“It's not just the jewellery. From OCH and BeadWorks, I have really built confidence and I am looking to the future now in terms of career and future pursuits."
- BeadWorks participant

"The reason I come to BeadWorks is that it allows me to be creative in an encouraging and positive environment. Before coming, I had never even considered making or selling jewellery but after trying it out I feel I've discovered something with a lot of potential. I am now considering taking a course in jewellery design."
- BeadWorks participant

"BeadWorks allowed me to emerge from a dark period of my life and to think about the future and about moving forward. Through the creativity and artistic expression I really saw something tangible that I could look at and say wow I created this."
