"What a wonderful way to spend an afternoon! Nina is so welcoming and patient, she passes over her knowledge with a smile of encouragement. We had a relaxing stacker ring session, you can learn at your own pace and the end result is so worth it. Thank you so much, we will be back!"

"I absolutely loved the course. I'd never done anything like it before, so it was a brand new experience. Nina had loads of knowledge and tonnes of patience. I'm now the proud owner of two gorgeous rings. They're not perfect, because it was my first go, but they're all the more precious because I can say I made them myself!"

Julie S reviewed: Silver Jewellery Making: Trio of Silver Stacking Rings

"My friend and I had such a lovely day, together with three others - and we left with three lovely rings each which, to be honest looked a lot more professional than I expected having never made any jewellery before. Nina is very welcoming, she also ran the workshop really well, explaining and demonstrating the processes clearly, letting us get on with it but helping us out where necessary, answering our numerous questions and sorting out any little issues we created! I'm really looking forward to joining Nina on other workshops and will probably do this one again - you can never have too many stacking rings. Just a note, google maps takes you to the right place but you need to know that Lynx Roux is halfway down a snicket (alley depending on where you're from) between the church and the shops."

Jane & Sue reviewed: Silver Jewellery Making: Gemstone stacking rings

"What a wonderful day my sister and I spent with Nina at her silversmith workshop. She is a fabulous, relaxed teacher, welcoming and easy going. learning was made so easy with great explanations, guidance and hands on approach. Plus the tea & coffee flowed and the biscuits were lovely. We were guided though the whole process with enough information for each part of the process, We never felt overwhelmed with info. The day flew by and at the end we had 2 beautiful rings each to bring home, we were so made up we had actually made them ourselves. I haven't enjoyed a day out so much for quite a while. I can't recommend Nina enough and we will be booking with her again soon. Brilliant day. thank you & well done"

Iasthai Original responded:

" Jane and Sue, you absolute stars ✨ What a brilliant workshop we had thanks in no small part to you both and Kate. A real dream group! I really had the most wonderful time with you ladies and I'm so proud of how beautiful your rings turned out. So looking forward to seeing you both again. Big love to you x"

"Me and my friend attended this course because of great word of mouth and we were not disappointed! I am in love with my cufs and often get asked about them, so it feels great to be able to say I made them myself. I can't speak highly enough of Nina. Apart from being a great teacher she's also warm and funny and really just puts you at ease. Time flew, and it's made me want to book on every workshop she offers. Really excited for 2022. Thank you Nina XX"

"Wow! This was an amazing course! My daughter and I attended this workshop and I can’t rate it highly enough…Nina is an absolute gem, highly knowledgable and lots of fun. We came away with lots of news skills and 2 beautiful rings as gorgeous reminders of our workshop. We enjoyed it so much, Nina very kindly put together a box of tools for us to make more silver with so we can make our own items. We are very much looking forward to working with Nina again!"

Wendy reviewed: Silver Jewellery Making: Fidget/Spinner Ring

"I have attended 2 of Nina’s workshops making stacking rings and a spinner ring. I have never tried silversmithing before this, Nina was very welcoming, friendly and professional, she explained everything very clearly and demonstrated each process. I really enjoyed both workshops and came away with some lovely pieces of jewellery made my me which makes them special. I would highly recommend making jewellery with Nina. I hope to join in more of Nina’s workshops this year."

Iasthai Original responded:

" What a wonderful end to my year! Thank you so much Wendy, it's been an absolute pleasure and I look forward to seeing you SOON 🔨💍 Happy New Year! 🥂"

Pete reviewed: Silver Jewellery Making: Fidget/Spinner Ring

"Did this Spinner Ring course yesterday with a friend. What a blast!! Nina is fab and an excellent tutor. She takes great care to ensure that your ring is your design and your execution i.e. your ring - and guides and educates you to ensure that you go home with just the design that you wanted. Please don't think that jewellery is not for the blokes - this course works so well for everybody. Nina is an incredible tutor who really knows her craft and takes great care that you get full value from the course. I went on this course with a friend and we had so much fun. Our ring designs were quite different but worked so well and we could look at each others designs and see how well they shone! I very much recommend this course and am really looking forward to the the next session with Nina where I can learn something new"

Lisa reviewed: Silver Jewellery Making: Gemstone stacking rings

"Went on the Spinner Rings course with a friend to experience something new. Nina is incredibly welcoming and puts you at ease straight away. Working immediately with the basics of ring sizing (with Nina making it so easy!) and getting straight into working with the silver which turned out to be very tactile. It didn’t matter that we had no experience as Nina helped us at every step, explaining just enough to allow you to get through the next part without feeling overwhelmed by details, or rushed to get something done. The time simply flew by and the ring took shape throughout (it was great to see each step making a difference, working towards the finished item). We had a whale of a time. It was incredibly good fun, easy to lose yourself in the making and not notice the time simply flying by just as having fun with some great friends. I highly recommend this course and can’t wait to do another with Nina."

"Such a great way to spend an afternoon and so pleased with the fidget ring- as is my wife. Would definitely recommend. Nina is lovely, patient and a good teacher. No question seemed too much and I even left with a sheet of materials and tools I'd need to start this up as a hobby. I'll be seeing you soon Nina- looking forward to the private classes"

Danielle reviewed: Silver Jewellery Making: Cuff Bangles

"Having attended the bangle making class I can honestly say I can't wait to join more of Nina's workshops! She is just lovely. So friendly and truly explains everything and gives any additional information you can think to ask. It's so nice to feel truly supported in a new skill, and aside from coming away with a beautiful bangle (I made it myself hehe!) I feel that I've also come away with a true mentor and friend. Thank you Nina! x"

Kate Yates reviewed: Silver Jewellery Making: Gemstone stacking rings

"No experience? - no problem. Even a complete novice such as me can be learning and creating in no time. Take an idea and with patient and knowledgeable instructions you can come away not only with an individual piece of hand crafted jewellerry, but also a new skill learned and a desire to create more. Would recommend this fun,informative and worthwhile experience to anyone wanting to explore their creative side."

Iasthai Original responded:

" What a lovely review! Thank you so much Kate x"
