    I don't know about rules, but as most people are right-handed, I tend to put the clasp on the right hand side. Often, the necklace can be reversed so it can be done up on either side. If I'm making...

    If you are looking to add large silver-coloured beads or spacers into your designs, than a suggestion would be to use the greek ceramic beads that are silver-fused on top - they are affordable and...

    I'm with you on this Carole. I started a part-time day course in botanical illustration last September, just for the sheer pleasure of creating something that I feel I don't need to try and sell. ...

    I was up in Greville Street last week too and popped into the Bellore/Rashbel shop, which is at the premises of Bellore's at No. 39. I asked who-bought-who out and it appears that Bellore's took...

    I think the member called LaVidalerie is based in France, down south. She runs jewellery courses and holidays as well as selling findings and might be able to help. Worth a PM perhaps?

    I thought the joining fee had been reduced, but the commission upped, so it's worth checking on this as it might suit you better. I'm afraid I don't know anyone on there apart from Carole.
