My big new project: introducing Mastered

For the last couple of months I’ve been working on a secret project which I can now unveil. Mastered is a place where creatives can get access to the world’s best teachers, take online courses and secure exclusive career opportunities to help grow their business. It’s pretty exciting stuff – there’s nothing out there like this. I really hope that you like it.




There’s a couple of things I’m particularly proud of:

We’ve put Hatton Garden-quality teaching online for the first time, ever. Holts Academy have a strong heritage in London and people across the world can now learn how to cast, at home, without the need for expensive equipment. It means jewellers wanting to up their game can, in their own time, on any device.


• We’ve brought Diana Springall, the first lady of embroidery, online. As a tutor, lecturer and artist she is in-demand across the world and she’s a very, very special lady. And on this creative embroidery course, you can have direct access to her anytime of the day or night and learn her unique way of designing and stitching.


• We’ve partnered with Hand and Lock, one of the most incredible heritage brands in this country: the 250-year-old embroidery company work with everyone from Louis Vuitton and Kate Moss to the Queen. On this tambour beading course we teach milliners, fashion designs, embroiderers, jewellers and all manner of designer-makers to bead in the same way as Parisian couture houses do.


I’d love to hear what you think of it – if you have any thoughts, feedback and advice please do let me know on perri [at] mastered [dot] co. And, because you’ve all been so good to me over the last few years, I’m delighted to be able to give my blog readers a whopping 25% off all courses until the end of January. Just use the code THANX.

Ooh this Fair Trade jewellery is most lovely


I’ll admit Fair Trade stuff might be A Good Thing, but it isn’t always beautiful.

Fortunately, Just Trade exists. One of my bestest friends bought me a piece from the site (one of her friends owns it), and I wear it ALL the time.
