Want to learn how to make your own jewellery in Melbourne? Join Angela Clark at her boutique store in Carlton North and create your own unique rosary-style necklace.

In this workshop, your experienced teacher Angela will teach you to make yourself a necklace using Czech glass beads, thread and an Ethiopian cross in the style of a rosary. Knotting beads are mostly associated with pearls, but it’s just fabulous with all kinds of beads and necklaces!

Knotting is a rhythmic technique that is extremely meditative and once mastered, you’ll be hooked.

You will finish this class with your own one-of-a-kind necklace to take home and treasure, along with all the skills to continue jewellery making at home.

Angela has travelled to Ethiopia a number of times to teach and mentor young women who have their own jewellery making businesses in Ethiopia. She has travelled into the mountains to see these fabulous crosses being made using recycled bullet cartridges. Using these crosses in our work is not only beautiful to look at but is an important industry that supports rural families.

Angela Clark is the designer and maker behind the luxury jewellery brand Angela Clark that has been creating unique jewellery for women and men for 15 years now in Melbourne.

Angela is celebrated in Australia and overseas for her unique craftsmanship which includes the use of recycled, upcycled, uncirculated vintage stock together with ethically sourced beads from the Czech Republic and Ethiopia.

Angela’s focus is on creating elegant, functional jewellery for everyday wear and special occasions.

Clark encourages the preciousness of ownership of jewellery and likes to make people aware of the intrinsic value of that piece... loved for the very reason that it brings the wearer joy and not based solely on whether it’s made of gold or silver.

Many of the components woven into her work are already 50 plus years old and collectables in their own right, to give these pieces new life is a joy and thrill that Clark wants to encourage the wearer to feel.

Angela is passionate about sharing her knowledge and skills with others, here in Australia as well as the USA and Ethiopia. Angela has travelled to Ethiopia several times to teach and mentor young women and assist in areas of business development and training.

Aside from her work internationally Angela has worked extensively in Australia teaching her skills in universities, schools, hospitals and with many more diverse groups of adults and children.

Angela’s work has featured on many red carpets and in most recent years she has held solo exhibitions at New York Fashion Week’s Sustainable Fashion Day.
