Quite Contrary Jewellery at Cambridge Open Studios 2017

See Cambridge jeweller Mary Hinde at work in her studio this July. Put the dates in your diary!

Enjoy a warm welcome and sparkly things galore! Visit my studio this year to:

  • See precious stones and gems from all over the world 
  • Learn how techniques such as enameling, etching and hammering can make unusual and unique creations
  • Have a leisurely browse and get some inspiration for your Christmas shopping (but there's absolutely no pressure to buy - just look if you like!)

I also undertake repairs, remodelling and restringing so if you have a much loved but unworn piece that needs some attention do bring it along.

My studio will be open this year on four weekends between 11am and 6pm: 1-2 July, 8-9 July, 15-16 July, 22-23 July and I look foward to welcoming you.

Some comments from happy clients:

"The parcel arrived safely on Christmas Eve, and I was delighted with all the alterations and the way you had resolved the problems with each piece to improve it. Fantastic! My husband looked on as I unpacked each gorgeous little bag, and there were plenty of nods of approval! Thank you so much! -- J.S., Essex

"When my Grandmother passed away I inherited her 18ct gold wartime engagement ring. The band and setting had been worn down to a wire after of many years being worn next to her 9ct wedding ring. I had been told by two jewellers that it was beyond repair but Mary was able to make a new band and repair the setting to make it stable again. It's now one of my favourite things to wear - a happy ending for a ring that saw more than 50 years of marriage!" -- N.W., Suffolk

"I want to tell you how pleased I am with the necklaces, in particular the light green jade where you have made an ugly necklace that languished in a box, unworn and ignored into an item of beauty. The silver works so well with the piece and a matching bracelet made from the surplus beads is a bonus. I have worn them daily and they have been much admired . Thank you." -- M.D.
