Lisa reviewed: Private or private group silver jewellery making / silversmithing workshop half-day at Silver Designed Personally

"Sara was lovely!! I booked an afternoon session to create a personal, handmade item to give as my family Secret Santa present. I am so pleased that I took the chance and booked a session - I have no creativity (!) and no previous experience but now I have a gorgeous pair of earrings and I completely loved my afternoon. Initially, Sara made me tea and we talked about possible designs of the earrings. Sara guided me through the process and we came up with a totally original design! I loved using all the tools and learning about the different silver techniques- the time flew by and Sara’s gorgeous little dog sat happily watching us throughout. I loved my afternoon and will definitely be back. Thank you so much Sara."

Kathryn Gale reviewed: Private or private group silver jewellery making / silversmithing workshop day at Silver Designed Personally

"Brilliant one day course. I chose to make a leaf shaped pendant, probably threw Sara by choosing an unusual leaf but she didn’t baulk at all. She was so patient and explained everything so well. Nothing was too much trouble and I’ve gone home with a necklace to be proud of. Thanks very much Sara"

Silver Designed Personally responded:

" Thanks so much for your wonderful review Kathryn, you made a lovely pendant and were a pleasure to work with.... and I leant a new plant too!! Beautiful shape. Thanks Sara"

Gail Clarke reviewed: Private or private group silver jewellery making / silversmithing workshop half-day at Silver Designed Personally

"I chose to attend a 1:1 workshop with Sara to make a memorial pendant to match an existing piece of jewellery. Sara is patient and takes her time to explain each process and tool. Within 2 hours, under Sara's excellent guidance I was able to achieve far more than I expected and left with a beautiful pendant in memory of my dad. I can't recommend Sara enough."

Silver Designed Personally responded:

" Gail, thank you so much for your review and it was a pleasure to help you make your lovely pendant in memory of your Dad - such a lovely idea."

Jacqueline Rees reviewed: Private or private group silver jewellery making / silversmithing workshop half-day at Silver Designed Personally

"I bought this for myself to make some personal gifts for Christmas. I booked the half day bangle session. I would throughly recommend this. Sara was friendly and welcoming from the start and was patient and supportive throughout making me feel confident by modelling the techniques and guiding me through each part. I’ve done a couple of silver courses before but this was far superior and completely bespoke to me. Sara was an amazing tutor who made the session so enjoyable and made me feel super confident and we actually made a ring as well as a bangle during the session. They turned out so beautifully that I’m keeping them instead of giving them away for Christmas!! I will definitely be going back to make some more items and can’t recommend this session highly enough. 5 stars - thank you Sara!!"

Silver Designed Personally responded:

" Jacqueline - thank you so very much for your amazing review, I loved our time as well and what you made was just perfect! You have some great skills and I can't wait to see you again to make some more!!"

"Absolutely brilliant course booked for me by my daughter as a birthday treat. From the moment we arrived Sara made us feel at ease and very welcome. She was supportive and encouraging of our efforts and encouraged us to work independently whilst being on hand to guide and step in if needed."

Silver Designed Personally responded:

" Thank you so much for your review Naomi ...... you were both great students too .... looking forward to maybe seeing you again to try something different :-) Sara"

Julie Watt reviewed: Private or private group silver jewellery making / silversmithing workshop day at Silver Designed Personally

"A wonderful,fun day designing and making leaf earrings. Sara is really friendly and instantly made me feel at ease. All the different steps and processes were clearly explained which meant that I felt confident in my design (am not arty!!) and in using the various pieces of equipment. I came away having learnt a lot, having had a great experience and with a pair of earrings that I am really proud of. I would definitely recommend Sara's workshop days."

Silver Designed Personally responded:

" Julie, thank you so much, you were a model student too! and as I said on the day .... the best piecing saw skills I have seen in a beginner :-). I had a great time working with you and seeing the results of your work. Sara"

"Sara adapted the day especially for me and I was able to produce a beautiful torque bracelet, a bracelet made from my silver sugar tongs, a ring made from my silver spoon and two tiny rings for my granddaughters. Sara guided me through the course with skill & encouragement and I learnt so much. I really enjoyed my day which included a lovely lunch & playtime with Sara’s lovely assistant Misty. Thank you so much ?"

" Pauline, thank you so much, it was an absolute pleasure and I'm looking forward to creating some more things with your spoons a t some point in the future. Sara"

Hazel White reviewed: Private or private group silver jewellery making / silversmithing workshop day at Silver Designed Personally

"My one to one workshop with Sara, trying my hand at silversmithing was a totally satisfying and enjoyable day. The studio is well equipped, and organised and I tried several interesting techniques with Sara’s experienced guidance. She is an excellent teacher, relaxed yet purposeful and was very open to helping me achieve a piece of my own design. I was so pleased with the pendant I made, would love to go again and thoroughly recommend it."

Helen reviewed: Private or private group silver jewellery making / silversmithing workshop day at Silver Designed Personally

"What a treat. I was a little nervous going on my own but had a fabulous day. Sara is really welcoming and the one to one tutoring is excellent. It’s harded than you think so it was great to learn new skills and make a unique piece of jewellery; when people admire it I can say I made it. Sara’s workshop and gardens are so pretty and relaxing and it was a pleasure to meet Misty the dog. I would really recommend this day out a real treat."

"There's magic at the bottom of this lady's garden. Spent a very enjoyable and productive day with the incredible Silver Designed Personally. I have always wanted to make a pair of my own earrings and the teacher was so helpful and inspiring. Lovely setting too! Great 'sandwich' lunch and supply of green tea. Would recommend this experience as a unique and creative day!"

"I had a great time at the silver leaf jewellery making day with Sara, so wanted to post a review! If you enjoy making things and want to try something different this is perfect for you. Sara took me through all the steps and let me try all sorts of tools (flame torch was a favourite for me!). The day was very insightful, fun and I came away with a beautiful leaf pendant. Sara is an awesome tutor who is really friendly and encouraging and I can't not mention her workshop and garden which are absolutely gorgeous!"

Lesley Curtis reviewed: Private or private group silver jewellery making / silversmithing workshop day at Silver Designed Personally

"As I had such a great service with a bespoke trinket box from Sara, decided to treat myself to one of her workshop days. As a complete novice and not used to using tools I was a little sceptical that I could make a wearable piece of silver jewellery in only one day. I needn’t have worried, Sara was so patient and helpful, the day was a delight and I came away with a beautiful pair of leaf earrings that were all my own work. One to one tuition was superb, no waiting for help. Sara is a delight and easy to talk to, she made me very welcome and at ease. Such a great experience, I will be buying a couple of gift vouchers as Christmas presents for special friends."

Celina Nowak reviewed: Private or private group silver jewellery making / silversmithing workshop day at Silver Designed Personally

"I attended the Silver Designed Personally Workshop a few weeks ago and it was an excellent experience. I was impressed by the location of the studio as it is a truly magical setting. Also, all the equipment is brand new which is a lovely environment to learn in. The teacher is very patient, friendly and knowledgeable. This is more than a class, I would recommend this experience for anyone who has an interest in jewellery making but also to anyone who is looking for a fun day outside of London in a magical environment."
