Seaglass Jewellery Workshops at Portobello Town Hall

Sunday 7th April  11.00am & 12.00pm. 

A relaxed workshop at Portobello town Hall, where you will learn to make your very own sea glass/pottery jewellery.

I live in Portobello and collect sea glass/pottery from beaches all over East Lothian and Scotland and then turn these into unique pieces of jewellery. I have a large collection which you will be able to choose from and create your own one-of-a-kind jewellery. 

What you will make:

By the end of the workshop you’ll get to take away one unique piece jewellery. You’ll be shown how to make either a pendant necklace or a pair of beautiful earrings. These can be worn straight away or given as a gift.

Within the workshop will learn the technique of wire wrapping, you’ll have a choice of colour wire to wrap your chosen sea glass or pottery and the be taught how to assemble your jewellery.

For the necklaces you will have a choice of colour cord made from waxed cotton to hang the pendant and when making the earrings you will have a choice sterling-silver or gold-filled ear wires.

All the equipment is provided, just bring yourself and your own sea glass/pottery if you would like to:)
