Blog featured in London Jewellery School newsletter

LJS March 2011 newsletter
I was very pleased to be contacted by the London Jewellery School who asked if they could feature my blog in their newsletter.
Yesterday their March newsletter was distributed and this blog featured in their 'student spotlight' section (see left).
I have done a number of classes there including

Beginners metal clay
Art Clay level 1
Resin and Silver Jewellery
Make Button Jewellery


And I look forward to doing many more. I originally did a silversmithing course at another jewellery school but when I heard about the existence of silver clay I found the LJS. I knew I wanted to have a go with silver clay and I have been hooked ever since! I have been taught by Emma Ashworth, Julia Rai, Michael Milloy and Chu Mei-Ho at the LJS and have found them all to be excellent teachers with a lot of experience to share. Plus they have very well equipped studios which are very well resourced.
I highly recommend taking one of their classes. There is so much choice, you won't know where to start!

2018 Black Friday deals for metal clay jewellers

It's Black Friday again and even before the day arrived there were lots of deals around (and surely more to come). Black Friday is fairly new to the UK but it's always good to look out for a deal! Here are some of the best I've seen for metal clay artists. Do share any I've missed in the comments and I'll add them in

Clay, materials and tools
Cookson Gold has discounts on clay and tools
I haven't seen any other discounts on metal clay but there are a lot of discounts on gemstones and beads out there including Beads Direct and Kernowcraft. Elsilver also have discounts, it's worth checking out their 25% off offer on dies.

Online courses
Jewellers Academy has 50% off their courses including 3 metal clay courses. Tip: buy the bundle with Julia Rai's metal clay charms course and my stone setting torch fired course as it's the same cost as my course on its own! There's also the new Fancy bezels, prongs and bails course by Julia Rai which is great. Use c…
