Join Brisbane-based jewellery designer Barbara Vine for a hands-on introduction to making your own necklace using washi paper covered shell and crystal beads. Barbara will show you how to apply and lacquer the paper on the shell base and how to assemble the threaded crystals and paper medallion on to a fine ribbon neck band. A kit will be provided as well as instructions, glue, lacquer and beading tools to use during the class.
Please bring a notebook and pen, a small takeaway food container to transport your necklace home, and an apron as you will be working with sandpaper, glue and lacquer. Extra kits will be available for sale on the night if you would like to continue making a necklace at home. Barbara's washi paper based jewellery in available in the Shop.
