Join Jen’s Jewels Upcycling Workshop and transform your old, unwanted jewellery into something extraordinary!
If you have jewellery lying around that you no longer use but can’t bear to part with, this workshop is your golden opportunity to give it a new lease of life.
Under the guidance of Jen, the founder of Jen’s Jewels, you’ll delve into the world of repurposing and learn invaluable techniques to reimagine your jewellery pieces. From skilfully disassembling your old jewellery to harnessing the full potential of existing materials, you’ll also learn how to rewire beads and findings.
Unleash your creativity as you unlock the hidden possibilities within your jewellery scraps and leftovers, and discover exciting new ways to create unique and personalised pieces that truly reflect your style.
