Workshop Review

“I loved the workshop & I have worn my necklace ever since xx”  Joanne

“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”. Gillian
