BAJ Launches Pearl Threading and Hanging Short Course This Summer

We are excited to be launching our new Pearl Threading and Hanging Short Course this June at BAJ Birmingham.

During this one-day course, students will learn about the theory of pearls, gaining insight into the various types, their characteristics, and how to select the perfect pearls for their designs. They will also learn about the essential tools and materials used in pearl jewellery making, enabling them to create stunning pieces with confidence. Furthermore, students will acquire fundamental jewellery-making skills, exploring the intricacies of wire linking, looping, wrapping, hanging, knotting, and more. Under the expert guidance of award-winning Jeweller Collette Waudby students will learn how to achieve flawless results and troubleshoot common challenges along the way.

Wondering if this course is right for you? There are no prerequisites to attend, all of the tools and materials are provided as part of the cost making it suitable for beginners. This would also suit aspiring jewellery makers eager to learn the art of pearl jewellery crafting, jewellery enthusiasts who are interested in expanding their skill set and creating their own unique pieces, and anyone with a passion for pearls and a desire to explore the world of jewellery design.

Join BAJ tutor Collette Waudby on the 17th June to dive into the timeless world of pearl jewellery. Collette, an award-winning Jeweller most recently nominated for the NAJ’s Designer of the Year 2023 award, is known for her hands-on, encouraging teaching style and is dedicated to getting the best out of her students.

“Collette is such a patient and knowledgeable teacher. She taught me how to string pearls for my final project [on the Level 3 Jewellery Design and Manufacturing Diploma course], and even made visuals for me to take home. Thanks to Collette I have been able to incorporate pearl stringing into my work.”Emily Buckler Kim, BAJ Birmingham Graduate
