Spinner rings, also known as 'worry rings' are a great help for those of us who like to fidget or find relief for their anxiety or worries by having something kinetic but subtle to help them feel grounded and soothed. If this sounds like you or even if you just love your jewellery chunky or kinetic, this course is for you!
Create a solid sterling silver spinner ring (also known as a worry or anxiety ring) by hand making not just one inner ring out of wide sheet silver but two more rings with silver or brass metal wire (our silver option also includes beaded wire which is just... ahh) to add that spinning, kinetic flair!
The workshop runs for 5.5 hours (11:30am to 4:30/5pm) and there'll be plenty of tea and biscuits, laughs and good chat- it's always a lovely, friendly environment that encourages creativity and freedom so the length of the class is only as strict as you want it to be.
As it runs over lunch time hours, please feel free to bring along some lunch for yourself if you like!
Although this class welcomes beginners, it is an ideal follow up to our Stacking Rings workshop.

I have attended 2 of Nina’s workshops making stacking rings and a spinner ring. I have never tried silversmithing before this, Nina was very welcoming, friendly and professional, she explained everything very clearly and demonstrated each process. I really enjoyed both workshops and came away with some lovely pieces of jewellery made my me which makes them special. I would highly recommend making jewellery with Nina. I hope to join in more of Nina’s workshops this year.
Response from Iasthai Original:What a wonderful end to my year! Thank you so much Wendy, it's been an absolute pleasure and I look forward to seeing you SOON 🔨💍 Happy New Year! 🥂
Did this Spinner Ring course yesterday with a friend. What a blast!! Nina is fab and an excellent tutor. She takes great care to ensure that your ring is your design and your execution i.e. your ring - and guides and educates you to ensure that you go home with just the design that you wanted.
Please don't think that jewellery is not for the blokes - this course works so well for everybody. Nina is an incredible tutor who really knows her craft and takes great care that you get full value from the course.
I went on this course with a friend and we had so much fun. Our ring designs were quite different but worked so well and we could look at each others designs and see how well they shone!
I very much recommend this course and am really looking forward to the the next session with Nina where I can learn something new
Such a great way to spend an afternoon and so pleased with the fidget ring- as is my wife.
Would definitely recommend. Nina is lovely, patient and a good teacher. No question seemed too much and I even left with a sheet of materials and tools I'd need to start this up as a hobby.
I'll be seeing you soon Nina- looking forward to the private classes
