The Art of being a maker!

Makers take raw materials and transform them into objects of desire. It is an art form, it is a craft, and it can be taught.

Come and experience a workshop with Masterful Makers. In as little as 2 hours you can walk out with a piece of handmade jewellery crafted by yourself, a luxurious leather bag, a stunning knotted mala, or your own personalized luxury skincare products.

I am Victoria White, a one-woman dynamo/mad scientist/designer, & maker of crafts. Coming from an Art History background, my love for art, the history of man, and pretty shiny things came together while being pregnant with my daughter and working for the Museum of African American Art in Florida. I fell in love with African trade beads. They were historical in context, heavy with human drama, an artefact, an antique, pretty, and were relatively cheap. Pairing the few trade beads I had with semi-precious stones and sterling silver wire, I began to make my first wrapped earrings for fun. It was very therapeutic and relaxing until my husband at the time saw the box of earrings I had made, took them to work, and presented me with a box of money that afternoon, after having sold them all to his work colleagues! And that is how all this madness began. That was a bit over 25 years ago. And here we are now.

I am not your typical jeweller. I aim for grand pieces with fabulous stones, thus the term rockstar. The rocks I deal with are sparkly and precious. I own and manage Gems, Rocks, Bling in Sydney, working from my Surry Hills studio. I specialise in bespoke one of a kind pieces featuring precious stones & metals. I also facilitate jewellery classes for groups and individuals.

My first love is of course jewels, but leather is a close second. I revel in the feel of beautiful buttery leather and discovered I loved creating items from it when I decided to make and design packaging for my jewellery.

Victoria was an amazing teacher for my 11-year-old boy, who came to her class for the day. She was patient, full of knowledge and made the experience a great one. Highly recommend her class for anyone who has a keen interest in jewelry making. We will absolutely be booking another class again. Thank you, Victoria!

The class was so fun and we learned so much! Class size was small so we’d had a lot of personal instruction. Instructor was knowledgeable, welcoming and fun! She gave us tea and played fun music and even used two different techniques to accommodate for the desires of the other two taking the workshop. We learned both a traditional silver shaping method as well as a metal clay method. Would recommend this class to anyone!
