Bohemia Sustainable Jewellery

Join Born Again Bohemia for an exciting workshop aimed at people who are interested in sustainable fashion and curious about how we can accessorise in a planet friendly & ethical way!

During this course students have access to a huge collection of reclaimed beads taken from preloved jewellery! You may also practise dismantling & foraging through jewellery to source your own favourite beads.
Learn how to make a stunning pair of high-quality Bohemia earrings & a bracelet made using specialist wire & bead techniques. Professional jewellery tools are explored and the functions of different pliers.

An impressive collection of high-quality beads are provided which are all sustainable and reclaimed celebrating a low carbon footprint and reducing waste ethos. Beads include pearl, crystal, wood, glass, precious stone and an all colours of the rainbow. Earrings can be made in either gold, silver or rose gold and sterling silver-based hooks are provided for completion.
Participants will be given jewellery boxes for both their pieces which make unique, personal gifts for loved ones!
