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.

Jesmonite can get messy so wear an apron or old clothes. The nearest station is Stapleton Road, which is a ten minute walk away. Parking is free on the street but can be limited in the evening, Devon Road at the top of the street has more spaces. We love bikes! If you arrive by bike we'll be happy to safely store it.
Vicky started out making things so young that she can’t remember wanting to do anything else. Growing up she studied fashion design and worked for boutique British accessory label Emmy London for many years. 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.
Vicky started making jewellery at a difficult period in her life and is passionate about sharing her experience of the positive power of making something beautiful with your own hands. She has been working with jesmonite for six years. Vicky loves the potential of the material to experiment with and create something unique.
