Course Description

Upcycle Jewellery Making

 

Have you ever wondered what to do with your old beaded necklaces - old fashioned, broken, or just not ‘you’?

 

Use your creativity to make something beautiful, funky or vintage (or all three) from bits and pieces found in charity shops and the bottom of your button box. If you have some beads you particularly like, but are not keen on the style of jewellery they are part of, this is a great opportunity to make something new.

You will learn some basic jewellery making techniques on this course, as well as designing skills to make a beautiful necklace, bracelet or a pair of earrings.

 

Materials to make one necklace are included the price, but some solid silver chain, semi-precious stones or antique charms may incur small additional costs.

 

The course will provide beads; chain and tools for you to work with, but you are also welcome to bring your own.

 

Meet the Artist Kate Montefiore

Kate Montefiore has been making and teaching jewellery making for many years, but the idea of up cycling goodies she finds in charity shops is a relatively new idea. With a very good eye for colour and texture, Kate will work with you to make thoroughly beautiful jewellery that no one would image was made from charity shop pickings!

 

Kate designs her own up-cycled jewellery using beads and charms she finds in charity shops.

Venue - Palmerston Adult Centre Barry
