Emma joined us from Laings Jewellers and spent a week with Scott, learning all things Stone Setting, with a flurry of repair techniques added in for good measure.
We asked Emma a few questions about her experience at Vanilla Ink. We wanted to share with you what it was like from a trainee's perspective here at the school.
Why Vanilla Ink?
For years I have followed Vanilla Ink and always loved the events, support and great opportunities they have provided. And then when I found out Scott had joined (having worked with him before) I knew it was the best place for me to continue my learning as I tend to doubt my skills. I find it easier to work with people I know will support my learning and push me to achieve the best I can.
How did you find your time in Vanilla Ink?
Awesome (as expected)! The support and comfortable environment not only makes it easy to learn and put you at ease, but you also get the chance to meet and work alongside some fab people.
What have you learned?
This time I was focused on learning all different types of stone setting. That included rub over, claw, pave and flush setting, as well as a whole host of other hints and tips to make my life easier as I continue my setting practice in work.
