Learn how to design jewellery like a professional with the experts at Hatton Garden’s Holts Academy. Discover how the right design process can help you reduce the cost of your materials, set higher prices, sell more pieces and create collections that reflect your style and personality.

Design is a fundamental part of any jeweller’s skill set. Learn how to hone your design skills and you can create pieces that work as part of your collection, are more commercially viable and are more likely to sell.


In this course you will be taught how to develop your ideas, turn sketches into final designs and create pieces that suit your materials budget. You will learn the fundamentals of technical drawing: this skill enables you to work out the exact cost of materials and price before you start making and means you can amend designs to dramatically reduce costs. Finally, you will learn professional methods of present work to clients on paper, meaning you can more effectively commission and secure the bespoke sales.
