Learn how to make statement earrings and flaunt your notably unique style in this Sydney jewellery making workshop! Learn from a local jewellery designer in a brand new studio at the iconic Flour Mill in Summer Hill.

If you loved our Beginner's Earring Workshop, this is a great follow up class. It's designed for those with some experience in jewellery making (but beginners are also welcome), as you learn how to make your own more advanced earring designs.

Select from kits and also design your own style using elements from our creative toolbox. Use Czech crystals, beads, brass filigree and plastic Lucite all sustainably sourced from Europe with a vintage modern twist.

Want to find your own notable design style? This workshop will show you how to 'build' your design to make stunning statement earrings.
Choose to make embellished gypsy hoops and beaded fringe chandeliers to linear styles using bright pops of colour using vintage lucite plastic beads.

You will create three pairs of statement earrings to take home with you. Big on style but so lightweight, you won't know you are wearing them, except for the compliments!

In this earring making workshop you will learn:

  • Design principles of composition, texture and motion.
  • 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.

Enjoy a relaxed afternoon or evening and some sweet treats, in this small group hands-on earring workshop. Leave with amazing pieces of jewellery, loads of inspiration and a spark of creative passion.

Plus, pre-order optional add-ons for more jewellery making at home and collect at your workshop in Sydney.

Please note:
  • A minimum of four participants is required to go ahead and a maximum of eight, due to COVID-19 restrictions.
  • We can also cater for exclusive team building activities for your corporate office or fantastic hens party ideas at your venue, or Summer Hill.

Inspiring Jewellery Designer, Educator and Stylist

5.0 (22)

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!
