Jayne Paterson reviewed: 1-Day Jewellery Making “Pendant & Earrings Workshop for 2 people

"I wasn't sure what to expect from the workshop and I guess I'd never really thought about how jewellery is made. It was a complete eye-opener! There were two of us and Linda expertly...and patiently took us through the various processes. At the end of the day I was the proud owner of a pair of silver earrings and matching necklace! Thank you Linda for a really interesting and fun day. "

"There were two of us on this course, complete novices, and what a great time we had! I had no idea how much was involved in making an item of jewellery and have a new respect for those who do it for a living or as a hobby! Linda was a very patient teacher, very creative, always making helpful suggestion to allow us to achieve or improve whatever ideas we had come up with. The little workshop is very well equipped and ideally located within the grounds of Belgrave Hall, so it was lovely and quiet and we could go for a wander and have our picnic in the gardens and courtyard. And at the end of the day we came out with our very own item of jewellery! The course was great fun, very instructive, and I would recommend it to anyone!!"

"I really enjoyed my day. Having attended courses with different tutors in the past I was impressed by how our individual requirements were met and our tutors knowledge was communicated in such a clear and concise way. A fun day, pleased with my stacking ring and just sad that Leicester’s gain is Fromes loss. Tricia"

Linda Sandeman Jewellery responded:

" Hi Tricia, Thank you so much for your review. It was lovely meeting you and being apart of your jewellery making journey. Good luck and happy jewellery making. Linda:)"

"I had a fantastic 2-day workshop with Linda and made two lovely pieces of jewellery. Linda is very knowledgeable and was very encouraging, and I came away with a good understanding of various techniques. She had a very relaxed style of teaching which made the whole time really enjoyable. I would highly recommend these workshops to anyone who wants a fun experience or is interested in making jewellery."

Tania reviewed: 1-Day Jewellery Making Silver Copper Workshop for 2 people

"I thoroughly enjoyed Linda’s workshop. There was a small group of 4 which was perfect. We had the choice of making earrings, pendant, bangle or a ring. I decided on some earrings. Linda was really encouraging and gave lots of guidance so we could achieve something special. I decided on a pair of earrings and I’m so thrilled with them! Not only did I learn a lot of jewellery making skills, I also learnt another technique called keum boo where you bond 24ct gold onto your piece. Thanks Linda for such a great day. Can’t wait to come back"

Linda Sandeman Jewellery responded:

" Thank you so much for your wonderful review. It was so lovely having you there. Loved your design on your earrings. The keum boo really sets them off. :-)"

Emma Yabsley reviewed: Half-Day Jewellery Making Workshop

"What a wonderful Half day workshop. I was amazed that we had the choice of making a bangle, earrings, ring or a pendant as we only had 3 hours. I came away with a beautiful pendant and as a beginner I was thrilled with what I had made. Thanks Linda for a great time. . Maybe the 1 day workshop next time? I highly recommend this workshop."

Linda Sandeman Jewellery responded:

" Thank you so much for your wonderful review. It was really lovely having you there and seeing you achieve such a beautiful pendant!"

Sarah Cox reviewed: 1-Day Jewellery Making Silver Copper Workshop for 2 people

"A very warm welcome from Linda upon arrival, a group of 4 attended which was lovely as we were all to encourage and admire each others work! Clear instructions and oodles of patience from Linda made the day an absolute pleasure. I'm thrilled with my piece, something I never imagined that I'd be able to create in one session. I can't wait to go again. � �"

Linda Sandeman Jewellery responded:

" Thank you so much for the wonderful review. It was really lovely meeting you and sharing the day in such a creative way. I really loved your ring and the textures you went for. Happy wearing! x"

Molley scoble reviewed: 1-Day Jewellery Making Silver Copper Workshop for 2 people

"As a complete beginner this class was perfect, but it is also for more experienced makers or those visiting again! We all came away with something we were very happy with and all different from each other, one person made three stacking rings, another a pair of long dangly earrings and I made a necklace and small ring. Linda was a great teacher and explained the whole process with patience and enthusiasm, the small class size making the lesson feel personal and very educational."

