Necklace, bracelet, earrings, rings… these are all the pretty stuff that a lady wouldn’t miss eyeing on them. The gorgeous colour, the shinning tiny ornaments pieces worn on your body; pretty eh.
One Sunday after the rain, I attended a jewellery making workshop by Elegant Jewellery Studio of Kelvin Gems, which is located outside myBatik at Yayasan Seni. This is a lovely place, surrounded by the vibrant green nature and a little shack that serves good coffee – That Latte Place.

Making my necklace with the help of Bead Design Board
That day, I was assigned with the beginner class to learn the basic steps in making the trinkets.
I was introduced with the equipments and materials all over the tables – Copper wire, jump rings, bead design board and jewellery pliers…
After choosing pearls and colours I wanted them to be, I was demonstrated and taught with the ways and key points to twist and do my master piece. Time to get started with all the blings blings and technique. For one moment, I felt very artsy. Being surrounded under such a great atmosphere and making jewellery. Lol.
Students at work.
Tadaaaa… my work!!! A necklace (not in the above pic), charm bracelet, and a pair of earrings. All done by me, myself. Nice boh???
The toughest part to me was; I had to squint my eyes to do the tiny loops that hanging the beads to the bracelet and also the earrings. It took me some times but I managed to make it.
There are many other projects by EJS and you can actually sign up for these classes.
All handmade pieces. I wonder how they did that with lots of twist and twist.
The classic piece and all time favourite of Angie’s.
