Natural Icon

   Nature abounds with every day treasures! At Natural Icon Designs I make well made, handmade jewellery with a focus on semi precious gemstones, bone, amber, wood and freshwater pearls. I enjoy and take pride in creating every piece myself. Unless otherwise noted all pieces are one of a kind.

If you are interested in making your own treasures, I offer jewellery making classes taught in Calgary, including bead stringing, wire wrapping, making earrings, bracelets and necklaces. My fully equipped studio has a relaxed atmosphere with a low student to teacher ratio and classes are affordable with no pressure to over spend.

  You will not only have fabulous accessories, but also enhanced confidence, self esteem, and the fun and joy of creativity!

   Unlike classes at bead shops, you may bring beads you already have to a class. Supplies for one project are included in the price of the class so you don’t have to worry about keeping track of each bead that you are buying so the focus is totally on learning and designing.

Make a Bracelet! This class takes the guess work out of attaching a clasp.You will learn how to design a one strand bracelet. The techniques involved are bead stringing and crimping. Proper tools and materials make all the difference, plus a few invaluable tips and tricks to ensure solid crimps all of the time. You will actually get to crimp and I won’t let you leave until you are confident to crimp on your own! The images above are just two examples of the type of bracelet you can make. The possibilities with colour choices, bead size, shape and texture make the possibilities endless!
