2018 Black Friday deals for metal clay jewellers

Fancy bezels, prongs and bails online course, Jewellers Academy

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 code CREATIVE2019 at check out to get the discounted price.

Tracey Spurgin has 50% off her distance learning courses at Craftworx

Jewellery inspiration - unusual stone settings

I am pretty addicted to pinterest and love that we have so much access to inspiration as jewellers there. I have recently been drawn to unusual stone settings and I find it useful to consider how the jeweller has done it as it gives me a jumping off point for ideas. Here are a few innovative designs that I love.
