"As a new person to jewellery making I was worried that I would be not be any good at developing this new skill. I shouldn't have worried at all as Jude was an expert in her field. She made the lesson fun and interactive. I would definitely recommend this course to everyone."

Jude Karnon Jewellery responded:

" Hi Cecilia, Thank you for such a lovely review. You both took to jewellery making pretty easily with bags of confidence. I have polished your rings and will get them to you this week. It was lovely to meet you both. Judex"

"Booked this course as a last minute birthday treat. Jude was quick and informative when making the booking. The course was so enjoyable. I felt welcomed into her work place while adhering to COVID restrictions. Jude has a calm, patient and approachable nature and we loved learning about silver and jewellery making. Nothing felt like too much trouble. Jude sent the jewellery quickly via post and followed up to make sure we were happy. Would highly recommend. Thanks Jude!"

Jude Karnon Jewellery responded:

" Hi Lizzie, Thank you soooooo much for such wonderful feedback. I loved having you and your Mum over and your enthusiasm was brilliant. You both did so well for beginners and I'm glad you liked your finish pieces. Jude x"

Fiona Bignell reviewed: Silver jewellery workshop for beginners with Jude Karnon

"My one-to-one workshop with Jude was great! Even in these strange times, Jude was able to create a relaxed, friendly atmosphere. She enabled me to create the ring I designed using different techniques, and I came away having learnt a good deal more about silversmithing. Thoroughly recommend!"

Jude Karnon Jewellery responded:

" Hi Fiona, Thank you very much for your kind works. It was an absolute pleasure working with you, expecially with all your enthusiasm and willingness to learn new things. Take care, Jude x"

Sam reviewed: Silver jewellery workshop for beginners with Jude Karnon

"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!"

Jude Karnon Jewellery responded:

" 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. Jude x"

"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 !!"

Janine Winfield reviewed: Silver jewellery workshop for beginners with Jude Karnon

"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."

Jude Karnon Jewellery responded:

" 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. Jude x"

"Amazing day today with Jude! Such a talented creative with a great, personable teaching manner. I was lucky enough to receive a gift certificate from my other Half's parents as a Christmas gift. Firstly, I contacted Jude to to find out the details and she took onboard what I wanted to make and let me know what was achievable in the timescale. We booked a date, the directions were super clear and included great tips for us forgetful people like "bring your glasses for close up work" etc. Upon arrival I was greeted with coffee and a chat about designs etc. The important safety aspects of the training were recited and we were off into the comfy, warm and well organised rabbit hole of tools. Lots of techniques used, invaluable advice and encouragement given along the way. Fabby lunch to break up the day- I could seriously spend hours bimbling (pottering); I honestly didn't want to stop. I can wholeheartedly recommend this course and Jude's work from my experience. DO go and check out her work and spread the good news!"

Jude Karnon Jewellery responded:

" Faith, Thank you for the lovely review. You showed a lot of creativity, enthusiasm and willingness to learn...my fave kind of student! A lovely day, thank you. Jude"

Nicola Johnson reviewed: Silver jewellery workshop for beginners with Jude Karnon

"I can honestly say at £130 this course is a bargain. I am a professional modern artist and I have spent a lot of money on upskilling via various workshops over the years and Jude truly smashes it. For the money I paid ( the equivalent to a group spot of 1 of 12 or 30 anywhere else), I got one to one tuition. Initially I was a little worried Jude might be a skilled crafter just running courses on the side and trust me when I say because you have a talent it doesn't always mean you can teach. Fear not though Jude was amazing, not only can she teach very well, Jude is a professional teacher, teaching at a range of local and national colleges, she has a passion for silver (and Gold) and very high standard Jewellery skills. She taught me well enough that I understood what I was being taught enough to do it again and she allowed me to make all my own work rather than helping in the tougher bits. She has more than all the kit to both make and teach. She is grounded, approachable and an awful lot of fun. For my one to one fee, I got all the silver I could make with, all Judes expertise and use of all the equipment. Not to mention a fresh and healthy lunch which was divine, a hold load of laughs and numerous teas and coffees. I cannot recommend these courses highly enough."

Jude Karnon Jewellery responded:

" 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"

BARBARA THOMAS reviewed: Silver jewellery workshop for beginners with Jude Karnon

"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."

Alda Mason reviewed: Silver jewellery workshop for beginners with Jude Karnon

"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!"
