My husband Phil and I wanted a weekend workshop to build on skills we had earlier acquired on a course closer to home. I searched the country for a silversmith with the skills, sympathetic aesthetic and flexibility to work with our requirements. Jolene was so helpful and accommodating. It was simply a joy to work with her for the weekend. Her studio is a warm and welcoming cornucopia of curiosities, filled with found objects, art and her own fabulous pieces. It's a very inspiring space. With her considerable knowledge and experience, Jolene was able to guide us to successful completion of our projects. Her restraint meant that we can fully own the finished pieces - the mark of a very good teacher. So glad we made the journey all the way from Suffolk to work with her.

What a fantastic experience and great fun to share with my daughter.
The quirky, homely and relaxing studio set the scene and Jolene was so knowledgeable and calm it made the whole experience quite therapeutic and very enjoyable for us both.
Jolene inspires you with confidence from the start and at the end of the day we both had three lovely pieces to be proud of and take home and show to family and friends.
It’s a wonderful gift to give someone of all ages and an ideal excuse for family and friends to get together and do something different. Without doubt we will be going back (we haven’t stopped talking about it since) And as a bonus Jolene makes lovely coffee the best banana bread ever tasted!
Thank you so much for a wonderful and memorable day. See you again soon!

Had such a lovely day! My mom bought me this course as a gift for my 40th birthday, I got to make some lovely pieces, an ankle bracelet that incorporated my star sign and birth stone personalised with my maiden name, married name and birth date which is really special to me and also x2 rings for myself and 1 for my mom to remember the day too! I’m so happy with my handmade jewellery and the experience was great! Jolene is a fabulous teacher and lovely person too! Definitely a day to remember and will definitely be going back, can’t recommend enough! Thankyou Jolene for a very special experience and lovely day xx

I had the best day ever!

I went to Jolene with my fiancee to make our wedding rings - if I'm honest, I was a little nervous about it before going, having not made any jewellery before and it being quite an important one! But Jolene made me feel completely at ease, guiding me through all stages, in her amazing, cute, quirky studio and the end result was Amazing!!

I couldn't be more happy with the ring and with how the day went - it was so relaxed, fun, special and I'd love to go again. Can't recommend Jolene highly enough!!

Had the most lovely day working on jewellery techniques with Jolene. I had an idea in my head that Jolene helped me to translate into 3 beautiful pairs of earrings, showing me how to plan and follow through a design from start to finish throughout the day.
This was my first day away from my 6 month baby girl and Jolene was so understanding of this, providing lots of tea and gorgeous homemade brownies, which really helped me relax into the day!
I left the day feeling eager to start new projects and gained confidence in my own ability - thank you very much for all your patience, Jolene...I’m sure I’ll be back! X

Jolene is amazing!
Her quirky, inspiration-filled studio is the perfect environment to spend the day making. The intention for the day was to make my wedding ring because I couldn’t find anywhere that would sell one as narrow as I liked when paired with my engagement ring. I managed to make the perfect ring, a pair of earrings for the big day out of the spare white gold and also some surprise gifts for my 5 bridesmaids! The day felt so relaxed and fun and, with the help of Jolene, pretty straightforward. She made all demonstrations clear, and then allowed me to create a mock-up of what I intended to create so the pressure was off a little when it came to the real thing! When my friends heard about me having made my own ring they all loved the idea and agreed it’s such a unique and memorable thing to have done! I cannot recommend this enough!

Jolene was very good at giving me the confidence as a complete beginner to try tricky processes, but would step in if this was needed. She was calm, warm and easy to listen to.
I was not sure if I was going to like jewellery making, but Jolene's enthusiasm meant I had a really enjoyable time and want to go back to do more

I had a wonderful day with Jolene helping me to create a beautiful silver bangle for myself and also two matching bangles and rings for my daughters.

Jemma - - #16498

I had a great day work in one to one with Jolene. She's very friendly and knowledgable. I had some ideas of what I wanted to make and she helped me work out the best way to make the earrings and bangle I made. Excellent workshop - do not hesitate to book on! The workshop is quirky with lots of things on display...including jolene's lovely jewellery! Thank you Jolene!

One day course making pendant & earrings - - #15922

I had such a lovely day at this workshop. Jolene's little studio is just adorable and there is so much inspiration in the quirky objects d'art in there. The studio is accessed via a staircase which may be difficult to climb for some. After a lovely drink and chat we started and before we knew it was time for lunch which was spent in the yard as it was a beautiful sunny day. The afternoon was spent working on other designs and I came away with 4 fabulous hand made items.

I learnt so much from Jolene and she was truly inspirational. I was so pleased with my designs and have been wearing them ever since. I would love to go back again and I can certainly recommend this course.

What a fantastic day I've had with Jolene! I've learnt so much and thoroughly enjoyed myself. I have made several beautiful pieces of jewellery today and already received positive comments from family and friends. Jolene's workshop is a treasure trove, so many beautiful items to look at and inspire you. Jolene is an excellent tutor who makes you feel at ease and supports you to get the most out of the day. Highly recommend.

Lovely quirky workshop with all the tools you need! Jolene has a relaxed approach to teaching which makes you feel instantly at ease. You can move at your own pace and she is constantly on hand to help. I wanted to learn more about techniques etc which I did. Thank you Jolene!
