a market before Christmas I knew the annual worry of what to buy my Mother in Law for her gift was not going to be an issue. With Christmas, her birthday and Mother’s Day in quick succession it can be tricky to find something different.
I bought her a small copper heart necklace and matching earrings, very unique and a perfect gift. She was wearing them last week so I know she likes them . Thank you Emine”.

“I work as an artist and feel fortunate to have met Emine at the beginning of her jewellery journey as I have watched her progress and grow through her work. I am very happy to stock her work at my studio gallery because it is of good quality and she is very reliable when and offers great service I need stock or a customer requests a commission”.

“I bought ‘Crackle’ for my wife as it looked such a clever and tasteful fusion of copper and silver. It was a success, thanks Emine! Your work is really creative. It goes beyond the ‘usual’ without being over the top. I really love the balance you put in these objects. Not just craft, but good design too! Congratulations”.

“I have bought several pieces of jewellery from Silverkupe and I feel that every time I have bought a piece of unique art and yet the price is no more than what I would pay on the high street. I have loved every purchase and was sad to give some away as gifts.
I know that I will be a customer again very soon.”

“It was lovely to meet you today at the Grainger Market, I am the lady who bought the resin earrings which I love, they reflect every colour in them so I can wear them with everything, really pleased I bought them. Hope to see you next year at a market, will check your Events page, would love a silver and copper pair next time.”

“Love love your art jewellery. I’ll have to commission a piece. I don’t wear drops because my holes are elongated. I prefer clip ons with large front pieces to cover all three holes. I’ll send you a picture. And picky me, I like fairly large earrings. I desperately want a piece of yours because YOU make them. I’ll buy your ready made ones for friends. I think they’re beautiful.
