Wire and Pliers and Beads, Oh My!


There’s a lot that goes on in our jewel world. Our everyday routine involves a whole bunch of chain, beads, and sparkle, but one of the main ingredients to our bowl of jewel dreams are our workshops! We love giving you the tools to spark that imagination and nothing prides us more than seeing you proud of your first accomplished piece.

These workshops have been running for quite some time now. We’ve had the honour of hosting your bachelorettes, your anniversaries, your birthdays, or even your date nights and we’ve decided that it’s time to stir things up a little bit. We will still offer our workshops (and alcohol!) for any occasion but the type of workshop you book depends on your vibe and the experience you’d like to have. Our new workshops will be divided into 3 levels:

Beginner 

The beginner beading workshop is catered to creators of all ages! In this workshop, we will guide you through the process of making your own beaded piece. Think of it as a meditative jewel night. Choose your beads (plastic or semi-precious stones available) and string your way to jewel town.

 

Intermediate

This workshop is where we teach one of our classic techniques called wire-wrapping. This is the magic that adds sparkle, jewels, and charms to your piece. We use this technique in many of our pieces in store, you’ll get the chance to search through our treasures (or bring some of your own!) and create magic!

 

Advanced

So now you have the skills it takes to make your own jewellery! In our advanced workshop, you get to add to your repertoire by learning how to stamp (hammering letters or numbers onto a flat metal piece) or how to work with leather (Finishing leather with clasps or chain to turn into a necklace, bracelet or other types of jewellery). Additionally, we’ve added 30 minutes of extra time to work on those masterpieces.



So whether or not you’re new or from our Kensington days, we invite you to explore your creativity with us as we embark on this new jewel journey!

Can’t wait to see what you create
