At Vannetta Seecharran School of Jewellery, our focus is on teaching people how to become creative designer-makers.
Our school offers professional training and short courses tailored to suit beginners and advanced students. We teach traditional hands-on techniques together with a contemporary approach to design, and our students learn from highly experienced lecturers who can provide real-life insight into the world of jewellery.
We deliver courses that challenge and stretch your ability and expectations. Steeped in centuries-old methodologies, our approach to teaching cultivates a sense of curiosity, encouraging creativity and enriching the learning experience.
Our aim is to help every aspiring jewellery maker to tap into their own creativity and realise their dreams and ambitions. This supportive and nurturing environment is the perfect place to begin that journey.
“It is not a case of leaving with items one might be proud to wear, but to leave with the skills to continue to design and make jewellery for oneself and others in the future” Student, J Harvey
We are specialists in the field of jewellery making and jewellery education. Our lecturers are practicing designer-makers, so you can be assured that you will receive a high level of teaching and practical experience.
We provide a warm, supportive and creative environment. Our lecturers encourage all students to express their creativity through jewellery making. There is real joy in making beautiful pieces by hand and they share that enjoyment.
Located at the heart of Hatton Garden, the traditional jewellery quarter and creative heart of London, the school benefits from easy access to public transport.
Our studios are equipped with an extensive range of silversmithing and professional jewellery-making tools to enable a fully rounded learning experience.
Courses are practical and hands-on, ensuring that students are armed with strong making and design skills to support their continued progression following completion of their courses at the School of Jewellery Design, Vannetta Seecharran. We support students who want to set up their own studio or continue to higher education within the field.
My son Sean completed this course in December 2018. He really enjoyed it and his finished pieces were fabulous. Linda was an excellent tutor- friendly, helpful, knowledgeable and invested in helping Sean complete each piece to the best of his ability. She made the whole experience really enjoyable. He is definitely keen to do more. Thank you.
The Btec Diploma Level 3 has taught me many skills that I didn't know I could do. There is also creative idea development within this course which has expanded my design skills. The teaching of jewellery manufacturing is extremely thorough and I can highly recommend this course.
I'm currently on a year long course with Vannetta as my tutor. It's a tough course but really good to increase your design and making skills. The focus on design skills is crucial to setting you apart from other makers. I'm enjoying the course even though I also have a full time job to balance with the jewellery workload. I highly recommend VS Jewellery School.
