Description

Learn the basics of jewellery making while up-cycling vintage pieces into a new charm bracelet, necklace and a pair of earrings!

Emma’s passion for the natural world informs her work. This passion is incorporated into sustainability principles within her contemporary jewellery and business practice. Emma has taken part in The Repairs Workshop, a collaborative investigation into the concept of ‘repair’, as a part of the State of Design Festival. She has also established The Treasury, a monthly workshop, run from her studio in Melbourne’s Nicholas Building, in which jewellery lovers are invited to bring in broken or unloved pieces to be fixed or re-imagined.

First, we will cover the techniques, terms and tools of fashion jewellery making. Emma Grace will then guide you through an exploration of your personal style and the design and creation of your very own bespoke jewellery to take home. All materials and tools will be provided.
