Silver clay on Create and Craft TV

Exciting news - Jessica Rose, director at the London Jewellery School, has been working with Create and Craft TV and her first live shows will be tomorrow, Thursday 10th March 2016 at 10am and 6pm.

The shows will feature metal clay kits and the opportunity to purchase online classes including Metal silver clay charms by Julia Rai and, eventually, my course, stone setting in metal clay (torch fire techniques).
