A fantastic, fun, educational, creative and rewarding day for our little family. Thanks Jonathan - for our 10 year old boy and both parents to come away with unique treasures that we designed and executed from scratch, is a testament to your skill as a teacher!

Lisa Brown - - #34064

Thanks to the pandemic, it was 18months from receiving the Silver Jewellery Making class as a birthday gift, and actually doing it! Throughout that time Jonathan was very communicative and I'm so glad that I eventually got to do it.
Jonathan paced the day well and gave us really clear instruction, and lots of individual attention. I was absolutely thrilled with the result and thoroughly enjoyed the day.
I highly recommend you do it - and you also get cake!

Response from Salt Way Silver:

Lovely to meet you at last! And thank you for being so patient. It was a great day and your pendant is stunning - so well done with the design.
Thank you Lisa, for choosing Salt Way Silver.

Amazing day! This was a birthday gift and I've always wanted to have a go at making jewellery.
We learned different skills making a keyring first then after lunch, made a piece of silver jewellery. I chose a ring with a textured surface and I am so happy with how it turned out!
Jonathan is a great teacher and it was a lovely relaxed atmosphere, would love to do it again! (the cake was delicious too!)

We have had a brilliant day. There is something so rewarding in being able to finish and look down at the ring on your finger and say "I made that". Have learned new skills, got a new ring, but most of all it was just fun.

Response from Salt Way Silver:

Well done Dave and thank you for the kind words. I've added your reef knot ring design to my list of favourite projects, so thank you for that too!
