Rings & Things Workshop

£65.00

* New Workshop * Rings and things workshop is suitable for beginners or those with some prior experience.

This workshop revolves around making rings and other circular things with wire. You will have 20 cm of either round or square sterling silver wire, and basically you will make anything circular. For example, you could make –

* A set of simple stacking rings

* A halo pendant

* An infinity pendant

* A Russian wedding ring or pendant

* Hoop or round drop earrings

* A simple ring and halo pendant (using additional metals such as brass or copper)

You will practice with copper first making a simple ring, and you can incorporate other metals into your finished design. Wire can be textured or twisted to add detail. The amount of ‘rings’ you get out of your silver will depend on your ring size and what you decide to make. Some designs such as twisted wire will use more silver.

    Spinner Ring Workshop

    Spinner ring workshop 11 – 4 pm. During this session, you will make your own spinner ring. You will practice first with copper to determine size and textures, and then move on to making a finished ring in silver. You can add 1, 2 or 3 rings to your wider band (depending on the metals you choose and your previous experience) and you can use a combination of metals and textures. The example shown is a wideband with the inside polished to a high shine, while the outside of the band has a matt finish. The ‘spinners’ are 2 thin rings, one silver and one brass for a contrasting colour. This workshop is suitable for beginners or those with some prior knowledge.
