sustainable jewellery making using what you already have
REVAMPgathering- create something new with the old collection in your jewellery box
using your loved, unworn necklaces, bracelets and solo earrings, all the things of memories. loved but unworn and in need of eco-up-cycling.
“Thanks Michele, for a lovely morning workshopping with my old jewellery and your beautiful beads, it was wonderful working together collaborating combined ideas and helping me with the final creation which I love.”

emubeads’ diy workshop offers a space for learning some jewellery making skills and support to design a new jewellery piece from your existing collection.
it becomes an opportunity to cut up the old and re-thread your loved necklaces and bracelets that are too short, too broken, too outdated, into a contemporary new piece.
integrate the history and stories of your jewellery collection with a splash of emubeads’ handmade glass beads: offering a complimentary $10 of emubeads’ artisan forms & colours to fit your design.
emubeads’ diy recycle workshop evolved from a love of creating jewellery and women historically crafting together, while also acknowledging the planet and its finite resources. we learn to question the ideology of buying new and throwing away the old and instead, up-cycling what we have as a sustainable choice for the planet.
