Artisans create by hand. With an expertise in a given craft, artisans are on par with artists in skill and creative flair. Their creations can be functional or strictly decorative, varying from sculptures to handmade clockwork. With an overwhelming majority of our products mechanically manufactured in industrial factories, artisanal products are difficult to come by, let alone artisan practiced. Christine Smalley, designer and founder of ‘Etelage’, finds this trend unfortunate and encourages individuals to harness their own skills, bringing unique personality to their work.

Christine’s vision of quality over quality, or artisan over mass produced, underpins her workshops in jewellery making. In her Earring Duo workshop, fiddle with vintage and modern crystals, beads, cameos, stones and brass filigree whilst you design and create two pairs of earring pieces in just ninety minutes to take home.

Embrace your inner designer and trust your style whilst linking, wire-wrapping and twisting beads and charms from an extensive range of both vintage and modern crystals, cameos, stones and brass filigree. Design earrings that both accentuates your assets whilst remaining unique and creative.
