“My intention is to create a world class online jewellery school, where enthusiastic amateurs or professionals can be introduced to the world of jewellery. This is my first introductory course. It’s appropriate for enthusiastic amateurs or aspiring professionals alike. I’m expecting people ranging from interested hobbyists, career changers, professionals wanting to improve their knowledge – right through to members of the boutique high end jewellery trade. Through my course I can teach you wherever you are in the world.  I’m anticipating students from Europe, the US and Asia and beyond.  I’m doing this because I’m passionate about sharing the real stories behind jewellery and ensuring future generations are appropriately educated the world over in this fascinating subject.”

You will be asked to complete a short assignment at the end, which Joanna will mark.
