Gemma Andrews reviewed: Stacking Rings for beginners at Simply Amazing Jewellery School

"I had such a great day with Viv. I booked on alone and joined a group of 3 others. We had a great day together. Viv explains things clearly and the day starts slow with copper going through the techniques you're learning. At lunch I thought I'd never get the silver rings made but I made 4 rings really quickly as the instructions previously had been so good. I am really pleased with what I've made. Really recommend the course. We had tea and cakes in the studio and there are lots of places for lunch nearby (although you will want to be quick and get on with the fun). The only thing was the studio was cold. It was one of the coldest days in December so to be slightly expected as it is a studio in a fairly old building. Didn't distract from my enjoyment but maybe wait till spring if you feel the cold!!! Viv - thanks so much! "

Simply Amazing Jewellery School responded:

" Thank you so much for this Gemma, I really appreciate your lovely review - of course, I have to agree about the zero comfort factor in the studio - I am working on a flexible solution, insulation with the ability to ventilate when necessary ☺. You were fabulous, despite the cold, some brilliant work done! Thank you so much, for coming to the event x"

"Viv hosts a wonderful silver stacking ring course. It’s enjoyable, value for money with a relaxed atmosphere. Viv is a wonderful instructor, managing everyone’s questions with ease. She is knowledgeable and can make a jeweller out of anyone. Everyone in my group came away with beautiful stacking rings and a wonderful experience. Thanks Viv "

Thank you for coming along and thank you so much for your lovely review 😊"

"We had the best day! My friend and I did the stacking rings workshop and loved every minute. We made 3 bronze rings in the morning and then 2 silver in the afternoon. Viv was so lovely, encouraging and great to talk to. We came away with rings we love and are really proud of. We're already looking at which workshop to do next year with Viv. Also recommend pudding pantry down the road for breakfast and Crimson Tree next door for lunch. "

Simply Amazing Jewellery School responded:

" What fabulous company you two were - this is such a lovely review - thank you so much! x I like that you have included the local food outlets, there are plenty in close proximity to the workshop - I shall definitely look forward to seeing you both again, I am still amazed at how easily you acclimatised and how quickly you picked up the techniques, most impressed :)) "
