Lady Luck Rules OK Jewellery Workshop & Trade Secrets Talk

Look out Glasgow! Look out Scotland! Everyone's favourite oracle of indie business is a-headin' your way! Leona Baker, creator of cult indie jewellery brand Lady Luck Rules OK, will be bringing her Jewellery Workshop & Trade Secrets talk to our very own De Courcy's Arcade on Sunday 29th August. Made in the Shade is thrilled to play hostess to Leona on the only Scottish date of her final UK tour!

Let's hear all about it from the gal herself shall we?
Over to you, Leona!

"After 3 sold out Trade Secrets Talks and 5 sold out Jewellery Workshops in my London studio I’ve combined the two events to take on a mini tour around the UK!

The trade secrets talk will cover topics such as how to start, run & grow an independent creative business; how to successfully sell online; PR, marketing and social media; wholesale & trade shows; and how to deal with the tough stuff like competitors and copycats!

The jewellery workshop will reveal all our unique production methods & materials including how we made our personalised jewellery, enamel & gold charms, glittery broken hearts, printed acrylic pendants, fuzzy wooden animals & mixed media Midnight Forest designs. I’ll also detail the importance of sampling, working with manufacturers, where to source and practical tips on how to achieve the best results. The techniques involved can also be applied to many other products including accessories, clothing, home wares, greetings cards and stationery.

My London talks and workshops have been attended a wide variety of people from artists, graphic designers & illustrators, boutique owners, jewellery designer/makers, fans of LLROK wondering just how we made everything and folk researching how to turn that first seed of an idea into a product to make and sell. My students have also included a Central St Martins Design Tutor and girls who’ve traveled from Paris and Italy!

The jam packed 3 hour event will fill your head with oodles of inspiration and a wealth of knowledge enabling you to transform your ideas and designs into awesome products to make, promote and sell."

Now that's what we call a SESSION. So! We anticipate by previous patterns that tickets for this event will sell like hot whoopie pie (?!) so y'all best save that date and book those (limited) spaces quick smart! Leona has had some excellent feedback on her past talks and workshops. If you'd like to sample some testemonial chat and get a feel for what to expect, then snoop on over here.
