All the latest news from the London Jewellery School
To stay up to date with all the latest from LJS, including a sneak peek behind the scenes of some of our newest classes, make sure you visit our blog. This week, we held our very first Catwalk Jewellery class with the lovely Zoe Harding. We were blown away by the fashion-forward statement pieces created by the students, made using everything from nuts and bolts to fabric and beads. To see more images from this class, and to keep up with our latest postings, click here to visit our blog.
Ex-LJS student Karena Brown attended our 2 day Resin Jewellery course in November last year and has since gone on to selling a fab range of resin jewellery pieces online via herwebsite. Featuring rings, bangles, necklaces and more, it’s great to see all of Karena’s hard work and the range of pieces that can be achieved using resin.
We love to keep in touch with past students and hear about what they’ve been up to since taking our courses, so if you’ve got a website or blog you’d like to share, let us know about it! We regularly feature past student’s work in our newsletter and on the Alumni page of our website. Send us your details and a link to firstname.lastname@example.org
