Welcome to Verchiel

My name is Rachel Smith, I am based in Royal Wootton Bassett Nr Swindon,  where I run a wide variety  of  Jewellery courses, both online and in person.  Workshops are suitable for beginners and experienced beaders.  

You can purchase jewellery making supplies and kits here, also from Create and Craft Tv and also from my facebook group (link below). 

Please join me for my FREE weekly Thursday tutorial times in my facebook group, where I demonstrate new techniques every week and also have a giveaway for one lucky winner. 

I have a live hours show on Create and Craft Tv, normally every 6 weeks, where I love to design and bring new kits to crafters and jewellery makers. 

I also run a selection of courses each year at Marlborough College Summer School and you can now make bookings directly with the College for this year.
