You will need to select six to ten pieces of your jewellery to bring to class (maximum), a photograph of valuable jewellery items, or bring the cheapies and come and play.

What might you take home at the end of the day:

- Cleaned and repackaged jewellery treasures, ready to store or give away.

- Repaired items if possible (earrings, brooches etc)

- A new item made from broken jewellery pieces/and or

- A design for a new piece of jewellery you would like to own, reusing part of something you brought to class.
