What you'll do

Picture this… You’ll enter my lovely, warm, plant-filled home studio. We’ll get comfortable and talk about your design over an aromatic cup of specialty tea. Then, under my guidance, you will create personalised, delicate sterling silver jewelry with your own hands! You'll learn goldsmithing techniques such as saw piercing, filing, sanding, drilling and surface treatment. I’ll only perform the trickiest parts of the process—or any part you’re not comfortable doing yourself. You’ll practice cutting metal until you’re confident before sawing out your actual pendant from sterling silver. You’ll perfect the edges using special jeweler's files and sandpaper. We’ll drill into the pendant to attach the chain. Based on your preference, I’ll either polish your pendant to a high shine finish, or you’ll abrade it with pumice powder for a matte finish. We’ll assemble the bracelet/necklace with a clasp and ensure it fits perfectly. Finally, you’ll watch as I solder the links closed so the piece is strongly constructed and secure. You’ll put on your finished piece… and we’ll take photos for you to share. Now your creation will last a lifetime, to treasure and pass on to loved ones!

Eleni

I'm the founder of the Parisian jewelry brand Liminaire. I create pieces for the entire body that evoke the most radiant, confident part of ourselves. After my formal training in gold and silversmithing in Melbourne, Australia, I worked for high end jewelers who specialised in bespoke pieces. I moved to France seven years ago and love the life I’ve created here. I warmly invite you to my home studio where I’ll introduce you to the world of fine jewelry. You’ll love having my undivided attention during your Airbnb Experience—with no more than three guests sharing a session.

Tea, coffee and mineral water
Equipment
Everything you’ll need for one sterling silver piece of jewelry, including silver sheet, chain, clasps and velvet storage box

Where you'll be

The workshop will be held in my home studio in Vincennes, which is fully equipped with all the tools you'll need to make your own sterling silver bracelet or necklace. I love welcoming guests into my beautiful plant-filled home, where music and tea are plentiful.

Things to keep in mind

Cancellation policy

Any experience can be cancelled and fully refunded within 24 hours of purchase, or at least 7 days before the experience starts.

Communication policy

Always communicate through Airbnb. To protect your payment, never transfer money or communicate outside the Airbnb website or app.

Guest requirements

Up to 3 guests ages 14 and up can attend. No prior experience necessary, just common sense and a willingness to learn.

Government ID

You’ll need to take a picture of yourself that matches the photo on your ID. This is so Airbnb can confirm who’s actually going on the experience. You’ll only have to do this once.

What to bring

Your ideas for pendant designs (eg heart, Eiffel Tower, bird, moon, initial).

More tips

If you’re not confident with any part of the silversmithing process, I’ll be there to complete that part for you. The most important thing is that you enjoy yourself and end up with a beautiful piece!
