About the Course

Have you ever wanted to make your own piece of silver jewellery? Or are you looking for a gift experience for someone who loves jewellery? My half day workshops will be an introduction to making silver jewellery using traditional tools and techniques in the tranquil setting of my garden workshop.

*Due to the current situation and to be in line with COVID-19 safety policies, I am no longer offering full day workshops. Hopefully, I will be able to in the future.

The half day is totally tailored to you because my workshops are 1:1 and your jewellery making experience will begin before you even step foot in the workshop! I will be in contact beforehand to chat and discuss your designs and ideas so you can make the most of your day.

The day will start at 10am with a cuppa and workshop orientation; familiarising yourself with the tools and materials. Then you will crack on with making your jewellery by learning techniques such as sawing, filing, drilling, annealing, soldering and polishing. I will be on hand to offer advice and guidance and will demonstrate each part of the jewellery making process. The half day will finish at 1.30pm - just in time for lunch. There are lots of lovely places to eat in Leighton Buzzard, so make a day of it!

I guarantee that you will feel satisfied and rewarded for creating your own pieces of jewellery and also relaxed with easy going chat and Radio 2!

The perfect experience. From the first communication to leaving her home, Jude made this a beautiful experience. I was nervous my designs were to difficult to achieve, she made it so easy to follow her instructions and supported me, fully enabling me to achieve my chosen piece to an amateur's perfection. Jude was funny and open-hearted putting me at ease throughout the whole process. Topped by a great gluten free lunch.
Worth the money and some! Thank you Jude. Brilliant!

Response from Jude Karnon Jewellery:

Sam, thank you so much for a lovely review. You were a talented and enthusiastic student and made such wonderful items. The necklace was inspired and well done for working on such a detailed piece. The end result was beautiful.

It was also wonderful to spend the day with such a funny person! Loved all the laughs.

What an amazing day thank you Jude so very much .. the day far exceeded my expectations !!
I loved sharing the day with my aunt. We learnt so much and came away with jewellery we actually liked. I made a ring and bangles and have worn them every day since. Jude inspired me so much that I'm now attending a jewellery making course.

Thank you Jude for making our day so special and designing the day around us and what we wanted to achieve .. which we did and loved it !!

Response from Jude Karnon Jewellery:

Hi Louise,

Thank you for your lovely comments. It was so lovely to work with you both and that your Aunt was awarded the student from the furthest away!

I am glad you are still wearing your pieces and you have decided to carry on your jewellery making journey.

Take care xx

One of my best days ever!
A really relaxed day with expert tuition - I’m thrilled with what I made! This was my first attempt at jewellery making and it certainly won’t be the last - I’m so excited and inspired!
I thoroughly recommend this workshop - endless cups of tea, a delicious lunch and lots of information and help when needed - the day flew by!
Thanks so much Jude!

Response from Jude Karnon Jewellery:

Jane, what a lovely review - thank you.

You did incredibly well for a first attempt and glad you have the jewellery making bug. I hope to see you again very soon for some more jewellery making.

Wow! Anyone interested in making their own jewellery has to book this experience!
Jude is a very warm and friendly person with a great sense of humour. We had a good laugh together. The working space was professional, she had everything available to make the items I requested and was very knowledgeable.
I was kept topped up with brews and biscuits throughout the day and the lunch was delicious! I couldn’t stop eating.
I made a beautiful wave ring that I thought would be quite difficult but the way Jude taught me made it very simple. I keep getting plenty of comments about how nice it looks. I also made a bangle and 2 pairs of earrings that I love. I will definitely return and make more items with Jude when I’m in the area.

Response from Jude Karnon Jewellery:

Hey Janine,

Many many thanks for this wonderful review. It was an absolute pleasure working with you, and a lot of fun. I am glad you love your pieces and you were pretty talented at making jewellery.

It would be awesome to see you again.

Nicola,

You are very kind with your comments; I am rather overwhelmed and chuffed :). My job is made easier when I teach such enthusiastic and willing students who totally relax into the day and let their creative sides take over.
It was such a fun day, thank you Nicola x

My daughter and I had a wonderful day - seven and half hours spent making jewellery with a short break for a delicious lunch. Jude even managed to work out a way for my daughter to achieve the complex origami style pendant that she had thought up (although there were sighs when my daughter realised that she was giong to have to do some very delicate soldering). It was very much a hands on experience which was great, even better we each managed to make three pieces of jewellery.

Just home from a day course with Jude which was a gift from my husband for Christmas. Jude was warm and friendly and I was at ease from the moment we met. Fantastic day filled with laughs and great tips. Jude has given me the confidence to follow my dream of designing and making my own jewellery in silver. As I said to Jude this was the 4th best experience of my life after my marriage, the birth of my children and grandchildren. I learnt so much and left with such sense of achievement and a massive smile on my face. I would definitely recommend Jude as a teacher of silver skills, Thanks Jude and much love x

Amazing day! My daughter and I love the jewellery we made, and had a fantastic time making it. Jude is patient and very good at explaining how to work with silver. She also makes a lovely cuppa, and lunch was yummy. I don't think we stopped laughing, it was a brilliant day.
Thanks Jude!
