Inspiring Jewellery Designer, Educator and Stylist

5.0 (8)

I founded Etelage (French for adornment) in 2002, fueled with a passion for women to exude their notable and authentic style through jewellery.
Etelage is your creative tool box. With jewellery and bead retail stores formerly in Newtown and Cronulla, Etelage moved 100% online in 2015 and has recreated that instore retail experience of inspiration, knowledge and passion.

" 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 15 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!
I look forward to meeting you in class."

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!
