article imageOp-Ed: Beadle's is the jewelry place for fashionable ladies and men Special

By KJ Mullins     May 22, 2011 in Lifestyle
Toronto - Torontorians love their designer pieces. Luckily for us we have Canadian artisans like Cherie Lunau Jokisch. For ten years Cherie has been crafting beautiful trinkets to adorn fashionable ladies and men.
This year Beadle is offering Toronto workshops and parties to learn her craft.
She is taking her skills and giving up to five people at a time to learn how to make pieces that they can treasure themselves. Starting at $50 party goers (and their hostess who gets all this for free!) head down to the Beadle Cave for nibbles and knowledge. The Beadle Cave is Cherie's studio in the basement area of her store where she crafts her wares.

The hostess decides who can of jewelry she and her guests would like to work on from crystals to more expensive gems before the party. Cherie supplies materials and her vast knowledge.
"I am pretty open to what party-goers want to learn in making fashion jewelry," Cherie said during a phone interview. "I am really open to sharing ideas and the skills needed to make beautiful pieces of jewelry from the everyday things to custom pieces."
When asked why she decided to start the jewelry making parties Cherie said she always wanted to teach.
"I love seeing that spark when someone makes something special," Cherie said, "I find it rewarding to be able to share my knowledge."
Not only are the skills being shared but the insider tips on where to get the supplies needed for future personal projects.
This enterprising artist loves working with pearls and crystals. At Beadle she sells her own pieces and that of other Canadian artists. Most of the pieces are crafted in the Greater Toronto Area.
