TESTIMONIALS – JEWELLERY MAKING BASICS, AUTUMN 2019
Stacey’s class at Cabinteely Community School was full of surprises. Each week we were given a lovely pack of jewellery to make that evening. We made lots of quality items from earrings to necklaces and bracelets. We used different techniques, beads, Swarovski crystals – a great course, thank you Stacey. Julie, Bray.
I really enjoyed Stacey’s class. You make jewellery that you’ll actually wear ! I’m now spoilt for choice with all the pieces I’ve made. I would highly recommend this course. Linda, Leopardstown.
I recently completed a very inspiring course on jewellery making with Stacey Kemp. Every class was amazingly instructive, introducing new techniques at every session. Stacey’s teaching methods are so clear and her patience and encouragement are fantastic. Thanks to Stacey, I am now making jewellery for myself, family and friends! Louise, Booterstown.
I really hope Stacey does an Intermediate course next Autumn in Cabinteely. I for one will definitely be there if she does. I really enjoyed the classes and I learned so much. The jewellery pieces are very wearable. Stacey is a brilliant teacher with patience of a saint. Sheila, Cabinteely.
