Valentines versus Galentines. Which would you choose?

We’re having a debate in the LJS offices at the moment about which will be most popular – Valentines or Galentines.

We have our traditional Valentines day evening taster workshop on 14th February (6.30-9pm) for couples to come and make each other a silver ring. It has always been a popular option and is a great alternative to dinner, flowers and chocolates.

However, in 2018 we added a Galentines evening taster workshop to the schedule and that was also popular! Galentines day was made popular on the show Parks and Recreation and has since become a day to celebrate friendship.

On our Galentines class two friends will each make a silver pendant that they saw in half to keep one part for themselves and to give the other to their friend. It’s a fab celebration of friendship and anyone who wants to give it a go is welcome (you don’t have to be gals).

So which will be the most popular this year? Time will tell.

Valentines Special Jewellery Class: Make a Solid Silver Love-Heart Charm

Roses are red, violets are blue, silver is forever like my love for you… For something extra special this year why not pop along to the London Jewellery School and make your loved one a unique, silver ‘Love Heart’ charm? 

In a fun three-hour long workshop you 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 you will have a finished silver charm to take away in a lovely gift bag all ready to present to your Valentine.
You can come alone or bring your partner for a lovely shared experience. The workshop sizes are small and there are limited spaces so early booking is recommended. Absolute beginners are welcome and all materials are included in the cost of the course at just £45 (exc. VAT).
‘The Valentines class at LJS was a excellent way to spend our valentines morning together, we made each other a silver charm and we have been wearing them every since’
