Kate Mitchell reviewed: One day silver jewellery making in Worcestershire.

"I was given a voucher for a jewellery day with Jonathan for Christmas and finally got around to using it last month. Having never made my own jewellery before I was convinced I'd not be able to make anything much, but Jonathan was brilliant at teaching me the tricks of the trade and I came away with a set of beautiful silver stacking rings and all my trial designs in copper! The day was so much fun, and I can't wait to go back for more! Thanks so much for your help and expertise Jonathan!"

Salt Way Silver responded:

" Thank you for your very kind words Kate. It was a good day and great to see your confidence develop. Good luck with your future jewellery making skills Jonathan"

Shelley Phelan reviewed: One day silver jewellery making in Worcestershire.

"I recently attended a silver jewellery workshop day that my husband bought for my birthday with my friend Betty. What a brilliant day we had. We were both complete beginners and were slightly nervous but with Jonathons' skilful tutoring we were confidently filing, using the blow torch and polishing our jewellery. I made the stacking rings and Betty made earrings. I can not recommend the workshop enough. The setting is beautiful and the calm and relaxing environment was just perfect for learning new skills and being creative. Thank you Jonathan for such a great day."

Salt Way Silver responded:

" Thank you Shelley - Lovely to meet you and Betty. Well done with your jewellery making. Look forward to hearing how you get on with your own jewellery tools. Jonathan"

Jeszemma Garratt reviewed: One day silver jewellery making in Worcestershire.

"We have had the best time making each other’s wedding rings. Every last thing was perfect; the location, the tea, the whole experience nwas top notch. Jonathan’s expertise and calmness was a perfect balm in the middle of wedding-planning chaos. Seriously, I would recommend everyone makes their own wedding rings on this boat, you get to spend the day away from wedding madness and be calm and you get to make something with love for the person you love. I cried a little when I saw how much love and care he put into making mine, I will cherish it forever. The one I made for him is pretty amazing too!! We were both slightly nervous as we were complete beginners, but Jonathon made sure we felt supported and comfortable . He filled us both full of confidence and knew when to sit back and when to step in. We are delighted with our rings, they are unique and really high quality, I can not recommend this day enough and we will remember it always."

Salt Way Silver responded:

" Thank you Jaszemma I am so pleased that you are happy with your rings and that you enjoyed the day making your wedding rings on the boat. It was great to see you working together and laughing. Thanks also for the tips - I have put them in the long term plan! Best wishes for the big day. I'm sure it will be amazing. Jonathan"

Shoena Jones reviewed: One day silver jewellery making in Worcestershire.

"This was arranged as a 21st present for my granddaughter, Kate, and we had a fabulous day. Jonathan’s instructions led us gradually to being able to create memorable pieces of jewellery. Regular infusions of coffe and cake also helped and the setting finished off a great day. This will definitely go on my present list for other members of my family - that means I can also have a go at another piece."

Salt Way Silver responded:

" Thank you Shoena for your kind words Great to meet you and your granddaughter. Well done with the silver jewellery making and you are more than welcome back any time Jonathan"

Craig reviewed: One day silver jewellery making in Worcestershire.

"Had a great day, Jonathan was very welcoming. Marcelle and I both made pendants, I don’t think Marcelle has taken hers off since we got home. The day was so much fun and the time just flew by, it’s safe to say I have a new hobby and the shopping list for tools and equipment was made that evening. We will definitely be returning to make some rings next time. P.s. I don’t write many reviews, service / experience has to be either dreadful or fantastic, congratulations Jonathan you and boat have topped the fantastic list."

Salt Way Silver responded:

" Thank you Craig and Marcelle. I'm glad you enjoyed the day and I look forward to hearing more about your developing jewellery making skills. Jonathan"

"Great day, very patient tutor. I really was a novice and have been able with assistance to bring home a bangle I am proud to wear. Jonathan introduced us to different techniques which we were able to practice before working with the silver. Highly recommend, lovely location and the cakes were delicious."

"An absolutely fabulous day out making silvery jewellery with the very patient and accommodating Jonathan Kettle. Superb and very impressive end products made in silver after a morning practising in copper and yummy carrot cake and tea all in beautiful surroundings on the canal in Droitwich. I would thoroughly recommend this course to everyone. Thanks Jonathan for a lovely day."

Ann Goddard reviewed: One day silver jewellery making in Worcestershire.

"My daughter Hannah and I booked onto the course for Hannah’s birthday and had such a great day. Jonathan is friendly, welcoming and a very patient tutor. The boat is well equipped and comfortable- and Jonathan even moved it to a shadier spot in view of the recent hot spell. We had great fun working with the copper wire and trying out new techniques ready to start on our rings after lunch. We at both really pleased with what we achieved and inspired to try more. A great find and one we would both recommend"

Salt Way Silver responded:

" Thank you Annie, it was a good day. Well done to both of you. I hope you both enjoy further jewellery making adventures! Jonathan"

Laura reviewed: One day silver jewellery making in Worcestershire.

