STUDENT STORIES & TESTIMONIALS
(Ex-Student and founder of Harwood Goldsmiths)
(EX-Student and Jeweller at Carat Jewellery )
Asher enrolled into PMGS straight from Secondary School. As a young learner, his desire to meet his own goals and aspirations saw him practice his craft to a very high degree of accuracy over his three years of study. His attention to detail and a passion towards his design aesthetic contributed towards Asher being placed with the prestigious Goldsmith Jewellers, Carats Design Jewellery. Later Asher branched out to start his own company, Freeman Design. Asher has worked on several major projects and has secured copyright approval with Warner Brothers for a jewellery box that is styled in the shape of a golden “Snitch” featured in the Harry Potter films.
“I heard about Sewtec from a friend who was running her own apparel business, studying here was the best and easiest decision I’ve made. The tutors care about your future and take time to ensure you’re getting the most out of your training while studying towards industry recognised certificates.”
Amber started her education with a firm goal of having her own practice. During her final year of study, she started her own business, AM Stone, designing and making bespoke pieces for friends, family and other commissions. After graduation Amber continued to develop her skills in a commercial setting as a Junior Designer with Jewellers Workshop in High Street.
“When I started I couldn’t sew and now I’m designing and sewing my own garments for my own clients. The tutors here are amazing, they are very helpful and friendly and always available when I get stuck. The premises are really spacious with lots of light and modern machines, I love this place!”
As a first-year student of only 120 hours of learning, Sameer entered the International Jewellery Fair Awards in Australia in 2017 and was placed as a finalist. He continued his time with the school in a similar fashion, learning and defining his style as a Goldsmith. After graduating Sameer auditioned for the prestigious Goldsmith, Sutcliffe in Parnell. Sameer was shortlisted from 3 applications and was successfully placed. He is set to learn and develop into a Goldsmith with considerable talent in his new position.
“I own an online business supplying activewear internationally. I recently moved to a wholesaling model with blank activewear and recognised the need for practical training to help me design new products to meet trends. Sewtec was what I was looking for. The tutors are so knowledgeable and I love the way they teach you in a way you can understand”
