About This Workshop

In this class, you will learn the basics of making earrings. Experienced jeweller Claudine McPherson will teach you about various metals, tools, jewellery components and findings, and where to buy them in Melbourne. You will learn how to use jewellers tools, and make a simple pair of earrings with pearls and glass beads to take home with you. If there's time, we'll cover also wire wrapping techniques.

Important: Bring your glasses if you use them. Good manual dexterity is required, as well as extreme patience.
