Gail Florio - Jewellery Tutor
Tiaras & Wedding Jewellery, Beginners Beading and Taster Classes including Fascinators.
Previous Qualifications & Training:
All of my Jewellery and Tiara training has been through short courses like those run at the London Jewellery school, so I am mainly self taught but have certainly put in the hours over the last 5 years! I do however have a Btec with merit in Millinery from Kensington & Chelsea college.
How I got involved in making jewellery:
I found a bead shop in Dublin when I was 12 and haven’t stopped since!
Things I have done:
I have an honours degree in Spanish, French and International Trade. I have lived in Ireland, England, Belgium, France and Spain. I’ve been a recruitment consultant, training manager for a life coaching company and an editorial assistant for a publishing firm! I’ve run the London Marathon and climbed the Great Wall of China!
Things I do now:
I work in Training & Development for a Management Consultancy during the day, by night I run Florio Designs which sells tiaras, brooch bouquets, fascinators and hats as well as jewellery. I teach at the London Jewellery School…and I attend as many courses as I can!
My biggest achievement so far:
Seeing my first project published in a magazine and it making the front cover!
Things I hope to achieve in the Future:
Write a Bridal book. I have ideas already!
Three words that describe me are:
Sociable, glitzy & creative
I am inspired by:
My students – everyone comes out with something different.
