Jewellery Retreats

With my commissions, bespoke jewellery design experiences and retail opportunities established, I’m excited to launch the Cornovii Silver Jewellery Retreats in 2022. Jewellery design and silversmithing has had a profoundly positive impact on my wellbeing and life in general, it would bring me so much joy to share this with others.

 

Four or five days in gorgeous Cornish accommodation, inclusive of all the silver you’ll need as well as a gemstone for the beautiful jewellery you’ll create. The chance to delve into your creativity with jewellery design and making, and plenty of relaxation to suit.

 

The venue, Sunny Corner on the South Coast of Cornwall, is located in the Pentewan valley close to the fishing village of Mevagissey. A 300+ year old 5 bedroom cottage, set in 3.5 acres of gardens and woodland with an outdoor heated pool. Surrounded by beautiful Cornish scenery, both woodland and coastal, the perfect spot to getaway.

 

A weekend to de-stress, achieve and create, all in great company and fabulous Cornish surroundings.

 

A wonderful gift perhaps, or a treat for yourself. A luxury jewellery retreat for the soul.

 

The 3 night stay, plus all jewellery activities and your unique items, is £455

For 4 nights, it’s £597

Your Tutor

I can't wait to share my passion of jewellery making with you. I am an experienced teacher and jewellery designer/maker. I'm inspired by all things natural especially the sea and coastal scenery. My work incorporates both gold and silver as well as precious and semi precious gemstones. My favourite metal to work with is silver and I adore labradorites and tanzanite.

 

During your stay with me, I will teach you the basic techniques of silversmithing and making jewellery in silver. Then we will build up to more complex techniques and stone setting. You will go home with several pieces of jewellery - will you keep them all or gift some to family or friends?

During the course you will be supported and challenged to get the most out of your time in the studio. The days will be structured with demonstrations, observation and experimentation both individually and in small groups. Tuition is adapted for each individual, meaning you will work at your own level and create pieces that are truly personal.
