Have you ever found it difficult to find a way of making your beads into beautiful
jewellery? Come and join the fun on this two day workshop and you can find out
how to make some lovely cabochons incorporating dots and spots and daisy swirls.
Then learn how to make very simple settings, requiring minimal tools, creating you
a fab piece of wearable art.
We will be exploring the application of dots, what glass works well, tips on
achieving beads that are symmetrical and the many options in terms of design and
application. We will then make Cabochons. The morning will be dedicated to dot
decorated cabochons and in the afternoon, we will look how to use gravity to create
large beautiful mandala style cabochons for pendants.
This morning we can continue what we learnt yesterday and discuss other ways of
making cabochons and other designs you can incorporate including murrini
We will then learn how to make some simple silver settings that can be achieved
very easily to mount your makes. You will leave with at least one ring and one
pendant at the end of the weekend
