Sara reviewed: Rings and Things - Soldering for beginners at Simply Amazing Jewellery School

"A really enjoyable day and amazing how much progress I made in just one day, having never handled jewellery-making tools before and attempting lots of new techniques - all achieved with Viv's help, useful information and encouragement to try things by myself. I'm delighted with my rings...not perfect but uniquely mine, and all the more precious because of that! Thanks Viv"

Simply Amazing Jewellery School responded:

" Thank you Sara! It is amazing to see complete beginners develop confidence with each challenge met. You have done really well to achieve so much, you have a lot to be proud of. Thank you for coming, you and your sister made a great team x"

Sam reviewed: Wax carving for complete beginners at Simply Amazing Jewellery School

"Session one was a great introduction to the craft. We started with some simple exercises to develop an understanding of how the wax would behave in different scenarios before moving on to crafting something to be cast. We were a really small group which allowed for great one on one interactions with Viv the instructor. We were allowed to use the time as we wanted and to build up an understanding of techniques that were valuable to us. I'm really looking forward to the second session to refine some of the skills from the first."

Simply Amazing Jewellery School responded:

" Hi Sam, thank you so much for this, we have so much more to cover but I hope by the time we finish, you will have enough information, confidence and skill to know how to create the projects you want to make! I really love working with wax, the challenges it presents show - this ancient art continues to have relevance in a modern environment!"
