Win With The London Jewellery School - Ends 10/10

I'm like a magpie, I like pretty things, the sparkly the better, so I was excited when I heard that the London Jewellery School was running classes in making your own jewellery.



The courses are run by young successful entrepreneur Jessica Rose who at the age of 24 now runs the largest jewellery making business in Europe. Jessica fell in love with jewellery making ever since leaving school and since she began teaching others how to make jewellery she has never looked back. From humble beginnings in a community hall she now runs the London Jewellery School in Hatton Garden. A few short years later and the London Jewellery School is a huge success attracting 1000's of students and visitors from London, the UK and abroad.






Jessica Rose

Jessica's future looked very different in 2009 when her A level results weren't what she needed to get into her choice of course at University. But Jessica decided to focus on a different plan and the London Jewellery School was born. 

You may be wondering what sort of courses they run at the London Jewellery School. Well they run a myriad of courses for those with simply an interest in jewellery but no experience in making it, to an accredited diploma in Creative Jewellery Making. 


Jessica says, “Jewellery-making can be a very positive experience – it allows you to express your own style and have a creative outlet. When people have stressful jobs or lives, having a creative outlet can be really important to help them cope – taking some time to think about colours and shapes, and the sense of satisfaction you get from making something is really beneficial. It can also give people confidence and real lift."


Jewellery you can make

Prices for courses start from £50 to £4000 for the diploma course, and can be taught full-time, part-time, evening or in the day. In fact there are courses to suit everyone whatever their budget or circumstance. With each course all the materials are included too, all you need to bring is enthusiasm and a love of jewellery. Day classes usually run from 10-5pm and evening classes from 6.30-9.30pm.


Some of the courses are below.

  • Beginner’s Silver Jewellery
  • Pearl Knotting
  • Enamel
  • Fused Glass 
  • Metal Clay
  • Stone Setting
  • Resin and Perspex
  • Tiara making
...and much more.  

The jewellery taster courses are particularly good value for £50, and they seem so much fun. I love the idea of the cocktail ring class, making a silver charm or a pair of chandelier earrings, and I can imagine wearing what I made at a Christmas party. In fact I love the idea of the Gift Vouchers, for a special present for someone who has everything, mum, best friend, wife or girlfriend it would suit most ladies and men who like being creative, after all some of the world's greatest designers are men.

Mel Dawson a student says
“I started with a cocktail ring taster class – I came along with a friend - and made 5 rings in an evening. It was a great way to get some creativity into my life and very different to my day job. The quick results from the class got me hooked so I came back for a make a silver ring class. I couldn’t believe that I could make something in precious metal after just an evening – the tutors are brilliant at helping you to learn quickly. I wasn’t sure I was the sort of person who made things so having a go was a revelation.
Now I’ve done several day classes and have a whole box of jewellery making supplies at home – if I need stress relief or a little lift I can get out my bead box and create a new pair of earrings or a necklace. I’ve definitely got the jewellery making box – which is great for me and for many friends and family who are getting lots of new jewellery as presents.”

Make A Stunning Cocktail Ring

All the courses are taught by professionals but in a fun friendly manner, who knows even a taster course may spark a passion in the jewellery business, you could be the next Jessica Rose.

  2. I would to do the polymer clay bead taster course. I've already done a couple of courses at the school which have ignited a new passion in me. I now have enough beads and findings to open my own shops lol, and I can't stop making beautiful new things. But one thing I can't do is make my own beads. This course would be perfect for adding yet another skill to my arsenal.
