Cebu company gives training on bead work

A Cebu-based company has partnered with schools to impart to teachers the skill of making fashion accessories using beads.

Beads and Findings, a subsidiary of Cebu Hardware Corp, recently conducted the second in a series of workshops for teachers at the Edgeworth Review Center in Cebu City.

More than 120 teachers from 38 schools across Mandaue, Cebu and Lapu-Lapu City joined the four-hour workshop, with hands-on demonstrations on the creative use of beads.

Beads and Findings hopes that the teachers will not only teach the skill to their students but use this to earn on the side.

Upon registration, which is for free, the teachers were given a kit that included beads and materials for four items. These are for the creation of a pair of earrings, a keychain, a Christmas wreath and a necklace.

If given a value, the materials in the kit cost only P100.

After learning about the basics of twisting and binding beads, the participants were given the freedom to create their own earrings, keychains, Christmas wreath and necklace.

“The participants were surprised when they knew that the prices of the items range from P11.25 to P37.94.

These are sold a lot higher by retail establishments,” Beads and Findings manager Brent Ngoboc said.

He said the teachers were free to design their own accessories.
