Copper wire jewellery, Madeley, Cheshire

About the Course

You will make at least one piece of jewellery and get to know some useful tools and tricks and different types of wires you can use for your project.

You will have a go at forming some simple shapes such as angles to make geometric shapes as well as swirls and textures. I will show you how to work with copper, forming into shapes, and to clean and polish it.

There is a choice of gemstones or beads to use in your project or bring your own beads and jewellery to upcycle. Everything you make will be unique to you :)

I aim to reply to your messages within 24 hours so if you can't find my message please check your junk mail for my response.

A bit about me:

I just love working with all sorts crafts, designing DIY bespoke pieces for the home and I try to upcycle as much as possible to be kinder to our planet and produce beautiful handcrafted pieces.

I studied Art and Design over 25 years ago at my local college, then became a member of the North Staffs Guilds of Craftsmen where I had the opportunity to display my work. I have demonstrated some techniques of my wirework recently at one of their craft fairs.

I am a fully qualified tutor and am keen to 'boost up' your creative skills in this most enjoyable craft. Hopefully this will give you the confidence to move on to more precious metals in the future :)

I spent a lovely two hours yesterday jewellery making with Kami. Kami explained and demonstrated everything really clearly and made me feel really relaxed and confident enough to have a go myself.
I came home with a lovely handmade bracelet and two rings which I will be proudly showing off and I will definitely be having a go at making my own at home.

Response from Kamsi:

Thanks for a lovely review, Gillian.
It was a pleasure to teach you some tips and tricks and well done on completing 3 pieces of jewellery! I'm really pleased to hear you're going to continue being creative at home! xx

Wow what an amazing experience! I thoroughly enjoyed this course - Kami was
incredibly hospitable, patient and knowledgeable in her field of jewellery making.
I made a beautiful bracelet and ring, which I showed off later at a party. Since then, I’ve brought some equipment Kami suggested and started to make my own - I will be booking another session with Kami as her creative abilities are boundless and I want to know more!
Thank you Kami - I’ll see you again soon.

Response from Kamsi:

Helen,

Thanks so much for your awesome review. It was great you wanted to learn so much and time flew by! I love the bead colours you chose for your bracelet and even had time to make a beautiful ring too. I am so pleased to hear you've managed to buy some materials and basic tools to continue with more wirework projects, especially as we are all in self isolation at the moment. I am more than happy to deliver a session via Skype so you can follow me to make more amazing jewellery. I hope you enjoyed this birthday gift from your partner and see you again very soon for some more advanced sessions. Thanks for joining me, Helen, take care xxx

I bought this as a gift for my mother in law. We went together and had a wonderful afternoon with Kami. Kami was warm and welcoming, knowledgable and patient. We had a lovely time, coming away with a ring. I highly recommend this to anyone.

Response from Kamsi:

Thanks for the lovely review. You and Jan were amazing at picking up all the techniques involved in forging the rings. I do hope you'll continue with the craft and you're welcome back anytime. Please get in touch if you need more help or want to try other techniques, I'm more than happy to help :)

I had this course bought for me as a birthday gift and it’s been one of the best experiences I’ve done. Kami was warm and welcoming and very multi skilled. I was able to make my very own beautiful ring which I’m really proud of and I will definitely be returning to make a matching necklace. Great company, lovely teacher and very relaxed atmosphere.

Response from Kamsi:

Thanks for an awesome review. Kira, you're a natural with your creative skills. So glad you learnt so much and hope it's another string to your bow! Yes you're welcome to book again anytime and I'm looking forward to it xx

I had an afternoon course with Kami. She is knowledgeable and encouraging for an absolute beginner such as myself. I came away with a completed pendant and the materials to make the matching earrings.
It was an excellent introduction to the craft and has encouraged me to continue with it.

Response from Kamsi:

Hi Samantha,

Thanks for your lovely review. I'm so glad you enjoyed learning some tricks of the trade and finished your project. I hope all goes well with the matching earrings too.

Wishing you a merry Christmas and a happy new year :)

PS I'll let you know if I start any other craft workshops in the new year :)

Had an evening with Kami making jewellery.
Patient and professional, kind and fun.
Made a beautiful necklace which I love and have had so many comments on.
Would highly recommend and I’ll be back soon to do another

Response from Kamsi:

Thanks so much for coming, Emma. Out of all the hundreds of semi-precious gemstones we looked at, you managed to find the one that spoke to you the most. It's perfect for you! Enjoy, Emma xxx
