Professional Stonesetter Leanda has worked in the Jewellery Industry for over 35 years, starting as an apprentice in the trade, learning a wide variety of techniques for Fine Jewellery, working in mass production Jewellery at the start, then moving into working on high end Jewellery commissions from 1994.
Her experience has contributed to her becoming a highly skilled Stonesetter who has worked for several prestigious companies such as Charles Green & Son amongst others.
In 2000 Leanda started her own Jewellery Business in Birmingham Jewellery Quarter with business partner and Setter Jeanette, where as a team they create and set private commission Fine Jewellery and offer Stonesetting services to the trade.
Leanda has also taught Stonesetting short courses as a visiting tutor on occasion at the prestigious School of Jewellery Birmingham City University and as trade commitments permit she teaches students in her traditional trade workshop.
Tutor Course Notes
As Bespoke courses are individually tailored to suit you, castings and stones which are essential for practise are not included in the course fee. This is because you may like to bring your own items and stones to set.
If you prefer to buy stones and silver casting to practise setting direct from the tutor you must make a request IN ADVANCE of your course, so that the tutor can order them for you.
Courses for 2 persons are available up request.
