Event description

Description

Hand-knotting pearls and basic wire-working are skills that anyone can learn to make jewellery with fantastic results. No prior experience is required to complete this workshop and beginners are welcome!

Evanthea will guide you through the process of stringing, knotting and finishing your own personalised pearl bracelet with toggle clasp closure, as well as creating a pair of pearl drop earrings using silver wire and pliers. You will be provided with all the tips and tricks of the trade, including how to keep your pearls looking their best for many years to come.


On The Day

All necessary tools and materials are provided at the workspace for use on the day, including 11-12mm cream potato pearls with statement ridges and rings, real silk thread, a sterling silver toggle clasp, sterling shepherd’s hooks and headpins, and a beautiful velvet pouch to store your new jewels in.

A traditional Ploughman’s Lunch with teas, coffee and cakes is provided - please get in touch before booking if you have any food allergies.

Pearls, silk thread and other tools and materials are all available for purchase at our workshops, so that you can continue to practice your new found skill at home if you would like.

This workshop involves intricate hand and eye work; - bring your best prescription glasses if you need them, and make sure that your fingernails are not too long to be able to tie the knots.
