Alas, Valentine’s Day is fast approaching and with it comes the influx of the biggest advertising push of the year so far, with flowers, romantic meals and bubble baths-a-plenty on every platform going. From heart-shaped cupcakes, to pink champagne and a dozen red roses, it’s hard to avoid the overload of clichés that the most romantic day of the year brings.
Thus, as always, we at The Amazing Blog set ourselves the challenge of finding an alternative way to celebrate Valentine’s Day – particularly for those single gals among us! Not wanting to gate-crash a candle-lit restaurant, nor being thrilled at the prospect of a one-off special Valentine's Day viewing of Baz Lurman’s Romeo & Juliet - bound to be chock-full with canoodling couples - we decided to look further afield.
Happily, it wasn't long before we stumbled across the London Jewellery School, the UK's largest independent jewellery training centre based in london's most famous jewellery quarter - Hatton Garden. They have a huge spectrum of classes to chose from including both day workshops and evening classes, and with over 20 world-class jewellery tutors and two fully-equipped jewellery studios, there's something for everyone at London Jewellery School.
And getting in the mood for all things love-themed, the London Jewellery School is putting on a three hour-long workshop this Sunday, perfect for anyone wanting to make their loved-one, or indeed, themselves, a timeless trinket. For just £45 + VAT participants will be guided by a professional jeweller in how to make a solid silver 'Love Heart' style charm using a fantastic material called metal clay. At the end of the session all those taking part will receive a finished silver charm to take away in a lovely gift bag all ready to present to your Valentine. or, in the case of a singleton, yourself!
