Make jewellery from your children’s art

After my first successful order, I am now happy to let you know that I can turn your child’s art into silver jewellery. It’s very exciting as it’s something I’ve wanted to do for ages. So do get in touch if you are interested. Prices will vary depending on how much  silver I need to use, or you could even book a class and come and have a try at doing it yourself! Pictures are of some of the stages involved in creating Lily and Amy’s silver masterpieces. Thanks for your order (young) ladies! Get in touch to find out more.

Original picture is sent over – ideally it needs to be black and white and the white needs to show up more than this one.

Image is inverted
I make a stamp
Silver clay is used to create pendant and image is ‘stamped’ onto it.
Silver is fired (now 99.9% fine silver) and polished. Findings attached and it is sent off to its new home.

What’s been happening and what’s coming up

Once again it has been a busy few months here at CG Crafts, catching up after the summer holidays and now getting ready for (gasp) Christmas! I thought I’d share some photos of what recent students have made and also list the next few events coming up…I am nervously revisiting craft fairs this year, so it would be wonderful to see some friendly faces there! If not there, perhaps you can buy me a wine afterwards to help me recover!!

Classes at other venues

I’ve become a bit more choosy about where I teach over the last few years. It’s got to be beneficial to my students in some way, or there is little point in me loading all my boxes into the car and driving somewhere else I may as well teach my small tailored classes in my garden workshop – those that have seen me pack up at the end of the day know exactly how many boxes I need to load up! One such worthy venue is Simply Handmade based at the Woodhall Business Park in Sudbury. It’s run by Debbi and Colin and Simply the dog who have a lovely premises which is full of colour, lovely handcrafted items for sale and garments awaiting adjustments. Included with your course is a freshly made lunch and a genuinely friendly environment. Oh and there’s lots of parking too. coming up soon is Enamelling (16th March), Silver Clay (20th July) and Encaustic art classes (11th May). All are now available to book on the Simply Handmade website – click on the links above to go directly to those classes. There is plenty on offer, I might have even booked on some of their classes myself.
