Corporate Jewelry Making Event

We cannot believe that the holiday season is almost here.  We are busy booking holiday corporate parties for both adults and children.

What do our parties consist of?  We are a mobile jewelry making company that comes to your event to teach and assist in making beautiful one-of-a-kind jewelry. We do workshops for groups of 10 to 200 participants. We have many different packages to choose from, all ranging in price from $15 to $20 per person. We are ideal entertainment for holiday parties, client appreciation events, networking events and lunch and learn workshops. 

We have two options that we offer for these events.  We either set up a booth where people can come over to make the jewelry, or we teach all the participants before or after dinner.

We also offer holiday event entertainment for children where we set up a booth and the children can make necklaces, bracelets or keychains.

We have created beading workshops for lawfirms, insurance companies, consulting companies, banks, hospitals and many more.
  Beading is perfect for small intimate workshops, large conferences, fundraising events, birthday parties, girl's nights in, bridal showers and bachelorette parties. 
Contact us and we will customize our services to meet your exact needs.

Jewelry Theme Birthday Ideas

We are often asked by mothers what theme should we do for my daughter's party.  If the birthday girl is 8 or older, we always suggest that she go with the theme of "beading party".  We suggest that the children paint wooden jewelry boxes or make candy kabobs and the mothers often hand out candy jewelry.  The painted jewelry boxes or candy kabobs make a great take home gift and are a great alternative to the traditional loot bag.  We also suggest that the mother make a jewelry box birthday cake or cupcakes with real rings or ringpops placed on top as a decoration.
For the younger children, where it is all about THE THEME, we suggest a "Fancy Nancy" party, a "Sophia the first" party or a tea party using one of the above themes.  Both these themes are perfect for 5-7 year old girls.

We are doing a "Sophia the first" beading party for my 6 year old daughter's birthday this fall.  We are going to decorate everything in purple, hunt down vintage china from thrift stores for the girls to use, hand out fancy headbands and feather boas, serve fancy treats and make fancy jewelry that Sophia would love to wear.

Pearl Spacer Bracelet in Spring 2014's Colours

How to Make a Bracelet using Pearls and Spacers using Spring 2014 colours

Elastic string

Using scissors, cut a strand that is double the size of your wrist and then add two inches. Tie together with a knot at the end of your strings.  String a bead and then 5 spacers, continue this pattern until the bracelet is the desired length.  Tie in another knot to finish off your bracelet. 

To make your bracelet extra trendy, make it in one of springs "it" colours.  According to Pantone, the Official Color of 2014 is PANTONE® 18-3224 Radiant Orchid, described as "an enchanting harmony of fuchsia, purple and pink undertones, Radiant Orchid inspires confidence and emanates great joy, love and health. It is a captivating purple, one that draws you in with its beguiling charm."  The other colors for this Spring are Placid Blue, Violet Tulip, Hemlock, Sand, Cayenne, Freesia, Celosia Orange and Dazzling Blue.