Linda Sandeman Jewellery responded:

" Thanks Molley for the great review. I loved sharing the day with you. Your pendant is so wonderful and unique. I just love it! x"

"Had a fantastic time doing the jewellery making day. I learnt loads of techniques and had the freedom to play around with them before deciding what to make. I made 3 stacking rings and Linda helped me achieve a really professional finish to them. They look great and I can't believe I made them! I'd definitely recommend the course."

Linda Sandeman Jewellery responded:

" Thank you for the wonderful review. What a lovely creative soul you are. You new exactly what you wanted to make and the design. I’m so pleased you were delighted with the result . Amazing stacking rings. x"

Gill Macey reviewed: 1-Day Jewellery Making Silver Copper Workshop for 2 people

"The one day jewellery workshop was a most interesting and creative day, culminating in an unusual pair of silver earrings, which I have already worn! Both Linda was extremely helpful and patient, especially as my project ran overtime - much appreciated. I had no idea what was entailed in all the differing processes that go into creating this type of jewellery. Absolutely fascinating, and a lovely Birthday gift from my two children. Many thanks, Gill Macey"

Linda Sandeman Jewellery responded:

" Thank you so much for the wonderful review. It was such a pleasure having you there. The piece you made is beautiful!"

"I didn't know what to expect for this course as I had never done a one day jewellery workshop before, but I was totally blown away! Was such a lovely day. I felt very supported by Linda and despite the varying abilities within the group, Linda managed to provide personalised attention and help to each one of us. I could tell that Linda had put a lot of time and energy in to preparing for the workshop, everything moved along fluidly and if there was anything we were unsure about she would be quick to explain in an easy-to-understand manner. There was in general a great atmosphere and the addition of tea and biscuits which is always nice. The setting was also gorgeous, in an old brick circular tower with lots of light and clean space. I was encouraged to explore a new method and as a result I learnt new skills and came away with a piece that I was really happy with. I highly recommend these workshops. Both the full day and the half day. Would be a great gift for both those who have experience with jewellery making and those who have never tried it before."

Linda Sandeman Jewellery responded:

" Thank you so much. It was such a pleasure having you there. Your ring is amazing. One thing I love about teaching is seeing the student design a piece that I haven’t seen before and then work on it together to make it a reality. Had such fun with you all. x"

Sheila Hira reviewed: Half-Day Jewellery Making Workshop

"We had a fantastic half day on Linda’s workshop last month. It was a birthday present from my friend who I came on the course with. Linda really made us feel very welcome. She was extremely encouraging and gave me the chance to make a wonderful pair of earrings that I thought I would never be able to create something so beautiful specially as I was a beginner. Can’t wait to go again. Thanks Linda for a great day. Look forward to coming to another workshop. x"

Linda Sandeman Jewellery responded:

" So pleased you enjoyed it! For someone who said they had no creativity id definitely say that is not the case. Your earrings are beautiful and I love the design. The contemporary ear wires really suit your design. Look forward to seeing you again. x"

Sally Machin reviewed: 1-Day Jewellery Making Silver Copper Workshop for 2 people

"Went on a one day course a few months ago, enjoyed it at the time but looking back I feel slightly cheated. I don't feel the instructor, Linda, completely connected with us or have us each enough direction or attention. I think having 4 people on the course was too much for her and the time available. We were all pushed into doing quite a lot and the day overran by over an hour, because of this my pieces were rushed and aren't properly finished with lots of small scratches and imperfections that wouldn't be there if the day were properly prepared. I was surprised the £100 didn't cover the core materials, this is an unavoidable hidden charge. I wouldn't go on one of three courses again"

Linda Sandeman Jewellery responded:

" Dear Sally, I’m so sorry to hear you didn’t enjoy my workshop. I do appreciate your feedback and hope you do give me the chance to make it right. I would also like to take this chance to comment on your points:- 1. Re not connecting: I’m sorry you felt that there was no connection, and enough direction and attention. It is so important to me that students have great time. Feedback has always been positive but I take your comments onboard. 2. Re hidden costs: It does state in the description that materials are not included and how much you can expect to pay. 3. Re over running: I do overrun on occasions but this is more an exception than the rule. I do hope you don’t judge my workshops by this one experience. My Facebook reviews show another side to my workshops and a lot of happy students. I strive to create an experience that is fun, relaxed and really positive. Please feel free to email me with any questions or comments. Thanks again for your feedback Linda"
