Pebbles workshop

Last Thursday saw me packing the car with beads, buttons, findings, tools and homemade biscuits.. a vital part of any workshop! You would have thought I was going to stay for a month the amount of bits and pieces that I had to take! Anyway, the journey up was uneventful... thankfully!...(see last post) and I arrived at Pebbles in time for breakfast and coffee... mmm!
Once the breakfast had been cleared it was time to set up the conservatory for the first workshop of the day. I prepared a little package of goodies for all the participants...
Some blurb about me; basic jewellery making techniques; a feedback form; pebbles brochure; business card; postcard in which to make notes; and a lovely little bag to put the finished jewellery into.....
The enormous table, that mum used to do her homework on, was then set... bead mat, pliers, wire and beads.... you couldn't ask for a better setting than that could you? Doors open and the sound of the sea gently lapping the shore.. FAB!
All set and ready to go...
After coffee and homemade cake and biscuits we began... I had a fantastic time and I know that all the ladies who came did too... 12 for the morning session and 7 in the evening, including two who had come in the morning who came back for more in the evening.
Heads down, hard at work..

Helping hands..

So many different colours and styles of jewellery were made... I found it truly inspirational and loved the interaction with people, inspiring them and watching their confidence grow.

Another date has now been put in the diary and that is September 22nd... I would love to see you if you are free that day... come and have some fun, get creative and eat cake!!!! Can you resist?

Email me for details.

Have a great day xx

Looks wonderful. Wish I could justify coming down for a workshop, maybe next year depending on family income etc which is a mite dicey currently.

Oh by the way the pebbles logo seems to be a link but it's broken.
