Become the Jewellery Expert you've always wanted to be

By Juliette Perry

Joanna Hardy teaches you how to become a jewellery expert

The world's first online jewellery foundation course is now available with Learning with Experts. You'll learn all the professional jewellers techniques and go behind the scenes into the studios of famous jewellers.

In eight video lessons, each around one hour, you'll discover ways to understand and appreciate jewellery: from how to use a jeweller's loupe, to recognising hallmarks and examples of excellent craftmanship.

Joanna takes you into the studios of celebrated craftspeople, including Shaun Leane and Fred Rich, as well as the workshop of renowned jewellers E. Wolfe & Co. to hear about the processes involved in crafting fine jewellery from the makers themselves.

Pieces from these workshops are complemented by a discussion of historic jewels made by Lalique, Falize and Fabergé, all courtesy of Wartski, as well as the Goldsmiths' Company's highly important silver and jewellery collection.

Five lessons then focus on the gems: rubies, emeralds, sapphires, diamonds and the gem of the ocean - the pearl.

You will discuss the inclusions and characteristics of each stone that makes them so unique and then how they have been famously used in wonderful jewels throughout history, aided by the beautiful jewellery of Bentley & Skinner.

Suitable for everyone, whether an enthusiast or a practising professional in the jewellery trade. Every student benefits from a unique learning environment in which you choose when you want to learn and the level of feedback you would like from me.

We're looking forward to seeing you in the classroom!
