Elizabeth Bone – Inspirational Jeweller and London Jewellery School Teacher

This week we are shining the LJS spotlight on the extremely talented and inspirational Jeweller and tutor Elizabeth Bone.

Elizabeth is inspired by all things modernist, architecture and interesting collected objects, all of which comes across clearly in her work which consists largely of silver, gold and precious metal designer pieces.

After studying a BA in Crafts Combined Studies – Wood, Metal, Ceramics, and Textiles, Elizabeth gained a Crafts Council training grant, which led her to work for artist-jeweller Wendy Ramshaw as her principal workshop assistant for over 10 years. In 1991 she established her own studio whilst continuing to work part time. She now runs her own business designing, making, exhibiting and selling jewellery, has just finished writing a book about silver jewellery and of course teaches regularly at London Jewellery School.

Elizabeth has been with LJS since the beginning back when we were called Dulwich Jewellery School and based in a small room in south London. She was the first traditional silver jeweller to teach with us and has been a core member of the tutors team ever since. Many LJS students who have had the pleasure of being taught by Elizabeth comment on her excellent teaching style and vast knowledge of the subject of silver and precious metal jewellery making.

Elizabeth currently teaches a range of jewellery making classes at LJS including; Beginners Silver Jewellery, Soldering Masterclass, Intermediate Silver Jewellery, the 5-Day Silver Jewellery Intensive and the Beginners and Intermediate Silver Jewellery Evening Classes.

To find out more about Elizabeth and her work take a look at her website – www.elizabethbone.co.uk and her LJS tutors profile; www.londonjewelleryschool.co.uk/elizabeth-bone.

Until next time,

Happy Making
