About the class
Have you ever seen an adorable necklace or bracelet and thought, “if only it was in a different colour”? Have you ever spent hours looking for the perfect pair of earrings to match your necklace? Have you found that must have bracelet, but it’s too small/big. You can get that perfect match, colour and size when you make it yourself.
After making a few simple pieces to learn the basic techniques, we’ll focus on making what the group is interested in. If you’ve ever wanted to have a go at making chandelier earrings, bevel settings or multi-strand necklaces, this could be your chance.
But beware, bead collecting is addictive and you could end up with a lovely display.
About the tutor – Kath Pfitzner
Growing up in a creative, make-do family, it was just natural that I learnt how to craft from an early age. Over the years, my enthusiasm has waxed and waned for one craft or another – as is quite evident from the amount of various stuff I have collected – but I have always made jewellery.
Transforming a pile of beads into a one-of-a-kind piece of jewellery or bling is incredibly satisfying. It’s also a craft that can be as simple as stringing beads, or involve intricate wirework. It’s up to you. For me, there’s always a new skill to learn, or a new idea to follow up.
As a tutor, I love watching my students’ confidence grow as they master new skills, and I’m always amazed by the creative ideas they come up with.
