Meet Isis

Role: Silver Works Teacher and Stone Setting Guru

Classes: Forge a Silver Ring Workshop, Wax Courses, Introduction to Jewellery Making Course, Earring & Pendant Course, One Day Gemsetting Course, Design and Make Course

Isis started her journey into jewellery in 2013 whilst living in Canada. Like most of our students, her first taster was a ring making class which had her immediately hooked. She continued to take part time and hobby courses whenever she could. 2 years of hard work paid off and landed her a position as an apprentice in a trade workshop. She now works full time as a goldsmith, specialising in stone setting. Working in trade has offered her experience in a vast array of techniques and styles in jewellery and has given her a broad knowledge base to bring to her students. You can find her in any of our classes, but her main focus is running the introductory courses and our progressive design and make courses where students come in with varied and creative ideas and always go home with new skills, new knowledge, and of course some stunning jewellery.

Her favourite thing about jewellery is that it is a skill in which you will forever learn something new and will always be pushed to take your practice to the next level. Her students and their ideas are a part of this and she hopes to be able to offer them as much information and knowledge as she can impart from her classes.
