Workshop: bracelets

For 10 years we have been making our designs with much love and we decided it is time to share the joy of making jewelry with you!

Our studio manager Nic, who has been teaching here for 3 years, will be hosting the workshop, in which you'll learn to make your very own BonBon bracelet!

At the beginning of the workshop you get to pick which bracelet you'd like to make: the Little Lapis, Little Charlotte, Petit Pastille or Dots.

Nic will guide you through the whole process, from measuring the material, to cutting, bending and filing. She'll make sure you will leave with a perfect bracelet!

Check our availability below and book a date, alone or with friends (with a max of 4). Please note that the date will be canceled 24 hours before if only one spot is filled. You can then either reschedule or get a refund.

If you want to book for 3 or 4 people and you can't find a date that fits, please contact us and we'll add a date especially for you!

  • coffee, tea and something sweet will be provided
  • no need to bring anything, we'll provide all the tools and materials
  • experience in jewelry making is not necessary!
  • the workshop will take about 2 hours, with 30min extension if you need more time
  • minimum age requirement is 16yo
  • Nic speaks Dutch and English
  • location of the workshop is in our jewelry studio in our store on the Rosmarijnsteeg 8 in Amsterdam
  • you will receive an automated purchase email for this workshop after booking it and a personal email from Nic close to the workshop date with the final confirmation and extra info

Take good care of your pieces and they will love you forever...but please be aware that we create delicate items, so handle them with care!

We advise not to shower with or polish your gold filled items. This will make the gold layer wear off quicker. If necessary gold filled can be cleaned with soft soap and a non-abrasive cloth.

14kt gold, sterling silver and brass items can be polished with a special jewelry cloth.

Always store jewelry away from moisture.

Every item is handmade to order at our studio in Amsterdam. That means we will be putting a lot of love and attention in exactly this piece and that might take a little longer than you're used to.

Please allow a delivery time of up to 1 week for purchases sent within the Netherlands and up to 2 weeks abroad.

WHAT IS GOLD FILLED?

BonBon Boutique only uses the highest quality in materials. Chipping gold layers or green fingers are just not acceptable! For that reason most of our jewellery is made with 14kt gold fill materials and solid sterling silver. For a more economic wallet (although let's be fair, gold fill is pretty economic already...) we offer some necklaces and bracelets in brass.

We've been using these materials for the past 10 years and have seen a lot of very loyal and satisfied returning customers!

Even though our experience tells us, that even sensitive people can wear our gold filled items, we do like to note that a very small percentage of highly sensitive people could still have a reaction to it.

 

What is gold filled?

Gold filled is a material with a thick layer of 12 or 14kt* gold fused onto a brass core. This layer will not chip and will often take anywhere between several months to a lifetime to wear off, depending on the weight of the item. It will last a lot longer than regularly gold plated jewellery.

This means that most of our rings can be worn daily and last for many years (even with regular hand washing). Necklaces will wear a little quicker, because of the fineness of the material, but you should expect it to last anywhere between 6 months to a few years. This will depend much on how you treat it and, not always fair, the acidity of your skin.

We advise not to polish your gold filled items. They usually don't need it and it will make the gold layer wear off quicker.

When eventually the gold layer does wear off, the brass core underneath is slowly revealed. Once all the gold has worn off, you can polish the item and keep wearing it! Rings can most likely still go without polishing, necklaces will retrieve some of that golden shine after polishing.

*Pretty much all of our gold fill materials are 14kt, with a few exceptions. If you are concerned about this, or you'd like to know which parts we use are 12kt, please use the contact form below.

 

What is brass?

Brass is a sturdy and popular metal, widely used in jewellery making for it's long lasting and subtle golden shine. Brass is easily polished with a jewellery cloth in case tarnish or dullness appears over time.
