About Us and our Jewellery Workshops

My name is Tracey Davis and I started making and designing jewellery in 2012. This has become my passion.I enjoy working with the customer to design a piece to suit their unique style and budget. I use both semi precious stones and Swarovski crystal beads in my jewellery. I make necklaces, bracelets, earrings, hand jewellery, shoulder jewellery, bib necklaces, rings and tiaras. I also run jewellery workshops

I also get so much pleasure from passing on the skills that I have developed over the years to other people. I run a variety of house-party style jewellery making classes and workshops in my Cornish Home, Trehardor near Looe, delicious food included! Dog cuddles are an optional extra (4 Shih Tzu to cuddle)

I also run corporate days and team building events for small to medium sized businesses and my workshops offer alternative activities for conference delegates partners. I offer children jewellery making birthday parties here, giving the young guests a chance to make real jewellery with glass beads and metal components using the proper tools. 

For Jewellery makers, I have lots of tools and findings and lovely beads to choose from, including Tibetan silver beads and charms, Indian glass, Chinese crystal, cloisonné and semi precious stones, new steam punk items, as well as a range of jewellery kits and starter kits for sale. My low overheads mean that I can sell to you at very competitive prices. If you live locally, just call me to arrange to come and see for yourself and enjoy a cup of tea or coffee and a slice of cake whilst you browse.

Hen parties and Prom princess parties are two of my other favourites.

Personalised gift vouchers are available for all my workshops and make fabulous birthday or Christmas presents.

If you represent a local charity I can consider donating vouchers for a workshop place as an auction item or raffle prize. 

Please contact me if you would like to discuss this.

Jewellery Making Workshops

A typical itinerary for a full day jewellery making workshop.

On arrival at 10am you will be welcomed with a selection of tea, coffee or soft drinks and homemade cake and if you are joining a mixed group you will meet your fellow guests

We will then move through to a dedicated craft room to see the great selection of beads awaiting you - your biggest challenge may be choosing! The morning tuition session introduces basic tools, techniques and materials and you will make your first projects, possibly a charm bracelet and some earrings - its really up to you, I'll give as much or as little help as you need.

You will then enjoy a delicious home cooked lunch with a complimentary glass of wine in our recently refurbished dinning room or if the weather is nice enough on the patio. I can cater for most dietary needs.

in the afternoon you will have further creative time when you should have time to make at least two more pieces of jewellery with the beads supplied

The standard beads are included in the workshop fee - I don't put a limit on the standard beads used so you are free to make just what you want. There are also premium beads, charms and findings available at very reasonable cost.
