Silver jewellery making Workshop Days

"I attended Silver Designed Personally Workshop few weeks ago and it was an amazing experience! I was impressed by the location of the studio as it is a truly magical setting. Also, all the equipment are 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 to anyone who is looking for a fun day outside of London in a magical environment".


"I attended a silver jewellery making workshop with Sara - it was such a good day! I learnt all about how to make bespoke silver jewellery and got hands-on experience of making my very own unique and beautiful pendant. I loved the day and wouldn't hesitate to recommend for anyone who likes learning new skills and has an interest in making things. No need to have any experience as Sara is a very patient and encouraging tutor and made me feel comfortable using different types of tools and techniques. Not to mention Sara's home, garden and workshop are absolutely gorgeous"!


"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"!


"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".


"Unique idea in a wonderful work shop!  Attended the Silver Designed Personally workshop, I had the best day. I learnt so much, Sara was very patient. I made a lovely pendant that I haven’t seen anywhere before! I would recommend this experience to anyone, the environment was lovely and Sara was exceptional."

Bespoke Silver Box

"Sara made me a beautiful trinket box as a Christening present. Only took a couple of weeks to arrive, which as a bespoke piece was very impressive. Superb quality and excellent value for money. Will certainly order again for next grandchild".


"Will be commissioning definitely"!


"I thoroughly enjoyed my experience with Sara at her workshop set in such pretty surroundings, lending itself to creativity! Each step of making my box was clearly explained to me as a relative novice and was encouraged every step of the way without feeling pressured. Would definitely recommend Sara at Silver Designed Personally".

Silver Mortarboard Graduation Cap

"Brilliant idea. Commissioned a graduation cap for my daughter. It is so beautiful and unique. Sara was extremely helpful in getting the right colour tassel to match University colours. Would highly recommend. Am going to get her to make a trinket box as a Christening present".


"So much more interesting than the usual Graduation gifts! And my niece loved that Auntie Susan had helped with the making of this memento. The teacher was so patient and clear in her instructions, a very pleasant experience all round"!
