Hi I’m Lucy…

I know that making jewellery isn’t as easy as it looks, believe me, I have been exactly where you are right now. It wasn’t just learning skills the right way that was the problem, but procrastination and motivation used to drive me totally insane. And don’t even talk to me about that feeling of utter uselessness when things didn’t go to plan. But I want let you in on something, this journey – it really can be fun, engaging and rewarding! I promise.

Hopefully see you over in the forums very soon for a chat

Yes you will need specific tools for this class, we have included a basic tool list above, and the course contains detailed tool handouts together with product codes for all tools used during the class.

Unfortunately, we can’t provide a specific answer to that questions.  It depends on the tools you decide to purchase and the quality.  We try to include as many options as possible in our classes so that student’s can make choices based on their budget, but we will be honest, tools are not cheap.

The videos are only playable through the website and so are not downloadable.

Absolutely you can!  It would be pretty tough to work with your laptop on your workbench.

If you do want that little extra support, don’t worry at all – that is one of the main reasons why we launched our membership.  Lucy, Vennice and the team will be active in the forums daily to help with any problems you might be having with the classes.

Unfortunately not at this stage, however our handouts that accompany the videos have extensive, easy to follow instructions.
