Maker's bio

I began my journey into Silver Metal clay whilst running a pottery studio in 2012 and soon became hooked! The magic of turning a piece of clay into a solid piece of Hallmark Silver never fails to amaze me and I love sharing this with my students and helping them create a lovely piece of jewellery that they can wear proudly home makes my job the best. I hold a Higher Diploma in Silver Metal Clay and am a senior metal clay instructor and glass teacher. I have been teaching for over ten years running classes from my studio in Market Bosworth and many jewellery schools and galleries all around the Midlands area. I am a member of The Guild of Jewellers and am on the education committee of the alliance of metal clay. I also hold a Gold student choice award. One of my proudest moments was visiting Tokyo and seeing one of my pieces displayed in the Silver Accessories Exhibition. I would love to meet you on one of my courses so please book as soon as you can. Louise x

Jemma reviewed: Silver jewellery taster

"A wonderful half day spent in Louise's studio, creating beautiful pieces of jewellery using shell moulds, seaglass and metal clay. Louise is a very patient tutor, pitching the instructions to suit 3 generations (and helping us fix the bits we broke!) My 7 year old said "she is very helpful and nice to children and grown ups!" Would thoroughly recommend choosing a course with Louise :-)"
