Jewellery Making with Dink Design
One of the first people I interviewed for The Life of Stuff was Fiona Fewer back in October 2012. Fiona is the brains, beauty and designer behind Dink Design, Unique Handcrafted Jewellery. Launched in 2006, Dink Design puts a smile on jewellery lovers faces worldwide with her on-trend, colourful and crafty creations. If you’d like to know more have a read of the Q&A blog post here: Dink Design – Unique Handcrafted Jewellery but hurry back here as I have some news for those of you who want to take your jewellery fetish to the next stage …
Fiona, who has been running Jewellery Making Classes for some time now is all set for her next Workshop … here’s what she has to say …
Come and join me at my next 6 week jewellery making course in Rathgar this February. Each week you will create and bring home a number of pieces of jewellery including necklaces, bracelets, earrings and rings and you will learn a variety of techniques using lots of different materials. You’ll be amazed at what you can achieve in 2 hours and how therapeutic jewellery making is! The classes are small with plenty of opportunity for one-to-one tuition. Beginners and improvers are welcome. The price for the 6 week course is €140 and that includes all materials, tools and equipment.’
The course starts at 2.30pm on Saturday February 21st in The Rathgar Bookshop in Dublin 6 and to secure your place you need email Fiona at email@example.com … but that’s not what caught my attention … I’m loving the newest offer from Fiona … A ‘Drop-In Option‘ …
… for those who can’t commit to the course – they can drop by any Saturday and make a necklace, bracelet and earrings for €25′
A really great idea for those who have a special occasion coming up. For those who have never partook in a ‘class’ before. For those who want to test out the class before they join Fiona on her next Jewellery Workshop or for those of you who can be a little like myself at times and get easily distracted by … Oh look a squirrel!
An alternative to coffee and cake or cocktails and olives (those can come later of course) – a crafty and creative way to spend a Saturday afternoon … and for €25 you can design and create your very own necklace, bracelet and earring set to go with your outfit! All materials and tools are proved by Fiona and classes are small so lots of time for one-to-one tuition … I love it … and so much so I’m hoping to pop by on Saturday February 21st myself … that is if this Mommy-to-be doesn’t pop herself!
For those of you not interested in learning how to make jewellery yourself but know a jewellery lover, just think of this … ‘Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime’ … well that works with pretty beads too!
