Potter Around the Bead Shop
For all you magpies out there, we have a wide range of beads and some findings in stock for you to indulge in jewellery making at home or simply to browse the selection and make something in store.
You are welcome to come and make your own piece of jewellery anytime in the studio if you know what you are doing or if you need just a little help. Equally with all our beads, much enjoyment can be had simply stringing colourful beads on elastic – something anyone can do.
If you feel you need more direction, you can book a workshop. Why not get a group together who would like to do this, then give us a call to arrange a date. The price of these workshops is dependent upon what you would like to make but is usually around £15 a head.
One to one jewellery making tuition can be arranged if you are interested in learning more specific techniques. These sessions are £25 per hour and are bookable in advance.
Jewellery is also one of the options for our children’s parties and we are always happy to open the studio any evening if you would like to organise a night of jewellery making for you and your friends. Why not combine a night out with making yourself or a friend a present. This is also a great activity for a hen party.
Making jewellery is great fun, but we appreciate that sometimes it’s nice to have a piece made for you. We have a stock of fabulous jewellery to choose from, all made locally in West Lothian, or you can have pieces made to order.
Potter Around Making Beads
If you fancy making your own beads, we can show you how to make beads and pendants out of clay, then glaze them once fired. You can create very unique pieces of jewellery this way.
