Today I had a jewellery making workshop and the people who took part were blind or partially sighted. I was quite nervous about taking the class but I am so pleased that I did it. The people were so friendly and lovely and they made some beautiful pieces of jewellery.

There was one guy who was totally blind and he made a wonderful wooden necklace in perfect sequence and he was soooo funny. A real joy to teach:)

Looking forward to next weeks class.

I went to the V&A Museum yesterday and found the amazing Room 93!
I have been to the museum so many times but I never make it upstairs after viewing all the wonderful pieces on the ground floor.

But at a Wire Jewellery class that I attended last week at City Lit College, I was told that I had to visit Room 93. Intrigued I went as soon as I could and I was simply blown away, I made my way around the room which host over 3000 pieces from jewels by Cartier to animals by Faberge.

The diamond tiaras were my favourite they sparkled like stars in the moonlight light in the dark room. I will definitely be back for another jewellery fix very soon.

If you love jewellery and haven't been GO NOW lol!
