S ondi’s custom-made jewellery is well-loved and collected not only by Blue Mountains cognoscenti but by lovers of beautiful contemporary jewellery Australia-wide.
Sondi’s schedule alternates between busy solitude when she works on her speciality lines, and the sociable weekend workshops held monthly, when she shares her skills and her excellent workshop with 4-5 people who wish to learn about jewellery making. No previous experience is necessary.
Recent participants expected to make one item of jewellery each over the two-day work-shop—usually this was a beautiful silver ring. In just the first day, Andrew completed and embellished an elegant man’s ring and both participants had set about designing and, under Sondi’s knowledgeable eye, actually completed unique pieces of silver neckware and an art deco brooch.
Sondi enjoys these occasions as much as her protegées, sharing in their excitement at learning a new skill and their pleasure on leaving with a professionally finished piece of jewellery.
