I spent 3 days at the rainforest gems learning silversmithing with Aura and Lawrence and had a wonderful time! They were very thorough with their teachings and explanations of tools and skills in silversmithing. They were both wonderful hosts and incredibly warm inviting me into their home for lunch and tea everyday. A booklet was included in the package that gives great detailed information on where I can purchase tools for how much and where they are coming from, an incredibly valuable tool for me on my silver smithing journey. Highly recommend this experience and thank them for their hospitality.

I have just spent the weekend completing module 1 & 2 learning to Silversmith and setting jewellery with Aura and Laurence from Rainforest Gems.
I am very pleased with the level of skills and knowledge that was given to me over the 3 days by such dedicated and wonderful people. This training has given me the confidence and understanding to further develop my skills working with silver and gold creating and designing jewellery.

Thank you Aura and Laurence for this most rewarding experience.

"I’m starting to gather some tools so I can get cracking in creating, and I was wondering if you’d be able to tell me where you get your white fire bricks from?

Thank you both for last weekend, I had a great time.
Many thanks, Ashley"

"I attended a weekend jewellery course at Rainforest Gems recently. It was fabulous. I learned exactly what I needed to start making my own jewellery, and enjoyed every minute. In the two days I went from having no experience at all, to walking away feeling confident and ready to start constructing my own designs. I enjoyed the weekend so much that I plan on going back to learn more. Wonderful teaching, a wonderful experience, and worth every cent."
