La Vidalerie is a 300 year old farmhouse in the beautiful Aveyron in SW France. Hidden away in the middle of farming land its roofs were beginning to collapse and had suffered from horrible attempts to modernise it. Despite all this we chose La Vidalerie to be our new home in France and the centre of our jewellery making workshop.
We spent the first three years working together to remove the damage done and renovate the house and courtyard buildings bring it closer to it’s original state.
In 2008 we started running our jewellery making holidays, from beading to silversmithing to absolute beginners to those wishing to develop their skills further.
My passion for handmade jewellery and Tim’s huge range of building skills have given us the chance to live in this very beautiful and unknown part of France.
Please visit our website for more information about our jewellery making holidays and short breaks and to see my full range of artisan silver jewellery and handmade findings.
