Wedding Day Silver Training

Its day 2 of the Wedding Day Silver traingin course and Jean Whitfield and Janette Mannell have been kept very busy by tutor Denise learning all the technical skills needed to become Wedding Day Silver designers in their local areas. After the first day of learning the art of preserving leaves and flowers from wedding bouquets they were both very tired, especially Jean who had been up since 3am as she had to catch a flight over from Ireland! They have already started making and we are looking forward to seeing how they come out as each piece is always completely unique. We will post the photos at the end of the week!

Here are some pieces made by the most recent members to join Wedding Day Silver Sue Ashby covering  Manchester & Cyprus and Helen Thomas from Wales.

If you think you would like to be part of the Wedding Day Silver team and become a self-employed jewellery designer you can join one of our 4 day training courses. Our course in August is already full but look out for the next one. However, if you are keen to become a jewellery designer but not within the Wedding sector why not come to our Clarise Jewellery Designer Certification Course instead, where you can progress through 3 levels and are encouraged to find your own style but will receive all the skills tuition you need.

Website Updates

We have been very busy these past few weeks and have been doing a bit of work to the main Clarise Jewellery website. The courses page had a tidy up and you can now see all the jewellery making courses we have to offer, all the descriptions, prices dates and even a picture all together, we hope this will make it easier for potential students. We have also done a few little tweeks to the rest of the site and you will also notice Art Clay Silver is back in stock in our online shop- hooray! Go check the website out and let us know what you think.

Whilst you are online why not check out the Metal Clay Today designer's competition. Denise has entered her piece 'Hard Wood N Silver' and it fits the brief perfectly of jewellery just for men as this dark wood inlay ring is very masculine. If you want to vote for it please follow the links on the website:
