Jewellery education in Sydney, Australia

Hi everyone,

My name is Kathleen and am interested in making my own jewellery. I
have some abalone (paua) shells that I have collected and want to
make some necklaces out of the pieces. I am aware that a special
drill is required so the shells do not break in the process. Could
you please direct me in the right direction for whom to talk about
the way of getting a hold of this drill. Maybe classes that are
offered where I would be able to use the machinery so I would not
have to buy one?? I would be interested to learn other jewellery
making trades as well if these classes exist in or around Manly
Beach, NSW.

Thanks for your time and consideration,

Kathleen Kuepper
