Welcome from Alda of Gemiprecious Jewellery Designs
What started as a hobby has now taken over my life. I am fully self taught, except for a day course on sterling silver soldering and sawing. I started out using plastic or glass beads, then moved to using gemstones.
Over the last 7 years I have added to my skills including learning pearl knotting and chainmaille. Much of my time away from my day job is now dedicated to silversmithing. I love the creativity involved in using sterling silver. The only boundaries to silversmithing is your own skills.
I am constantly learning and developing my skills (mainly through my many mistakes). But I love the process!
Happiness is handmade!
