When you have selected your quantity select the Add to Cart button and then click on View My Cart option to add a message in the Special Instructions box.  Let me know the name of the person hosting the workshop and the date of the workshop so I can keep track. 

You will get to design and make a sterling silver necklace based on the theme of circles.  Trying out a mixture of textures with various hammers and mark making tools, learning how to cut and how to solder, and finishing up with a necklace for you to keep.

I bring the workshop to you and take you through each step of designing and making your own piece of jewellery in your own home, all you need is a sturdy table you can all sit round and I can clamp bench pegs too (see photo's), a separate table or worktop for the soldering station, and good lighting.  I'll bring the tools, the metal and the know how.

Group booking, minimum of 2 and maximum of 6 people, £65 per person.

This workshop takes about 3.5 hours. Some groups take a little longer and some finish quicker, it all depends on the varied designs, different abilities and amount of chatting....which I'd naturally encourage, it's more fun when you share stories whilst you work!

Covering Northamptonshire, Leicestershire, Rutland, and parts of the surrounding counties.  Message me here, on Facebook or on Instagram if you are unsure if you're within my area or just want to ask a question regarding workshops.

I'll arrive half an hour beforehand to set up.


Payment is taken in full at time of booking.  Whether a group booking or an individual booking £20 per persons payment is a non refundable deposit if you cancel your workshop, but I may be able to transfer it to a new date in you contact me to rebook at time of cancelling.  If I cancel a workshop you will be refunded in full.  Any dropouts on a group booking still loose the deposit but you're welcome to fill that place with a new person, in which case the deposit will not be lost but any changes like that (and payments to do with changes) are sorted out by yourselves without my involvement.  If you cancel a workshop or individual place on a group booking less than 10 days before then no refund will be issued, but if you rebook at the time of cancellation I may be able to transfer your payment.


The Perfect Treat

⭐ Your jewellery will come in a box or cotton pouch, with a jewellery care card and a polishing cloth, where availability allows, making the perfect gift to give or treat to yourself.


🌿 Silver I use recycled sterling silver in all my pieces.

🌿 Copper Some of my designs include copper, sometimes I leave it heat coloured and sometimes I shine it up.  I will coat the copper in clear metal lacquer or wax to slow down oxidisation.

🌿 Semi precious stones I buy my stones from a couple of selected sources who ethically source their stones.

Making and Posting

📦 I do try to keep most things in stock so you don't have to wait too long for your new jewellery. I aim to have your jewellery made, polished, packaged and at the post office in 5 working days.

📦 Each item is handmade by myself so when demand is high or if the item is in a specific size, like rings, or requires hallmarking, like bangles, then please allow 2 weeks. Message me if you are curious about a lead time before ordering.

Care Instructions

🧡 Store in a box when you're not wearing it to minimise surface tarnish.

🧡 Polish silver with a microfibre cloth to remove tarnish from the surface.

💛 Apply creams and perfume and allow to absorb before putting on your jewellery.  If it gets onto your jewellery wash in mild soapy water and dry thoroughly.

💚 Remove your jewellery before bathing or swimming, and especially in hot tubs.

💙 Take extra care when cleaning around stones.

💜 Silver will tarnish over time but on some people it will darken quicker simply due to natural oils in the skin or products used on the skin.

🤍 Copper is notorious for both tarnishing and for turning green.  The tarnish can be cleaned with a copper cleaner, or with lemon juice and salt.  The green, Verdigris, happens with moisture contact, it is not toxic and will wash off of skin with soap and water, copper can be coated with clear metal lacquer to give a barrier.
