Jo & Mel went home yesterday after 3 really fun workshop days.  They came full of ideas and enthusiasm – the only things you need to bring to our workshops.   Jewellery making workshop

Jo & Mel’s Wonderful Creations !

You’ll find more photos of their work on our FaceBook page – (Just click on the photo above) but here are just a few of their pieces for you to enjoy !

Mel had seen some rings made from American coins and fancied having a go, we were all impressed with the results –

They both had a go at glass fusing, Jo cut and fused dichroic glass to make this cab then made the ring mount in sterling silver.

Etching is a wonderful technique, you can learn more about etching and riveting on one of our jewellery making workshop holidays and make your own etched copper jewellery.