"This course was one of the best I have been on (and I am racking up a fair few craft courses now!) Jonathan was a great teacher for the day, and I really can't fault it. By guiding us through the copper wire exercises we were able to confidently give the silver bangle making a go, which have turned out looking very professional. Friends and family have all been impressed when I have shown the final creation off. What I think adds to the fun of this course is the brilliant setting of the canal boat. You can be inspired by nature whilst trying to concentrate on being creative!!"

Ros Kelson reviewed: One day silver jewellery making in Worcestershire.

"I spent a marvellous few hours (it was a birthday treat) with my sister and niece making jewellery under the expert guidance of Jonathan. The location was perfect - peaceful, quirky, inspiring and fun (I want a narrow boat now!), and Jonathan was an excellent teacher - very good at explaining and showing us how to do things and very patient. (He also makes excellent coffee!). We started off making chains and charms with copper to get the feel of jewellery making and getting to understand the processes involved. After a break for coffee and cake we set about making silver bangles and it was great fun. We are all delighted with what we produced - it is very satisfying to make your own piece of jewellery. I would highly recommend this course."

Salt Way Silver responded:

" Dear Ros, many thanks for your kind words! I think we all had a good day. I was very impressed with your texturing method and hope to use it myself in the future - inspired by the footprints of the local wildlife? Good luck with your future jewellery making Jonathan"

Veronica Grindley reviewed: One day silver jewellery making in Worcestershire.

"My sister, my daughter and myself spent a wonderful day last Sunday on the silver jewellery boat (which is a great venue!). Jonathan was very patient and an excellent teacher. I really enjoyed learning how to make copper chains, links and charms before making a silver bangle (which I'm wearing as I type). We tried out several different skills and it was really interesting to understand the different processes that are gone through to get to the completed bangle. The boat was moored in a pretty spot with a walk through trees and a wildflower meadow to reach it. We sat on the bank to eat our picnic and watched other boats, cyclists and walkers go past through the day. At one point a family of swans came visiting (four very young cygnets) and the adults tapped on the window. I went away with a smile on my face and am very pleased with what I managed to produce. I would really recommend a day out on the silver jewellery boat. Many thanks Jonathan!"

Salt Way Silver responded:

" Dear Veronica, thank you for your very kind and thoughtful words! It was a great day and you may be pleased to hear the cygnets are still thriving and whizzing about. I'm very pleased you are enjoying the jewellery and hope you might go on to make some more. Great to meet you and your family. Jonathan"

Tracey Parsons reviewed: One day silver jewellery making in Worcestershire.

"I went with 2 friends on Saturday and to say we had a good time is an understatement , we had an amazing time. Jonathan started us working with copper wire , making chains and jump rings , which ended up for me being turned into a bracelet and key ring. Whilst having tea and cake we chose what we wanted to make , all of us choosing different things. This wasn't a problem for Jonathan and he helped us all, guiding us to our beautiful finished jewellery . A wonderful way to spend the day learning a new skill thank you Jonathan Tracey"

Salt Way Silver responded:

" Dear Tracey, Claude and Karen - it was a great day, I relished the challenge too! Hoping you are enjoying your jewellery and I wish you good luck in your future jewellery making. Many thanks for your very kind words Jonathan"

Helen Bingham reviewed: One day silver jewellery making in Worcestershire.

"My daughter and I had a lovely day on Saturday on the Silver Jewellery Boat. It is a cosy narrow boat moured on the canal in a lovely spot. Jonathan was a really good teacher and very encouraging as I have never handled tools of any kind before. We practised on copper to start with and then moved on to silver. We both produced a silver pendant which we were very pleased with. It was a really relaxed and friendly atmosphere with plenty of drinks and cake. I can thoroughly recommend the day. Thanks a lot. ."

Lesina Ashfield reviewed: One day silver jewellery making in Worcestershire.

"My sisters and I have just spent 2 brilliant days, as a complete beginners, aboard The Silver Jewellery Boat under Jonathan’s careful and encouraging tuition. We came away with a collection of copper and silver bracelets, rings and key rings that we were all thrilled with. The whole experience was SO relaxing. Not only is Jonathan a great teacher but he is a perfect host, providing regular soft drinks, tea, coffe, cake and biscuits! We enjoyed lunch, sitting in the sunshine alongside the canal watching the wildlife and listening to the birds. Look forward to returning and introducing family and friends to this amazingly inspiring and relaxing experience! Thank you Jonathan!"

Rowena Wright reviewed: One day silver jewellery making in Worcestershire.

"What a fantastic experience making jewellery. My sisters and I had two days in the first few days of sunshine this year on Jonathan's boat making Copper and Silver jewellery pieces. He was a patient teacher and took us through the key skills prior to making our own. Coffee, Cake and juice was supplied to keep us going it was such a relaxing two days with the sun coming through the windows and lots of fresh air. We will definitely be coming back for more with our daughters later on in the summer."

Bridget Moore reviewed: One day silver jewellery making in Worcestershire.

"My sisters and I have just finished two days on the Silver Jewellery Boat with Jonathan and have a wonderful bangle and ring, of our own design, to show for it. We have had a brilliant time and can't recommend it enough as a fun, creative experience. We were complete beginners but Jonathan was a very patient teacher and supported us in producing some lovely peices of jewellery. It was a delightful setting on the canal. We will be back with friends and family. ?"
