Sarah Madsen is a BA Hons Degree Jewellery Designer from Central St Martins College, London. She will be teaching you to hand make your own two stacking rings in sterling silver. Using your choice of 2 mm or 2.5 mm sterling silver wire. This thickness will give the rings some substance to the ring bands and also a realistic heads up to working in metal.
This is a beginners course offering a friendly, informal introduction to the craft of jewellery.
In this 3 hour class, you will learn to saw, form, solder, hammer and polish your own jewellery. No previous experience is needed as this is a perfect class to start that curiosity into the world of traditional jewellery making.
This class is to handmake 2 rings per student and is run as a private session for one to one, or up to 2 people max. Please bear in mind with 2 people in a class we may run overtime.
"This is my most popular course and really gives you an insight into traditional jewellery making from my garden studio in Wisbech, Cambridgeshire. You'll go home with lovely rings made by yourselves:)
Makes an ideal gift for many occasions such as a mother and daughter class, birthdays, anniversaries etc .

Thank you Sarah for a fantastic morning. The workshop was brilliantly structured and we thoroughly enjoyed the challenge of making our own silver rings! We were made to feel very welcome and are thrilled with our creations. A brilliant mother, daughter treat.
What a lovely time I had making 2 stacking rings. Sarah is a very knowledgeable and attentive teacher, she explained all the steps carefully and kept an eye on what I was doing. This was my first experience of jewellery making and I am delighted with the results. The studio is well equipped and welcoming I will definitely be back for more.
I bought this workshop as a gift for my daughter’s 19th birthday so we went together. We had a fantastic experience in the well equipped studio, which we both really enjoyed. Sarah was a great teacher - warm, enthusiastic and patient explaining the different steps and we are both proud of the rings we made. Very inspiring - I just want to do more now!
This experience was amazing. There was plenty of time to create some beautiful rings and Sarah was welcoming and a great teacher.
This was my first experience making jewellery with silver and I learnt so much. I really enjoyed that Sarah allowed me to do all the work, and guided throughout. I liked that I was given explanations as to why things were done and how it worked.
Sarah is a great teacher - I feel like I have learned, rather than just experienced making the rings.
I will be booking more sessions, and hope to learn a lot more.
Thank you - I had a fantastic afternoon. I would recommend 100%!
Spent a brilliant few hours creating two beautiful stacking rings and absolutely loved it.
It was a lovely and relaxed environment right from the outset, Sarah is so personable and fun to be with whilst you are working on creating your rings. Not really knowing what I would be actually doing I needn't have worried as Sarah is an excellent teacher explaining each step (and why you do it) in detail with easy to follow instructions. The sense of achievement you feel, as its is very much you making your own rings, still brings a big smile every time I look at my beautiful rings (and I'm still making everyone else look at them too!!)
Would thoroughly recommend Sarah and this course and will hopefully be able to do further courses with Sarah in the future.
Spent a lovely morning creating two beautiful stacking rings and absolutely loved it. It was a lovely and relaxed environment and Sarah was an excellent teacher explaining each step in detail with easy to follow instructions, helping when necessary but very much allowing me to make my own rings. Would highly recommend the course and will be looking to do further courses with Sarah in the future.
Now I just keep looking at these beautiful rings I created and want to do more!
This morning I met Sarah for my silver stacking ring workshop... 12 hours later and I’m still buzzing!
I adore my new rings, but putting them aside for a moment (figuratively because I‘m never going to take them off), the session itself was brilliant! It was well paced and interesting. More importantly, Sarah was a great teacher, engaging and attentive.
Anyway, I’ll certainly be going back for more.
I had an amazing day yesterday making my lovely stacking rings. Sarah is the perfect teacher, encouraging, patient and so lovely. I would love to return for a follow up course and highly recommend to everyone! Thank you Sarah, I loved every minute, Michele x
My mum booked Sarah's stacking ring course for my 21st birthday present and we both loved it! Sarah was so friendly and helped us every step of the way by clearly explaining what we needed to do and helping out when needed, but also very much let us make the rings ourselves. We both love our rings and still can't believe we actually made them ourselves! Would highly recommend this course to anyone.
Absolutely loved every minute of this course. Sarah is a great teacher and creates a lovely relaxed environment. I learnt so much in the time I was there and came away with two beautiful rings. Such a lovely course to do and a great introduction to working with silver. I had never tried anything like this before and I’m so glad I did it!
What an amazing course. I purchased the course as a gift to celerbrate my twin sisters 60th. We had a wonderful memorable day. Sarah is such a lovely person and full of knowledge of her craft, really interesting person. We had constant supplies of tea, biscuits and cake. And a glass of Prosecco as a gift from her and her lovely husband. Would hugely recommend it.
This was such an enjoyable course. The time flew by! Sarah is a fabulous teacher - patient, endlessly enthusiastic and obviously really enjoys teaching and meeting people. Her cosy studio creates a relaxed atmosphere to learn in. Having never worked with silver before, I learned a lot and felt supported through the whole process. I’m very proud of the results!
I had a wonderful few hours learning how to make my stacking rings. Sarah is a patient, encouraging and enthusiastic teacher and she made everything seem very straightforward. It was great to be able to leave with two rings that I made myself. Would thoroughly recommend this course!
This was most enjoyable. Great teacher, and good instructions. Loved the whole process. Will definitely be coming back for more next year!!
This was an excellent course. Sarah created a wonderful and friendly atmosphere, as well as, teaching us the key principles of jewellery making. The results were amazing and I enjoyed the course immensely. I am hoping to do future classes and I would highly recommend this course.
