Create your own eco-friendly jesmonite jewellery

Learn how to make your own unique pieces of beautiful eco-friendly jesmonite stone jewellery. Join Promises Promises owner and professional jewellery designer Vicky Myatt in the studio.

You will:

  • Make either four necklace pendants or four pairs of earrings in this three hour workshop
  • Learn about stone composite and how to use this amazing material for jewellery making
  • Prepare a mould with different types of findings and make earrings or necklace pendants
  • Mix and dye the composite to create your own unique colours
  • Learn three different casting techniques - apply them to your pieces to create a range of patterns
  • Discover how to sand and seal your jewels to create beautiful finished pieces

Your host Vicky is a big believer in the power of bringing people together through the communal experience of making. Whether your workshop is with friends or people you have just met, you will be sure of a warm and friendly welcome in this interactive workshop. Vicky will be there with you every step of the way, helping you, answering any questions and sharing her years of experience as a jewellery designer.

Please note that as the jesmonite takes 24 hours to dry, you will be taught the final step in the class, but will finish your own pieces at home 48 hours later when you receive your set jewellery and finishing materials by post.

Please note - this workshop is held at the Prior Shop in Cabot Circus (not the Old Market store). The address is 23 Philadelphia Street, Quakers Friars, Bristol BS1 3BZ

Vicky Myatt (She/Her)

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.
