Sally reviewed: Make a silver ring or bangle

"I can’t recommend Lucy’s one to one tuition enough. Spent a day in Lucy’s fantastic workshop, finishing a silver pendant. Lucy is very adaptable to her students' plans and needs- we discuss ideas beforehand and develop a plan/agree on any materials needed. She is very patient and encouraging and thanks to her, my confidence with silversmithing is growing - I’m starting to create ideas of my own rather than using images I’ve seen elsewhere. Lucy even sends helpful photos taken during the process, after the days tuition. Book a course with Lucy, and not only will you create beautiful jewellery, but you will be well looked after. I always leave having learnt something new, often unexpected and always useful! "

"Thank you Sally for your review. You have only had 3 - 4 sessions over the last year and shown excellent progress and initiative. It's good to see you developing, and finding out that being creative really is something you can do!"

Allison reviewed: Make a silver ring or bangle

"This was my first visit to Lucy's course. What can I say, fantastic. Lucy made me feel so welcome and I truly enjoyed myself. I did an Enamel course, making earrings and pendants on copper blanks and took them home. Lucy was a great teacher and I learnt so much in a day. Highly recommended. Thank you Lucy x"

Edna reviewed: Make a silver ring or bangle

"I have been coming to Lucy for some time now and we managed to finish the drop earrings that I started some time ago. The lesson does not just involve learning techniques, it involves planning the design and even completing that process we had to fine tune it to what worked aesthetically. This is what makes coming to Lucy worth while for me. "

Exclusive Jewellery responded:

"Thank you Edna. You persevered with determination to complete your amazing earrings, despite the interruption caused by Covid. Well done!"

Jackie Dyda reviewed: Make a silver ring or bangle

"I highly recommend Lucy's invaluable beginners jewellery making course! I set out to learn some beginners techniques for making silver rings. Lucy made me feel at ease and encouraged confidence whilst taking on the project. The one to one workshop allows you to study and practice techniques to produce jewellery and envision your own designs. I can confidently buy materials after experiencing this course, along with guidance that Lucy provided. I will be booking further sessions to build my new skills. I want to thank you Lucy for encouraging something I have always wanted to do. I will see you soon :)"

Exclusive Jewellery responded:

"Look forward to seeing you at the Workshop again Jackie. You have lots of ability and loads more to discover! Best wishes Lucy"
