The three day course was taught by Patrik Kusek at the Mid Cornwall School of Jewellery. On the course we had to make seven pieces to the correct standard - a pen, two pairs of earrings, two rings, a tetrahedron and a carved pendant. It was a lot to get done in the time but I learnt a great deal from Patrik and my fellow students on the course.
By passing the Rio certification I also achieved the Higher Diploma in Metal Clay from the Mid Cornwall School of Jewellery.
I am very happy that these two dreams have finally been realised and I feel I can really develop my skills with metal clay now.
