Best teacher there is! Not to mention the detailed PDF’s that arrive after the course
The best decision I made was reaching out to Madame Mak Jewellery. This talented boss babe is a wealth of knowledge and support. Her courses are second to none! What started out as a beginner’s class turned into completing all available courses. Dahna is truly one of a kind and has absolutely become a most valued friend and confidante. Not only has Dahna been there for me professionally and helped build my little jewellery business – she has always been there for me as a friend

I love to continue learning and have taken quite a few courses over the years
I can’t thank you enough for the class yesterday and suffice to say I have been at the bench practicing ever since. I went and got a little soldering iron as soon as we finished up yesterday – wow what a game-changer for me! Totally blown away by the manual content – so comprehensive and full of all the info you could ever wish for. So happy to have found and met you. I can see a beautiful smithing/waxing/all things jewellery friendship on the horizon. Thanks so much, darling!

Dahna's wax ring making jewellery course was the best thing I’ve ever done!
I took on the Introductory Lost Wax Ring Carving Workshop. Dahna took me step-by-step thoroughly through absolutely everything that involved getting the ring to its final stage. From the different kinds of wax, how to saw and carve to all the types of equipment necessary to use on wax. Everything was clear and easy to understand, and Dahna is wonderful. She’s so down to earth, hilarious, and makes the best food!!!! And so clever. She’s got tips and tricks you’ll use for a lifetime.
