Unleash Your Creative Magic
When's the last time you made something by hand? It's a fabulous feeling to express your creativity by making jewelry. We love to make things because it feels good!
Spark Your Imagination
Make a gorgeous beaded necklace choosing from a stunning array of design choices. Create something entirely original or choose from our many design samples. We have lots of inspiration and examples to spark your imagination.
It's easy to forget that we need a break from our endless responsibilities and busy lives.
Play isn't a luxury, it's essential for our happiness.
Spending time with friends is vital to our happiness. And doing something fun together just increases the bond.
Bored from too much scrolling? Take a digital retreat with some hands-on fun and genuine in-person connecting.
Easily Make Beautiful Jewelry
We've made jewelry making easy to do and you'll be amazed at what you'll make with your own two hands!
I'm Pamela, founder of Gem Collective. Over the past 30 years I have spent countless pleasurable hours making jewelry. I always felt so alive and engaged trying out new designs, playing with combinations of different colors, shapes and textures. And it never got old.
I especially enjoyed inviting my supposedly 'uncreative' friends over and watching them have the same happy experience. We would sit around the dining room table and I'd bring out my many trays of jewelry components. We would play around with different design combinations and while we made our jewelry, we had fun catching up with each other. It was leisurely and bonding. There's something inherently nourishing about women crafting together.
I created Gem Collective because I wanted to share this with a wider group of women. It is a dream come true to have us gather together in cafes, get in the creative groove make a fabulous piece of jewelry together.
It's the combination of all the elements - the feeling of community and happy vibe of enthusiastic women dedicated to an evening of play and fun, doing something creative together and the satisfaction of making something with our own two hands that make the the jewelry socials such a positive experience.
I'm genuinely looking forward to meeting you and sharing this wonderful experience with you.

I loved every minute of the social. It was amazing to just let my creative juices flow while also having great conversation and support from others. I definitely recommend!
I went to a Gem Collective social and it turned out to be a really fun & relaxing evening. It's easy to make your own jewelry. There was a wide selection of items to choose from and I get compliments all the time. I will be going again!
Lovely to meet new people in a creative, fun way. Beautiful jewelry, pleasant atmosphere, and helpful leadership by Pamela. I would highly recommend this social evening for women looking to release their creative energies. It is a great opportunity to make a hand-made gift for yourself or someone special.
