Eco-friendly Jesmonite Jewellery Workshop

Learn how to make your own unique pieces of beautiful, eco-friendly jesmonite stone jewellery. Join Vicky of Promises Promises in her garden studio, where she will share tips and tricks that she has learnt from 8 years working with jesmonite. You’ll come away with a new skill and 4 pieces of colourful jewellery.

You will enjoy tea or proper coffee and homemade biscuits (or a cheeky glass of wine if you prefer) as Vicky demonstrates different processes to help fire up your creative juices and get the best out of the materials before you get into designing.

Choose to make stud earrings, earring charms or necklaces, in 8 different shapes. As for colour and pattern - the sky is the limit! Once you are happy with the designs you’d like to make, your host will be on hand every step of the way as you cast your 4 pieces of jewellery.

The final step of the process needs to happen at least 24 hours later to allow the stone composite to set so you will practice on some older pieces before receiving your designs in the post with all the equipment you need, ready to finish these at home.

What to expect:

  • Make four pieces of jewellery in this 2.5 hour workshop
  • Learn about stone composite and how to use this amazing material for jewellery-making
  • Spend some time designing your jewellery to get the best results for your final pieces

While there, she started making jewellery in her spare time, soon realising that expressing her creativity through design was all she wanted to do. Since striking out on her own she has built Promises Promises into a successful design studio selling her unique jewellery internationally.
