WHAT STUDENTS SAID
''It’s been an absolute joy to work with Sandra. She is an inspiring, creative & conscious individual who truly cares about our planet and has taken huge steps to ensure her own vegan jewellery business is as ethical & environmentally friendly as it can be. I was looking for someone special to help me with my own projects, creating beautiful jewellery in an ethical way using sea glass from my collection.. Sandra fitted the bill perfectly! I learnt so many new, traditional & varied silversmithing skills & techniques, as well as learning a wealth of information about the origin of the materials we use & the practices involved. I would highly recommend working with Sandra as her passion & enthusiasm is infectious and her attention to detail, care and guidance is second to none. You will not be disappointed.''
