PROFILE

I founded Etelage (French for adornment) in 2002, fueled with a passion for women to exude their notable and authentic style through jewellery.
I am a local inner west, Sydney jewellery designer, passionate educator, author, community-spirited and sustainable style advocate. My ambition is to help you develop excellent technical jewellery making and design skills and inspire you to greater creative depth in your jewellery making adventures using beautiful modern and vintage elements sourced ethically and sustainably.
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. So it is with that philosophy that I share my skills and knowledge of jewellery design to encourage all my students to awaken their creative soul and seek beauty, slow, artisan and local.
My goal always is to create a teaching environment where participants can share ideas, be inspired and let their imaginations run wild! With over 17 years teaching experience I am dedicated to empowering my students to become better designers and better makers, equipping them with skills and confidence to create whatever my students 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 (April 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!

Chris

Statement Earrings Workshop Sydney


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.

Statement Earrings Workshop Sydney


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!

A lovely way to spend the afternoon. The teacher (Chris) was very friendly, helpful and informative and made learning the basic beading techniques easy. Looking forward to making more of my own jewellery!

Statement Earrings Workshop Sydney


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.

Beaded Jewellery Workshop - for Beginners


Chris was well organised, friendly and a good instructor. She taught me how to make a beaded choker, a beaded necklace and two sets of earrings. I was able to choose the colour scheme for both projects. The venue in Rozelle was easy to get to. I will definitely be using my newly acquired skills to make jewellery for family and friends
