I have studied jewellery making with Nina for a period of approaching seven years, from a complete beginner.
Nina is an excellent teacher with a comprehensive knowledge of both design and technique in all aspects of jewellery. She will also encourage and help students to follow their own ideas and develop their own style once they have mastered the basic skills.
I would highly recommend Nina as a teacher
