Tuition is one-on-one so your learning is fast tracked. The aim of the course is to learn how to make a set of 3 stacking silver rings. Each ring can be individualised by using a variety of hammered textures. You will learn how to texture silver, how to form it into a ring, and how to solder, oxidise and polish your rings. You will be introduced to the fascinating craft of precious metal jewellery making using traditional techniques and hand tools, in a traditional jeweller’s workshop. The mysteries of working precious metals will be revealed! All Lucy's jewellery making courses aim to enable and support students in developing the craft of jewellery making either as a hobby or an income.
