In this hands-on workshop, "eartastic" you will learn techniques to make a pair of earring designed and hand made by you! The workshop is hosted in the Blue Mountains, Lady Bird Studio / Karinya which has expansive views over a valley of trees, the property backs onto the national park.

You will begin learning how to work with metal, first using copper to practice saw-pierced and texturing which will help develop your idea. Then after morning tea move on to creating your own beautiful sterling silver pair of earrings.

With time to focus and hone your skills, this class, open to all levels, is the perfect starting point to get creative and make some fabulous wearable piece of your own design.

The workshop is for beginners or anyone with some experience. All materials will be provided at no extra cost.

Essential techniques covered:

  • Metal cutting – learn how to saw-pierce metal using professional jewellery saw frames
  • Texturing and stamping – whether it’s a hammered texture or stamping, there is a range of tools to experiment with
  • Anneal – using special jewellery torches watch how to anneal metal
  • Finishing – learn how to file and use emery paper to give your earrings a final finish.

We finish in time lunch (BYO your lunch), time for you to relax and enjoy the view.

We had a wonderful time with Fran and made 2 pairs of beautiful earrings. Also we were offered some delicious biscuits with tea and coffee. The place itself is cosy and has some magnificent views.

Turning a flat piece of silver into a stunning pair of earrings is such a thrill. I love what we created. Thank you Fran

Fran is a creative and patient teacher and makes you feel confident you can do this. So looking forward to my next workshop.

Lauren Powell May 2022


Fran is just wonderful. She is friendly, informative, and fun. Fran provided just enough direction to understand the skill but allowed us to explore our own ideas. Fran is clearly experienced as I had a very vague idea which she was able to make sense of and turn into fantastic earrings. Fran was able to trial a number of different techniques to achieve our goal. I did this class with my mum and we both had such a great day, we would definitely recommend this class. SO. MUCH. FUN! Fran also provided delicious morning tea. Thank you Fran.

Fran was fantastic. Very patient and explained everything simply and well.
The class was enjoyable, I was surprised at how well my earrings turned out. I’d definitely recommend this class. I’ll be back for another session with Fran for sure.

Fran is friendly, experienced and a great teacher - just enough guidance to give you confidence but not too much so you really design and create your own jewellery. Her studio has a wonderful view of the mountains and is well equipped. We were amazed at how far we got in 4 hours - from complete beginners with no design to completing our new earrings (which were surprisingly beautiful considering we had no creative bent at all) We are looking forward to doing another class with Fran soon.

It was a great course. At the end you get to come home with your own earrings and the venue was great. Everything was there and the view at lunch time was fantastic, really enjoyed it. Fran was an awesome teacher and explained everything in a way that made it easy to follow and do.
Highly recommended for anyone interested in jewellery making.

Absolutely loved Fran’s silver jewellery making workshop. She’s highly experienced, patient and taught with empathy and great skill. The venue has everything you needed plus the complimentary nibbles with cheese, tea, chocolates and strawberries. It was a wonderful night for the whole family which consisted of a 10 year old girl, husband and wife :)

Fran was very keen to hone our skills before we started on the silver;so the teaching was important to her as well. She guided our ideas and encouraged our own unique creations. A well set up and welcoming environment. Thankyou Fran

Lovely afternoon with Fran. I really enjoyed the process and company while designing and making an amazing pair of earrings. I would highly recommend this class.

Kathleen Konarew Nov 2020


This workshop was a really creative and collaborative experience which I totally enjoyed - many thanks
The teacher's positive approach and practical support made the experience really affirming - giving one the confidence to try more. I look forward to participating in more workshops in the future

The class was terrific. Fran was super lovely, knowledgable, outgoing and caring which made me feel completely at ease. She was so helpful and I thoroughly enjoyed the class. I can't believe I made a full set of gorgeous earrings on the first day which I gave to my daughter who bought me the class as a gift. I also had one of the best tasting coffees made for me ;). The studio has a very relaxing ambiance in a lovely bush setting. Fran is a true artist with a lot of other talents all of which added to the creative energy of the day. Fran makes her own beautiful jewellery, many of which I was tempted to buy for myself (and might still do). All in all, I can't say enough good things about the experience and I highly recommend the class. Thanks, MJ.
