So I recently had the amazing opportunity to attend the “Make your mark” event put on by the London Assay office for aspiring jewellers. This event put lots of contacts, trade stands, talks etc all in one place!
I spent the last few months attending a silver jewellery course where I have learnt the basics of silver smithing for jewellery making!
I attended with the rest of my class and met a few few folks from the advanced class too!
The event was held at Goldsmith Hall where I just fell in love with the fancy-ness of the building!
I didn’t realise until I left that you weren’t meant to take photos! Oops!
After we left the event we headed off to the Hatton Garden area of London which is a jewellery lovers paradise! I didn’t know where to look!
I also purchased some unearthly and beautiful looking labradorite beads and a string of in your face 10mm round opalite beads!
I then had the most amazing lunch at a place down Leather Lane called Tongue & Brisket!
They do sandwiches, but they are the most amazing sandwiches stuffed with the meat of your choice!
I went for chicken schnitzel on rye bread and had a side of chips, but the salt beef and roast turkey looked amazing too!
I think it was family run which only makes it cooler!
I need to go back there for sure! Mmmmmmm……..
Anyway here are a few pics from the day! Scroll to the bottom for sandwich pay off! 😉
