Who designs and makes the Necklaces?

Elizabeth Joseph (me!) lives in London and has been designing jewellery for over 6 years, supplying independent fashion boutiques in London. I run workshops and create bespoke items for special occasions. I like to wear statement jewellery and encourage the wearing of large jewellery by women all over the UK and possibly beyond.

How difficult are the Workshops in a Box?

The Workshops are easy... There are instructions showing you how to make your necklace and some extra pieces so you can make your own design. I've been running creative workshops for two years. All items in my Workshop in a Box are done in real life workshops with me so I know what you like to do, how long it takes, and the ideas you would like to see.

I love my Necklace Workshop in a Box! Will you be doing a monthly subscription Workshop in a Box?

Yes, in the near future you will be able to subscribe for £29 a month for a Workshop in a Box to be posted to you every month with a new exciting item for you to personalise and make from the comfort of your own sofa. Watch Netflix and make something at the same time!

Why do I have to wait until October 3rd for you to post me my Name Necklace Workshop in a Box?

Because each order is unique, I design and make all the letters myself in batches, all the lasercutting is done at the same time in order to keep costs down. Otherwise the cost of each Box would be doubled.

I want to order two Name Necklaces, both with my name on them, do I have to fill in the page twice?

Yes, as each Necklace is unique, click on Home to refresh your screen and fill in the form again with your new choices.

Anyone from age 10 to 110 can make the items in the Boxes.

It depends on whether you have used jewellery pliers before, it can take up to 45 minutes to make a piece.

Do you do Workshops for events in person?

What will I learn from the Workshops

You will learn how to plan your piece, choosing colours, shapes and how to assemble your piece using jewellery tools, jump rings and where necessary, how to attach a clasp.

What kind of chain is in my Box?
