EJS, what does it stand for? why, it stands for Elegant Jewellery Studio a homegrown jewellery making class and community dedicated in spreading the knowledge and art of handmade delicate artisan jewellery. Many might assume they are a premium class community therefore not many can afford but that's where your assumption is wrong. What you do not know is that the class packages they provide is actually very affordable and in return for the knowledge and skills obtain from each classes are beyond valuable, in fact it's priceless already if you continue to nurture these jewellery making skills for one day it could potentially be a side (or main) income..
EJS usually organize 2 different type of sessions in different locations like one is specially for children and the other for adults, Children sessions are usually held in Setiawalk, Puchong 1-2 a month depending on their schedule. Since it's already school holidays i am sure you parents would love to get your kids involved in some activities so why not sign up for EJS kids workshop?
Their next upcoming class is end of this month 26th Nov 2015, still not too late to sign up but remember slots are limited!
Per session can only accommodate 10-16 students (both adults & kids) so they can have a more focused and intimate 1-on-1 session.
Updated schedule can be viewed here and it will be updated regularly:
EJS Workshop Timetable (Kids & Adults)
Let's see what i've made within 3 hours of class:-
- x1 Choker
- x2 bracelets
Not a bad start, could have been faster but met a few technical difficulties along the way and learned a few tricks on planning the colors properly before threading them in, if not you'll end up like me wasting time removing all and re-threading them again lol
Initially this class was focusing on creating arm candy a.k.a stack-able bracelets but i got abit too carried away in making it that a choker came out instead haha but on the bright side because of the method and material used to make this choker it is easy to loop'em around my wrist twice making it a bracelet as well. See?
Wasn't planned but it turned out fine, so i ain't complaining lol.
For all of EJS's short classes that you sign up for materials are provided like in this workshop from beads, findings, tiger wires and other tools. Angie herself will be there alongside her advanced students to conduct the session by a brief demonstration and after that all of them will go round helping out if you have any questions about how to make your jewellery.
And what i love so much about this class is the quality beads are findings that is provided for use, it makes all your creation look super duper polished like the ones you find in an expensive jewellery store those "tai tai" used to visit XD
The materials provided for this jewellery making class isn't the same like you had back in school or DIY at home as a kid because those materials you used makes your creations and the final product looks like a toy instead of a masterpiece.
EJS emphasis alot on quality and that is something they are not going to compromise with, so what you make here in their classes is definitely of a value :)
A large array of various types beads like pearls, swarovski and other precious elements.
After admiring my masterpiece (cheh wah..so perasan dy lol) which i proudly visualized and color coordinated it following the design template Angie had provided us with, I am overwhelmed with that sense of 'achievement unlocked" in such a short period of time.
Seriously, i am not really good with handling small stuff like this since i have super clumsy fingers but with guidance and advice from the EJS team, i actually made it out without "fantoi-ing" lol.
Those who have worked with small beads during embroidery and all would understand why i traumatized with small beads XD
Though they aren't of the same kind of beads but the resemblance is there.
Here is the final product of my sweat & blood (exaggerating queen as usual, pfft!), aren't they all gorgeous? ♥
Feel like making more to give as Christmas gifts this year! Really love to make personalize gifts as they feel so much more meaningful no?
Also friends and family would appreciate this gesture more, as who can say no to such beautiful jewellery! Was thinking for heading for another session to make another batch before Christmas, who here wants to join me too? :D
Personally i think this workshop is totally worth it and reasonably priced for the adult session, which was only RM198!
