Who are we ?
La Vidalerie is a 300 year old farmhouse in the beautiful Aveyron in SW France and is the base for our jewellery making holidays and a home for our handmade jewellery & findings making business.
Handmade Findings & Jewellery -
Karen has been passionate about making jewellery for over 25 years, a frustration in the quality and range of commercial findings available made her start making her own - with Tim's help this has grown into the large range of handmade findings & charms available on our website. All of these are designed and made at La Vidalerie.
Jewellery Making Holidays -
We are in our 5th year of running a wide range of jewellery making workshops, from beading to silversmithing, Karen's many years of teaching adults combined with her love of jewellery making make it easy for her to pass this enthusiasm on to others - just have a look at some of the feedback from our students.