Had a really lovely and fun day with Sarah making 2 beautiful rings that I will treasure forever. Sarah and her husband are so wonderfully welcoming, I felt at home from the very beginning. Sarah loves her job and she was a fantastic tutor. She is funny and very friendly so the atmosphere was great. I am already thinking of going back to do another session with her! Highly recommended.
We (mum dad and daughter) had a wonderful day making stacking rings with Sarah. It was for our daughter's birthday and was a great success. Sarah was very relaxed and helpful letting us make it our own work and at the same time giving us enough help to make sure we had a finished product that we were happy with. Myself and my daughter get to wear the rings and love them,. We found it was an activity that was enjoyed equally by us all - Great for men and women and any adult age. Sarah and her husband also looked after us so well through out the day with refreshments and a really thoughtful touch with a home made birthday cake!
This was a totally absorbing and truly satisfying course. Sarah is an inspiring teacher, exuding confidence in my developing skills and generous in her praise of my efforts. I love what I have created. I have recommend Sarah and her talents to all sorts of people and shall definitely book some more sessions to carry on learning.
I attend the beginners course for silver ring stacking today. It was amazing. Sarah is a great teacher, friendly and patient. Sarah family are warm and welcoming.
It is a great experience to see how silver jewellery is made and to make something that is unique for you. I would recommend this course to anyone. I will definitely be going back. :-)
Really enjoyed the stacking ring course I attended with Sarah. She was friendly and welcoming and had lots of patience to help me create some beautiful rings.
Would love to do more in the future, highly recommend the course! Thanks so much.
I contacted Sarah to arrange a valentines/anniversary surprise for my boyfriend and I. She was absolutely brilliant, really quick to get back to me to plan a slightly different day (one ring each - but for us to make each other’s) and she even got us some bubbly to celebrate! oh and thanks to her husband too who supplied coffee’s during the day.
During the course she taught us each step and let us explore different techniques/ styles so we could create a unique piece each. We absolutely love our rings and have them as a reminder of a fabulous day out and great way to celebrate our relationship! I would 100% recommend and would deffo go back!
Also her jewellery collection is beautiful, she is a very talented jeweller. Thank you:)
Sarah is an excellent teacher! She is incredibly patient and friendly. She guided me through the entire process of making two rings that I love! She has a lovely and well equipped studio in her garden. Sarah would demonstrate and explain the process at her desk before having me work on my own rings at the student desk. I would love to take more classes with Sarah again!
My boyfriend booked the stacking ring course for me with Sarah as a birthday surprise. I can’t quite put into words how much I enjoyed this experience! Sarah was incredibly welcoming and obviously had a lot of knowledge and talent in what she does. She taught me the basics of ring making and explained every step of the process with such patience. Sarah has inspired me to go on a buy some of my own tools to give it another go! I would thoroughly recommend this course and could not have had a better teacher! Thank you so much Sarah for making my birthday present so special :)
What a fabulous morning! Sarah is an excellent teacher and communicator. I felt extremely welcome and was put at ease from the moment I arrived. Her garden worship is extremely organised and equipped. All the skills and tools were carefully explained and demonstrated, and every step felt within my grasp. I am thrilled with my two rings which compliment each other by having two different finishes. I think I am hooked and will be looking to develop my knowledge and skills. I would highly recommend this course, it is brilliant value.
I am the extremely proud owner of the most gorgeous jewellery! Thank you so much Sarah for your help and patience. I highly recommended Sarah; she taught me the skills needed to make my rings and was great company for the day too. Her work cabin is a delight and I look forward to booking again one day.
Spent a wonderful afternoon making 2 rings under Sarah's expert tuition. I had not done any silver jewelry making before but Sarah explained and demonstrated each stage before we had a go ourselves. The time absolutely flew and I loved every minute. I have already got ideas for the next ring I want to make!
I loved this workshop, Sarah was fantastic, easy to talk to and a very good teacher, lots of encouragement, I'm ready for the next session of the pendant. I'm hooked!!
This course was fantastic. I thoroughly enjoyed the time with Sarah, who is an excellent teacher. I did all of the work myself after given great instructions. We had enough time to finish all of the work and for cups of tea. I would recommend this course to anyone who wants to try out jewellery making or perfecting their skills.
I was given a very warm welcome to Sarah's pretty workshop. Sarah showed me around her workshop and the tools that i would be using and what they were for.Sarah gave me excellent guidance and encouragement throughout the day, i learnt the basics of measuring, cutting, shaping, soldering, filing, final shaping and sizing, texturing and polishing. Sarah is an exceptional teacher with lots of enthusiasm and patients, she is fun to work with. I was offered lots of tea, coffee and biscuits during the day, i had a brilliant time and left with two exceptional rings on my first attempt, i can't praise Sarah highly enough and want to come back and learn more. I would definitely recommend this course.
Loved every minute of this course. Sarah is so patient and friendly. I am so pleased with what I have produced and will definiately be back.
Sarah was delightful. She was very lovely, kind, encouraging and went at my pace. She has lots of experience and creative knowledge in jewellery making. Her studio is very equipped for 121 tuition and I thoroughly enjoyed making my rings! I
Will definitely return for more classes and would recommend this course.
I loved doing Sarah's class. She has a really sweet and friendly workshop. Sarah was patient and kind and really encouraging. I hadn't realised how much was involved in the process. It was so good having one-to-one tution and I learnt a lot. There was tea and biscuits too. I love the rings that I made, with Sarah's help, and hope to do future classes. I highly recommend this class.
