Throughout history societies all over the world have used jewellery to commemorate and mark rites of passage and major life events such as weddings.

Beads such as freshwater pearls have many folklore tales and stories connected to them, as well as having a rich history in wedding jewellery. There is certainly something very special about them.

Immerse yourself in this fabulous tradition of jewellery making and have lots of fun along the way! It really is easier than you might think to make your own jewellery from home.

Content and Overview

I designed this jewellery-making course to be easily understood by absolute beginners. You will benefit from 19 lectures and over an hour of videos, as well as downloadable resources, that enable you to work alongside the instructor to create your very own wedding or special occasion jewellery.

There are a few videos at the beginning of the course showing basic techniques such as making wire loops and using the crimping tool. Then we will dive into the project tutorials, where we start to build your collection of handmade beaded jewellery, starting with pearl drop earrings, followed by a sparkly Swarovski bracelet then lastly a stunning pearl and crystal necklace. Essential techniques such as attaching clasps and ear wires will be covered.

Tutorials on wedding hair pins, hair combs and tiaras will be added to the course soon, and you will simply have access to these additional tutorials automatically and at no extra cost.

You can of course change the beads used and create more ‘everyday’ styles if you wish!

The basic jewellery-making techniques that you will learn during this course will enable you to make hundreds of very different pieces of beautiful beaded jewellery, so it is a fantastic foundation for your jewellery-making journey.

And should you have any questions throughout the course, I will be available to answer them and help you along the way.

By the end of this course you will have a beautiful, sparkly collection of your very own handmade wedding jewellery, to match your wedding outfit perfectly!

It is my wish for you that you will feel confident and happy with your new found skill and hopefully you will have made some new like-minded friends within our online community too! 

You will even receive a certificate of completion upon finishing the course.
