Toronto Jewelry Workshop Testimonials

We're fortunate enough to have hosted hundreds of people in a Fredrick Prince jewelry workshop ranging from Adults 18+, Youth 12-17 and Kids 9-12.

This workshop was an amazing experience and absolutely one is the highlights of our Toronto trip. Melissa was absolutely wonderful working with both my young niece and my teenaged stepson to make sure they both could make the type of jewelry that reflected their personal styles. I was particularly impressed with how she put my stepson at ease. She was able to show him some masculine styles of necklaces and then helped him execute his own idea “freeform.” All four of us love the jewelry we made. I feel like I wound up with the necklace I’d been looking for for years and just never found in a store. I highly recommend this wonderful experience.

I booked the jewelry workshop with Melissa for a bridal party and had such a good time. Melissa is very personable, patient and you can feel the passion she has for her craft when you talk to her. She spent the time explaining techniques to each of us, and worked with us on designs we like. I honestly had one of the best experience creating a very unique piece of jewelry and all the girls that participated had a blast doing it.The bride had such a good time and couldn't stop showing off the pieces. It's definitely a perfect activity for a small group and I highly recommend!

My best friend and I had such a fun time doing this workshop! On our birthdays we take the other out for a best friend birthday date to do fun activities. This was absolutely perfect. We both love the necklaces we created. Melissa was so helpful and kind in guidance. I wouldn't hesitate to do this again or recommend the experience to anyone. I will surely be back.

This was an amazingly creative experience which results in a unique and personal memento that you can wear and own forever afterwords. The quality of the materials and instruction was top-notch. My friend was a little hesitant that she wouldn't know what to do and Melissa was both super friendly and helpful through the whole process. We both left very pleased with the whole experience and wearing our beautiful necklaces! Highly recommended for travelers as well as local Toronto folk.

What an amazing experience! Melissa was extremely patient, welcoming and friendly, thorough, skilled at her craft and a great teacher, all while being laid back and supportive! She taught us the fundamentals of jewelry making and my daughter and I walked away with beautiful pieces— including some from her collection! There were beautiful bead and finishing options as well! I would return to create another piece with her for sure!!!

I booked this experience for my mother and I to celebrate her birthday. We had a fantastic time, the workshop was great and we came out each with a necklace we loved. Melissa was great to work with and helped us create what we were envisioning. A tip for any future bookings - don't wear a high necked shirt or sweater like we did - you will need try on the necklace at various times for correct measurements/style and it will be easier with a lower neckline on your shirt! :) A+++ experience. Definitely will be booking this again. Thanks Melissa!

This experience is a no brainer. It's so much fun and Melissa could not have been a greater host! She made my mother completely comfortable doing something she never thought she could. My mom left our visit with Melissa feeling so amazing and so grateful for the time we spent in Melissa's shop. We both left with beautiful pieces of jewellery that we will treasure forever!

Melissa was very patient and had optimistic energy with us. She was very informative and passionate with the jewelry pieces. The experience itself was memorable and pleasantly surprising because, I didn't end up making what I had in mind but something even better!!! My friend and I had so much fun and would like to come back again to make more pieces!!

What an awesome experience! My boyfriend and I planned a day trip to Toronto and wanted something crafty to do while we were there. So we kicked it off with Melissa who was so informative, patient and just overall fun to chat with. She was easy to communicate with and very accommodating with adjustments made before our visit. For our jewelry we had three pre-designed templates we got to choose from and she was very helpful with any "off template" designs we wanted to add if we were feeling extra creative. Once we were done she offered to wrap up our pieces but we were so excited to show off our beautiful work we wore them out the store! Her little shop is so cute and loved looking around at all her beautifully hand-made pieces which we had a newly found appreciation for after going through the making process ourselves. Coffee/tea was served, shop was clean and just an overall super fun experience! Highly Recommend! Usually I'm always thinking of something that "stuck out" as something to improve but not this time.

This experience was so much fun! Melissa is so nice and really lets you be creative. She has some templates and ideas to help you get started, but then you get to make your piece as customized as you'd like. Even in a group setting she is able to work one-on-one with everyone and give great guidance. I'd highly recommend this experience.

Brought my girlfriend here as a surprise happening as a part of her birthday. I made a piece of jewelry for her and she made one for her mom. We both loved the creative process and Melissa did an exceptional job at hosting, teaching and guiding us through the process of making jewelry. This was the first Airbnb Experience we have every tried and the bar is now set very high! I HIGHLY recommend this experience to everyone who is even just slightly interested.

