Thoroughly enjoyed my silver clay jewellery making workshop!
This is the 3rd workshop I have done with Scarlet and as always, she was great. Really patient, explains everything well and really encouraging.
In the workshop, I made a pair of silver heart earrings and a pendant and I love them! And have received lots of compliments on them too.
I had never done anything like this before, so if you're a beginner to silver clay, don't be nervous, Scarlet makes it really easy and fun. (And if you're more advanced, WOW checkout her silver masks!!)
Thanks for a great workshop Scarlet. Loretta xxx
Scarlets Fairy Folk:
As always Loretta thank you again for coming and doing yet another workshop and for another great review. After many designs we finally settled on the hearts you made and they are lovely. You have a natural crafting ability and I love how you are really into trying anything. S.x
I have just finished a silver clay day with Scarlett & oh my gosh it was a brilliant day, I made the most lovely 3D pendant & it has raised up flowers & leaves & a little bird that I actually made myself. I'm so excited now & I want to make more jewellery with silver clay,I will definitely be coming back to make a silver clay bracelet with Scarlett. The workshop was so relaxed with her & she was so patient with me because I was a little slow at times but she encouraged me the whole time until I was confident enough to finish my jewellery.
I did the flower fairies workshop with her last year & I can honestly say these workshops have been some of the most fun things I've ever done.I recommend 100%, if I could give 10 stars I would, & you get a lot for your money.
Scarlets Fairy Folk:
..Wow what a review, I feel very humble by the reviews I am getting and yours is no exception.. I am so happy you enjoyed yourself.. you did very well with your pendant.. I never rush anyone during creating, we all work and learn at different speeds and I respect that.. and you were not slow at all.. Hope to see you again soon Lea.. I think you would do very well on the Silver Clay bracelet workshop.. Sx
Just returned from my first silver clay workshop as a complete beginner. Had the best day ever. Scarlet was so easy going and very relaxed in her teaching manner. That said I learnt loads and came away with 2 beautiful pendants. We had lots of laughs during the day but I really feel confident in having a go myself, which is what I wanted to achieve.
Many thanks Scarlet x
Scarlets Fairy Folk:
Thank you so much for your lovely review Karen, it was a good day and yes a proper giggle, Your pendants were really nice, you did good and I hope you can now go onto make lots more silver clay jewellery. I am sure your confidence will grow and grow quickly. Have fun and enjoy.. Scarlet x
I had my 4th workshop with Scarlet using the silverclay again. I cannot tell you how much I'm enjoying her workshops. I made some lovely star earrings & I'm getting more confident. It was just me there, but Scarlet gives you special attention even if it's just you on your own & in the group workshop that I have had at my house with my mates. Seriously I'm really getting addicted.
Scarlets Fairy Folk:
...hahahaha... Thanks for your review Roselyn (again).. I should have a board on the workshop wall for **Star Students**.. I think you would definitely be on it.. Hope to see you again soon for more creating.. S x
