I've always enjoyed making things and working with my hands, so that when one day I stumbled upon an old jewellers' work bench and tools going cheap, it felt like one of those opportunities in life too good too miss!

Whether teaching or guiding, showing people a few tricks of the trade is something I love doing as I hope to inspire them to start their own jewellery adventure!

Where you'll be

We've got a small, but great working space in the heart of vibrant East London where you'll get the chance to use all the basic tools any jeweller needs to get started. Once you've made your masterpiece, we'll be getting public transport into Hatton Garden to start the tour!

This was such a blast! Rod taught us all to make rings and they look great! Let's you do it yourself but also makes sure you get a truly beautiful thing out of it! Teaches a bit about modern jewelry as well. Thanks again, Rod!
