Ask me about nomad life here

I completed my second course in silversmithing and jewellery in London, through the fantastic courses at Vannetta Seecharran’s School of Jewellery Design. The first course was a great introduction, laying the foundation for tougher projects. This one was a master course in stone setting over five weeks. I learned how to make a bezel and how to make a tube setting. The first bezel took me nearly three weeks, but the second took me only two and a half hours last night.

The tube setting was my favourite. Despite the fact it is a bit fiddly, it was far easier for me to grasp than the bezel at first. I finally got over my nerves with regard to the mechanised polisher, too…giving the two other rings a professional shine.

I hope to take more classes and use the beautiful new studio space.
