This was a wonderful jewellery making session in a very inspiring garden studio. I learnt new techniques and made a shopping list of all the equipment I need to buy! We made a lovely bracelet which I will enjoy wearing. Angela is a very kind and patient teacher. Thoroughly recommend this workshop.
Having had no experience in making jewelry ever, and wanting to do an idea of my own I found Ange very accommodating and very knowledgeable about why and what we were doing. Ended up with a really lovely ring, and had a great time making it! Would recommend to anyone who wants to try it.
Response from AngeB Designs:Was a pleasure meeting you! The ring you made was fantastic and I’m sure your girlfriend will love it!
Learning the basics of crafting custom, bespoke and striking silver jewellery was such a curious experience.
From talking through designs, textures and fittings to working on sawing, sculpting and soldering gave me such an insight and sense of fun it was unbeatable.
Ange was brilliant at explaining each step and process and the reasons behind them.
I'd recommend the workshop highly :)
Honestly one of the best things I’ve ever done! Such a wonderful experience, very hands on and I was so impressed with the end result. Ange was incredible, so knowledgable and friendly. Really made me feel at ease and paced the session really well.
I had no prior experience of making jewellery or working with silver prior to this session and I absolutely loved it! Would 100% recommend, 10/10.
I never thought I could make a bangle in 2 hours. Thanks to Ange who makes it possible and so easy.
This workshop takes place in warm and cosy setting which is comfortable and bright.
I'm very particular about the jewellery I wear so it was such a lovely experience to be able to make something for myself that I love. I can't stop looking at it.
Ange is a brilliant teacher and craftswoman. She makes it fun and just let's you get on with it which was fantastic.
Highly recommend this workshop to anyone who wants to treat themselves or a friend. Anyone can do this.
Thank you Angela
This was such an excellent course. Angela was super knowledgeable, helpful, very kind and really patient. I would take a course again with her in a heartbeat. Despite me actually accidentally ruining my work, she helped me start again and make something I really like.
Also, her personal work is amazingly beautiful.
Absolute loved visiting the she cave. Ange is an awesome human, creative about design and it was so fun trying out all the tools and techniques. I have a truly unique piece of jewellery and a very happy memory.
Would love to rebook and make some earrings next time 🤩
Huge thank you to Angie who is an excellent teacher and super friendly with years of experience which is clear to see.
The workshop is in a cosy shed in the garden, and the process of making a bangle is intense and satisfying as I learnt a lot of intricate details that you otherwise don't think about or notice when buying jewellery.
I flattened my bangle and added texture to create a beautiful piece of jewellery that I won't find anywhere else.
A brilliant experience with a very happy customer and I would highly recommend!
I received this course as a gift from friends. I enjoy making things and love silver jewellery, so I was very excited about the opportunity to learn how to make a ring. Angela was fantastic to deal with when booking the lesson, and a great teacher. She explained and demonstrated each step, and supports you to do the work yourself so your ring is truly your own! I found the session interesting and fun -- and I have a fab ring to keep.
Thank you, Angela.
I had such a good time making my very own silver ring. Having never worked with silver before, Ange was great with giving me all the guidance I needed and explained all the stages and how to use the various tools.
I'm hooked! Can't wait to make another 10!
I'd thoroughly recommend this workshop, it's such a great way of designing and making a piece of jewellery you'll have for ever. Thanks Ange!
What a fantastic experience!
I knew I was in safe hands with Ange as she explained each step in detail. She's a great teacher - knowledgeable, patient and encouraging. Came away having learnt so much and with a beautiful stack of 3 rings which I'm thrilled with. A thoroughly rewarding afternoon. Highly recommended!
I would highly recommend Angela’s course: it was a really enjoyable from beginning to end. Angela is a brilliant teacher - extremely knowledgable and flexible in approach, and allowed me to bring my own design to the session. I made two rings, using different methods, and learnt so much. And most importantly, I love the finished product. Thanks so much Angela! P.s - She also makes a lovely cuppa 😊
My mum brought me this as a gift and I had a lovely morning in Angela's workshop making a stack of three rings. I had never done jewellery making before but Angela was a great teacher and I ended the session with some unique rings which I love.
I highly recommend this course it is fun, value for money, exciting and very creative.
Ange's passion for silver smithing/jewellery making shines through. She is very knowledgeable and is keen to share her knowledge of the process. She gives you some guidance but allows you to express your artistic flair during the process of making the rings.
Ange patiently and clearly explained each step and then it was over to me to have a go, which I loved. Where extra support and help was needed she gladly helped out and the help was gratefully received.
I love the fact I made three silver rings and wear them with pride.
The 'she cave' is an amazing and comfortable space and I was warmly welcomed into it.
I hope Ange expands her offerings as I would love to do another course.
Very inspirational, thanks so much for the course. Fiona x
This was a really great experience. Ange is a patient and knowledgeable teacher who helped me realise the design I had in my head. After a few hours in her work space (good tea and great biscuits btw) I left wearing a fabulous pinkie ring that all my mates have noticed! Enjoyable and rewarding - thanks Ange!!
Actually, I've been thinking of a design for an index finger ring...
What an amazing afternoon, Angela was so generous with her knowledge, time, and biscuits!
I learned so much about silversmithing, not just how to make jewellery but about some of the properties of silver and how to get started a jewellery maker.
Plus, it was a so much fun to create 3 rings from start to finish. Angela is great at offering suggestions and lots of support for creativity. I’m so thrilled with how they came out, I almost can’t believe I made them myself!
Truly a wonderful way to spend an afternoon and I would highly recommend it to anyone who wants to understand how silver jewellery is made and wants to go home with something unique.
What and incredibly fascinating afternoon!
I love buying jewellery and had never thought about making it myself until I was given this workshop as a birthday gift by my partner. I had no idea what to expect or if I could even make a ring!
Ange gave great explanation and guidance about the making process, hammering, sizing, soldering, sanding and tips how to clean the ring. Time just flew by.
I am still amazed I made my personalised 3 stack ring, my partner even more amazed, said it looked so professional and unique.
Ange you are a great teacher, thank you so much for an enjoyable and memorable day.
