Silver jewellery workshop by Michelle Johnson at The Biscuit factory.

Lisa Empson, artist in residence at York Place Gallery, recently attended a brilliant silver jewellery workshop presented by Michelle Johnson.

“I opted for a whole day workshop, though Michelle does taster sessions and half day workshops too.  What a great time I had.  Michelle is so patient and the atmosphere was so relaxing.  I thoroughly enjoyed learning how to emboss jewellery and solder pieces together, eventually producing a pair of beautiful silver earrings – hand crafted by myself!!”

I can’t wait for my next silver jewellery workshop with Michelle.  Who knows, I might eventually be able to include them among the work I showcase for sale at York Place Gallery!

Two practise pieces where I learnt how to use the hammered and embossing effects. Next stop – learn how to inset pieces of sea glass!
