Live jewellery workshop to raise money for charity

Woodbridge Jewellery Workshop are holding an open day on Saturday March 14 to celebrate their first year anniversary.

As part of this, craftsman jeweller Rick Chapman will be creating a beautiful sapphire and diamond necklace worth over £800, designed especially for Blesma, in just one day.

Usually, such a bespoke piece would take around 16 hours to make, but Rick will endeavour to complete it in just half that time, and in front of an audience, at Woodbridge Jewellery Workshop which can be found at 80 Thoroughfare, Woodbridge.

Members of the public can enter a draw on the day for a chance to win the necklace for a £5 donation which will go to Blesma to help support injured service personnel.

If they would like to enter the draw but can’t make it on the day, donations can be made in advance on a Justgiving page with one draw number allocated for every £5 donated.

Community fundraiser at Blesma, Hana Goodman says: “I’m really looking forward to seeing the result of Rick’s handiwork at the end of the Open Day, I’m sure he will produce something really special. Please show your support for Blesma and for local businesses by coming down to the Woodbridge Jewellery Workshop on the 14th of March.”
