Learn how to make statement chandelier earrings



2 hours Class size 1 to 8 (public classes), 5 to 20

label $115 (or 4 payments of $29 Afterpay)


Learn how to make fabulous designer earrings from linear and drop, to chandelier and beaded fringe styles, which will impress you as well as your friends, in a brand new studio at the Flour Mill Summer Hill.

Choose from a selection of uniquely designed kits using elements from our creative toolbox. Think vintage and modern crystals, glass beads and brass filigree sustainably sourced from Europe with a vintage modern twist.

You will create three pairs of earrings to take home with you.

During this workshop in Sydney's Inner West, you will learn:

  • How you can elongate or soften your face shape just like a stylist by your earring choice.
  • How to link beads and charms together.
  • Professional tips on earring assembly and design.
  • About different jewellery parts and how to use them.
  • Different elements from beads to charms and why they are your sustainable and ethical style choice.

On the day, you can purchase kits to take home to continue creating on your own!

Enjoy a relaxed afternoon or evening plus some sweet treats, in this small group hands-on earring workshop. Leave with amazing pieces of jewellery, loads of style inspiration and a spark of creative passion. On balmy nights we open up the air conditioned studio to cool breezes.

Plus, order optional add-ons for more jewellery making at home and collect at your workshop.
  • Earring part set (5pr) brass, silver plate and/or surgical steel
  • Round nose pliers
  • Bead mat - so your beads do not roll away

Inspiring Jewellery Designer, Educator and Stylist

I founded Etelage (French for adornment), a boutique jewellery design studio, in 2002. Fueled with a passion for women to exude their notable and authentic style.
Etelage celebrates the maker culture, creativity and the joy and craftsmanship of handmade.
I am a local inner west, Sydney jewellery designer, passionate educator, author, community-spirited and sustainable style advocate.
I wander the globe to source the beautiful and the unique. From vintage elements which I find in dusty basements to modern elements made by artisans from time-honoured traditions. I observe that generally as a society we are becoming more mindful about our choices: conscious of choosing products which are made using artisan traditions and not mass produced, and seeking quality over quantity.

My goal is to create exciting and original creative workshop experiences, encouraging all my students to awaken their creative soul and seek beauty, slow, artisan and local.

I love creating a teaching environment where participants can share ideas, be inspired and let their imaginations run wild! With over 18 years teaching experience from TAFE, corporate and community groups, to hens parties and private tuition, I am dedicated to empowering my students to become better designers and better makers, equipping them with skills and confidence to create whatever they dream!

Learn how to string chunky necklaces, knot eclectic beads, link chandelier earrings, use buttons and buckles in jewellery design, and more at our friendly and intimate studio spaces in Rozelle and Summer Hill (Sept 2020). Alternatively, we can travel to your venue. (for group bookings only)

I invite you to come and learn some simple jewellery making techniques with a local jeweller, which will impress you as well as your friends.

Etelage jewellery workshops are perfect for individuals, corporate bookings or a group of friends.

Let's make and play together and unlock your inner creative!

I can't believe that I made 3 pairs of lovely statement earrings within 2.5 hours under the guidance of Christine who is so patient and knowledgeable. I would love to continue to make beautiful jewellery again with Christine as she uses good quality materials.

I went to this workshop with a friend of mine and we both really loved it. There were so many earrings to choose to make - and the teacher has great style so everything on offer was lovely. The workshop building is a nice space; pretty easy parking nearby and we had good social distancing throughout. Very happy with this class and love my new earrings.

Natasha Burtenshaw Aug 2020


Great having interchangeable kits to choose from - made it easy to get started and learn techniques. Small class was lovely and felt like an excellent price point for the take home skills and product.

The venue was great, with a lovely view and enough room for everyone. We made beautiful earrings and had a great selection of gorgeous beads to choose from. Chris is a great teacher too, showing each individually how to do things. I loved the class and the earrings I made.

I recently hosted a Hens party with Christine, and I could not be any happier with the event. I made a very last minute booking, and Christine was very efficient with her responses and everything was finalized within 2 days. The venue was beautiful, spacious and easy to find. The girls had the best time making vintage earrings while enjoying brownies and tea that was provided.I highly recommend this activity and won't hesitate to book again in the future. Thank you Christine for such a wonderful experience.

The class was absolutely amazing. The Venue was great, clean tidy environment which was easy to find on the busy Main Street. Christine provided us with all the tools, great materials and guidance whenever we needed and she gave equal time to each of the students. We were also provided with afternoon tea and sparkling water in the class so it was a relaxing experience. It was a great value for money as I managed to make 3 pairs of earrings that I’m really happy with. Thank you!