This was my mother and my second workshop with Melissa - we loved the first one so much that we came back for more! :) My mom says: "Melissa is a competent and lovely host, who explains everything well and is very supportive. There are many beautiful jewelry items and stones to work with and we might even come back a third time!"

Honestly one of the coolest things I've done in a while! Mostly planned to just suprise my lovely with something she'd enjoy learning about but I loved it too! I look forward to using what she taught us together. If you are creative in the slightest, want to do something cool for a crafty friend of yours, or just want to make someone something special from you... Get here. Your mom deserves it, your wife deserves it, your daughter or son. And all with an awesome teacher who was not afraid to jump in when we needed help but stood back and let us be creative ourselves. Will be referring for sure! Thanks Melissa!

I had an engaging time with Melissa, creating a necklace for a friend, learning basic techniques, making selections from a wide range of beads & chains. I thoroughly recommend this workshop. Exceptionally good value and very enjoyable. Thank you so much Melissa!

This was a birthday gift for my wife. It turned out to be the best birthday we have shared in our 14 years together. The host was so patient and pleasant. We made some bracelets, one for each of our twins (were expecting).  I will definitely go back for my mother for her birthday as well.

This experience has been my favorite part of visiting Toronto so far! I booked a session for me and my friend to create a custom jewelry pieces. Melissa was so sweet and introduced herself and got us coffee and water before we began. She let us take take time to browse her store and gave us tips on what to pay attention to so we could get ideas for what we would like to create for ourselves. She then had us choose different materials to make our pieces. She was so generous and let us go through her large collection of beautiful beads and chains and answered a bunch of our questions. We spent a wonderful morning in her shop talking to her and creating our own unique pieces. Melissa really made our trip special and I learned so much about jewelry making! It was so fun to be creative and Melissa made it easy for us to tap into that side of our brains! I highly recommend this experience!!

I would highly recommend this class. Melissa was very friendly and knowledgeable, and patiently walked the group through all of the stages of designing and assembling our own necklaces. She starts with three basic “templates” to choose from, but also provides a wide assortment of beads, chains and findings that make it possible to create a truly one-of-a-kind piece based on personal preference and style. I went with two friends, and we all ended up with completely different pieces. I am delighted with my new necklace, and am looking forward to going back again to try a different design!

I chose this experience for my best friend after we agreed we just wanted some ‘quality time’ together this Christmas. Melissa was kind, patient, and incredibly helpful as we tried our hand at making jewellery. Her materials were of awesome quality and her sense of style and craftsmanship on point. We would both love to return and bring others!

You can expect to learn a lot! This class was great!!! I'm not a big jewelry person but this class def opened my eyes to a new world. Melissa was amazing! Very patience with my non-jewelry self and made sure by the end of the time I crafted something I'd love. Which I do!! From the description I though I was going to make more than on piece but making one was more than just enough I def had bead option overload! It was GREAT!!

I would like to thank Melissa for this experience!I'm glad I got the opportunity to meet and craft my first jewelry piece with your guidance. You're wonderful company and a loving individual. I would recommend this if you're interested! I was worried it was going to be a bit challenging but it was really nice to get creative and make something to your own taste! Thank you again Melissa.

Such an amazing experience! Melissa was very friendly and helpful during the whole process. She gave us tips and ideas on how to create and pick our designs and would also tell us about her experiences over the years creating her own pieces. A VERY great workshop to do with friends, something new, exciting and different to do with amazing quality jewelry pieces.

Absolutely loved this experience and would recommend it to anyone interested in jewelry! The workshop was well organized and just as described. I didn't have any experience but thanks to Melissa the necklace turned out beautifully and I absolutely adore my first selfmade piece of jewelry. There are a lot of jewelry pieces to get inspiration from and a huge selection of stones and other materials to choose from and work with. Melissa is an exceptional host; very friendly, entertaining and knowledgeable. She made us feel welcome and comfortable. Plus, she is so enthusiastic about jewelry making that it is a real pleasure to work with her! I absolutely would book this workshop for a second time!

This is a great activity to do in Toronto. You'll come away with a truly unique, one-of-a-kind piece of jewellery. Melissa, the owner and designer, is so welcoming, fun and passionate about what she does. She is there to guide and help you through the design process, making suggestions when needed, but really encourages you to be creative and make what feels right for you. It's a relaxed and open class and environment, so you don't feel rushed or pressured. Great for beginners. She really cares about her customer, so you'll be well taken care of. All the materials are included in the price of the workshop. Her boutique is nice and bright too. Since you're working with a local, independent artisan and making something that is unique to your personal style, you're sure to create with something that no one else will be wearing.
