Pearl Bracelet & Earrings Workshop
Time & Location
About the Event
Making pearl jewellery the traditional hand-knotted way is a skill that anyone can learn with fantastic results. No prior experience is required to be successful in completing 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 necklace 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 available for purchase at all of our workshops, so that you can continue to practice your new found skill at home.
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!

There is an array of Brisbane's best cafes and shops surrounding the workspace; - make it a day out in Paddington and bring along your favourite person.
