Description

Love silver jewellery? Love rings? Then this is the workshop to try!  Spinner rings or the mediation rings made with one or more outer ring(s) spin(s) freely around an inner wider ring. In this workshop you’ll create your ring using sterling silver and mixed metal (copper or brass) wires. You will be able to make up-to four rings in total by using range of basics of jewellery making techniques such as annealing, sawing (piercing), filing, soldering, shaping and forming, texturing, and polishing. You will also learn how to size a ring. All the equipment and materials you need are provided, including the Sterling Silver and copper/brass wire to make the rings. You can take your ring away on the day; however, I can arrange your ring to be sent away for hallmarking and returned to you at a later date with a small additional cost.
