Angela Smith's studio/ workshop

My workshop is situated in the quiet rural location of Seighford, Stafford. Just 3 miles away from the M6.

Last night I opened up my studio for a jewellery making workshop, I am always amazed at how many different ways the same beads can be used to make jewellery, and each workshop is totally different, last night the group started by making earrings and necklaces but as the evening progressed keyrings and mobile phone decorations were being made, even these designs were evolving as it went along, the key rings were being made by threading beads onto a long headpin and then attaching this to a key ring, by the end of the evening beads were being threaded onto coloured leather , the beads were held in place with a spring end which was then attached to the key ring - totally unique and individual!
