Enamelled jewellery for beginners and improvers - fired glass jewellery techniques
"I did the Flamework beginners course. Enjoyed the experience thoroughly with Toni. Toni is an excellent teacher. She is very patient and guided me throughout the process of making the beads. She showed me different techniques that can be used to make the glass beads. She has given me details of books and materials required to make beads.
I would highly recommend anyone who is interested to join this course. Enjoyed the day and I will be going back to do more.
Thanks once again Toni. "
"I have never done any jewellery making before so Toni did a great job at explaining what we were going to cover, the theory behind silver clay, how we were going to do it and the background of making hand crafted jewellery.
Toni was very informative, helpful and put me at ease. I had a lovely day and came away with some personal, handmade jewellery. Would highly recommend this course"
"Toni was a very knowledgeable and friendly tutor. My husband purchased the enamelling on silver clay session with her as a Christmas present. I had done silver clay before but the enamelling was completely new to me. Because of my experience with silver clay I felt that I would have preferred less time planning my pieces but more time enamelling them.
I Thoroughly enjoyed my day with Toni and would definitely recommend her and her courses to others."

" Thank you for your feedback. The planning process is important for enamelling on silver clay and most students who come have done neither craft, or generally need a reminder even if they have. However, having taken your thoughts on board, for those that have done silver clay before I will look into sending them some planning info beforehand to speed up the silver clay part of the process, then I can be stricter on the timings for the planning/prototype section. It may also need to be just a one-to-one class for this to work. I’ll have a think. Best wishes, Toni :-)"
"Great experience from start to finish. Toni creates a very friendly, easygoing atmosphere. It was helpful to have a little prior experience, but all explanations were very clear, and group size was small, so Toni had time to help individually and answer any questions. Very happy with the results, too (and so is my daughter, who got a lovely pair of earrings out of my silver clay day :))."
