Learn jewellery design and assembly fundamentals

Over 10 people have attended this class


Do you love earrings?  Do you need more? How many is too many pairs of earrings, can that even be a thing?

Let us spark your imagination and get your creative juices flowing.  

This fun 2 hour class will introduce you to the fundamentals of jewellery making, from design through to assembly using a collection of mixed media items gathered over the year of teacher Nadine Sharpe's jewellery making  exploration.  We have glass and crystal beads, metal, resin and laser cut pieces, recycled and found objects and so much more!

You'll learn all about the basic construction of jewellery findings and components, how to use jewellery wire and crimp beads, how to properly use jump rings and the tools that are commonly used in putting jewellery components together.  This is a perfect entry in to the world of jewellery, and best of all we are using recycled and found objects to spark your imagination!

Come and relax with a glass of wine and let your creativity take over!  You'll go home with a number of finished pieces, as well as the skills and inspiration to explore your environment for objects to keep on creating beautiful things.

Super fun class! Nadine was kind, warm, and very knowledgeable. :) Also very passionate and was keen to answer all my many questions. Made so many earrings in such a short time, wish it had gone a lot longer. Would highly recommend. Thanks, Nadine!

I chose this course to get a brief introduction to one of the many ways of making jewellery. The only problem was, I wanted more. The 2 hour course went way too quick! It was a lot of fun and I hope to get back for more classes.
