PROFILE

I am Victoria White, a one woman dynamo/mad scientist/designer.
Coming from an Art History background, my love for art, the history of man, and shiny pretty things came together whilst being pregnant with my daughter and working for the Museum of African American Art in Florida. I fell in love with African trade beads. They were historical in context, heavy with human drama, an artefact, an antique, pretty, and were relatively cheap. Pairing the few trade beads I had with semi-precious stones and sterling silver wire, I began to make my first wrapped earrings for fun. It was very therapeutic and relaxing, until my husband at the time saw the box of earrings I had made, took them to work, and presented me with a box of money that afternoon, after having sold them all to his work colleagues! And that is how all this madness began. That was a bit over 25 years ago. And here we are now.

I am not your typical jeweller. I aim for grand pieces with fabulous stones, thus the term rockstar. The rocks I deal with are sparkly and precious. I own and manage Gems, Rocks, Bling in Sydney, working from my Surry Hills studio. I specialize in bespoke one of a kind pieces featuring precious stones & metals. I also facilitate jewellery classes for groups and individuals.

For Make a Ring in a Day Workshop

By (attended on 9 Mar 2019)


I really loved the class. Victoria is a lovely teacher, she's very thorough and can really transmit her passion for ring making to the student. The class is in her living room with kitchenette, which makes it really cozy.
You will learn all of the steps of making a ring, perform some of the activities (Sawing, Annealing, bending the silver etc..) and for the majority of the tasks you will rely on Victoria's expert hands to get to your very own hand-crafted silver ring. Recommended!

My teacher Victoria was super cool and experienced. She had all the beads and a great range to choose from. I had so much fun learning how to make my own Mala beads. She even spend extra time to teach me how to make beaded bracelet . So definitely worth the money. I am going back to learn more.

This class with Victoria was the perfect hands on learning experience on the key skills for stone setting. Victoria is very knowledgeable and a master at her work and I feel lucky to have been able to learn from her. Not to mention the gorgeous ring made as a result of this class!!!

Victoria is a wonderful teacher. She has some beautiful pieces and very experienced. It was nice to learn how to put together a Mala with her.

I enjoyed using the Chakra cards to help me determine which crystals I could use, and as you can see from the pic, you have no idea what the finished product will look like once you start working with different crystals which makes it more fun.

For Make Your Own Gemstone Mala Workshop

Victoria was an energetic and enthusiastic teacher that went to great lengths to make me feel comfortable in the jewellery making course. She walked through each step of the process, communicating in an enthused manner the endless possibilities of creating my own unique mala. She went to great lengths to ensure that my piece was exactly as I wanted it, and showed great dedication by helping in areas where I was finding the process a little tricky. The venue was lovely, and the class was well organised. I parked nearby (lucky I got a limitless parking spot), but for future customers, it may be better to catch public transport.
