What got me into working with gold and silver?
I always new I was more creative than academic although it took some time to get there.
A couple of years at John Lewis on their management programme gave me a great background in selling, display and general merchandising. A course at secretarial college, (all the rage in the 70's) gave me computer skills. You may not think this would be an obvious skill in jewellery making but believe me, the paperwork, book-keeping and general correspondence is enormous.A qualification in horticulture made me realise that creating beautiful spaces for others was satisfying, fun and above all using the part of my brain that lit the rest up. All good basics for the next step.
