BenchLab Talented Instructor: Cheong Yee Kuan of Gary Fun Beads (@ykscrafts). You’ll be learning from a full-time jewellery designer and handicrafts event organizer of Craftworks Kitani. This talented lady has been playing with beads and strings since she was 8 years old and started to take proper lessons at the age of 12. A decade after, she made her first safety breakable lanyard and after attending courses on jewellery making at New York Institute of Art and Design, she is now a certified jewellery designer. Feeling frustrated about not getting any qualified jeweller to restore her precious pieces of jewellery, she initiated the service herself and she has been providing high-quality jewellery customization and restoration services to her clients ever since. With this workshop, Cheong Yee Kuan hopes to share the basic fundamental to jewellery designing as she believes in the ingenious of designing with things people already have instead of making something from scratch.
