Natural Icon Designs

   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.

Play With Polymer Clay!

Polymer clay is an extremely versatile, user friendly medium to get going with your creative ideas. Relatively inexpensive and easy to work with it is a great way to get back into using your hands,  designing and thinking about colour and texture. The world of polymer clay is vast and offers something for everyone. There are so many applictions from jewellery making  to sculpture to creating cute little beasties and flowers. There are many ways to use surface treatments to disguise polymer clay including gold leaf, pearlized powders, photo transfers, paint and guilders paste.  This is a three day exploration that runs Thursday evenings starting Thursday August  6th, 13th and 20th.
