Silvar Design partner with Create and Craft
Create and Craft are thrilled to announce that they will be working in partnership with Silvar Design who will be launching on the channel with their first live show airing on Wednesday 3rd April.
Silvar Design was formed in 2004 by Mark Vardy. Mark, originally a micro-electronics engineer, made a decision to attend silver jewellery night classes and quickly found a love for all things made of precious metal. The business was originally set up to supply beads and jewellery components from its own retail premises but since 2015 has been designing jewellery kits ranging from simple elasticated bracelets and earrings to more intermediate techniques like macrame and kumihimo braiding. Mark’s latest company development has seen him offering a variety of masterclasses in their teaching studio in Stoke – On – Trent.
Mark Vardy, Proprietor of Silvar Design, commented: “We are delighted to be joining the team at Create and Craft giving us the chance to reach a wider audience, extend our current jewellery kit and supplies range and educate crafters in the beautiful art of jewellery making.”
Anya Ilic, Buyer at Create and Craft, commented, “We are pleased to welcome Silvar Design into the Create and Craft family. Whether you are new to jewellery making, or experienced in this craft, there is something for everyone! This is an exciting time for the Jewellery category and we are looking forward to Silvar Design being part of the journey.”
