“This was such an excellent course. Angela was super knowledgeable, helpful, very kind and really patient. I would take the course again with her in a heartbeat. Despite me actually accidentally ruining my work, she helped me start again and make something I really like.
Also her personal work is AMAZINGLY BEAUTIFUL”A satisfied participant
ABOUT THE TUTOR
Angela is a local jewellery designer and maker who makes bold contemporary jewellery from recycled and ethically sourced sterling silver, using traditional jewellery making techniques.
Initially, she made jewellery for her own pleasure – she still finds the process engrossing. With the encouragement of friends and family, she created Ange B Designs in 2016.
Ange works as a physiotherapist and often references the day job in her jewellery design process. “I like people to feel that they are getting a handmade silver jewellery item that is unique to them.”
Her aim is to make ethical jewellery that is as sustainable as it is beautiful. Where possible she re-uses scrap sterling silver to create new work. In an age where we all want to be “a bit different”, and in an attempt to shun the mass-produced, she believes in quality over quantity – that is why her unique silver jewellery pieces are completely handmade, unusual and timeless.
