I originally attended a ring making workshop of Wendy’s and then became hooked – so much so that I was prepared to travel an hour each way to get to one of Wendy’s regular weekly workshops. Wendy is incredibly skilled, knowledgable and patient. If you are looking for an amazing craft to take up – then silversmithing has it all – my friends have been amazed at the jewellery I’ve created ! Her workshops are great value for money!
A silversmith and tutor, Wendy Murphy from WMM Silver designs makes bespoke and off-the-peg items in sterling silver and gold. Much of her custom comes from collaborations with her clients to make highly personalised and customised gifts for others. Including her customers in the design process is highly rewarding process for both. As a qualified and experienced teacher, Wendy also takes her workshops and courses around the country to provide local events, earning herself the title “The Travelling Silversmith”. Complete novices can learn about the history and technical processes behind silversmithing to produce their own sterling silver rings, bangles, pendants or whatever they choose to make. Wedding couples can make their own bridal rings in silver or gold under Wendy’s instruction. With over 10 years’ experience delivering Adult Education silversmithing courses, she was also awarded “Outstanding” status from OFSTED and won “Creative Business of 2016” from The Women’s Business Club. In her spare time Wendy paints pet portraits in watercolour on commission, walks her dog in the Forest of Dean and is a keen long distance swimmer.

I attended one of Wendy’s Bangle making workshops and loved it! I now have a super bangle to commemorate a big milestone in my life. Wendy is a lovely lady and very knowledgeable about her subject. She broke the steps down and made it easy for us to do it all by ourselves. It was a great way to spend a morning with some lovely ladies that I’d never met before. Using the blow torch thingy was quite exciting and hammering the bangle was a great way for us all to release a little bit of stress and tension. If you get the opportunity to attend one of her workshops – go for it. I first heard about Wendy because she’d made a necklace for someone I know using their business logo. Everyone I’ve spoken to is pleased with their bespoke orders.
I met Wendy through Robin Waite and so glad I did. As well as being a lovely, positive and supportive person, she makes gorgeous bespoke jewellery. I commissioned a spinner ring for myself with a rose gold spinner and my sister-in-law loved it so I got one for her birthday too – made to measure. Wendy has also made me a cute smarty pendant with my name on it, and several things for friends and clients of mine. She’s done a lovely job of making pendants with people’s business logos on, too. I like to think of Wendy as my personal silversmith 🙂 Highly recommended!

I used Wendy on several occasions to create bespoke gifts for my family members. On every occasion, she created an amazing piece of jewellery that is now loved and cherished by the recipient. Thank you.
I’m totally in love with my gorgeous new bangle. Can’t wait to add to the collection <3
Gorgeous craftsmanshipBy Janie - February 14, 2018
I wanted a way to wear my logo. The design looked perfect for a piece of jewellery, and I love silver. I had thought of having it on a chain as a heart pendant and was so delighted when I met Wendy and could talk about it. She really went the extra mile to make it exactly as I wanted! Everyone notices my beautiful necklace and I wear it virtually every day. I’d definitely commission more things to be made by Wendy, she’s amazing at what she does – and a pleasure to do business with.
