"I have attended three courses at Nude Jewellery. I had never thought myself as capable of making jewellery but was fascinated by the concept. As a result of Nikki Galloway's teaching methods and the relaxed atmosphere of the class I was sawing, drilling and soldering with the best of them before long. The extent of my newly acquired skills were crystallised before my eyes on a recent visit to the Victoria & Albert museum in London. In the jewellery gallery a video is shown entitled 'Making a Diamond Ring' and whilst I had used an amethyst as the stone for the ring I made at Nude, I was amazed to see as the expert jeweller in the video illustrated each step in the process that I had used the exact same steps to complete my ring! The classes are fun and also productive. I have made several pieces of which I am immensely proud. Nikki makes time for everyone in the class so it can be like receiving individual tuition a lot of the time. I would recommend the classes to anyone who has ever thought how is that piece of jewellery made or just want a creative, fun outlet. I have just signed up for another course - it's addictive!"

"I have been pleasantly surprised at what I achieved in Nude's introduction course - I never imagined before starting that I would be able to wear what I made! The atmosphere in the classes is really relaxed which makes the course fun.....and addictive; making jewellery has become more than just a new hobby."

"I loved Nikki Galloway's jewellery class. Great teacher, innovative and patient. How fantastic to find a jewellery evening class where no time is wasted. Having been shown our tools that are provided for the duration of the course, we are given our first project. In no time I was tracing, drilling and sawing. By the end of the course I came out with a piece of jewellery that I could wear. Nikki is a fabulous teacher, helpful, innovative and above all patient. Her classes are so good I am signing up for my third course this April."

“We had a really fun day making our rings – Nikki was so lovely. And we both still can’t believe how amazing they are. It’s been by far my favourite part of our wedding preparations and the most personal thing I’ll take away from the day aside from my memories. Every time I look at my wedding ring it’ll be a reminder of my husband because he made it for me!”
Lucy White, London
“Making our wedding rings was one of the many hair-brained ideas of my wife-to-be. I was dubious, given my only previous, somewhat disastrous effort at making something ended in a tangled mess in my CDT class at school! Desipte all my fears, both rings turned out brilliantly, with Nikki proving an excellent and patient teacher. A great memorable experience all round and one I would highly recommend."
