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.

    Ring Making Workshop – Wide Band

    Textured ring band – For this workshop I will guide you through the steps to create a ring band (a wider flatter band rather than a slim stacking ring) adding texture or stamping a design or letters. You can practice on copper first, so if there is time you can take away a finished copper sample ring as well as a sterling silver ring.

    2 Day Weekend Beginners Course – Silhouette Pendant or Earrings

    2 Day Jewellery making course for beginners, 10 – 4 pm

    This course is a new 2-day introduction to some basic jewellery making techniques aimed at beginners. The focus this time is on saw piercing and sweat soldering using sheet metal (not wire) to make a silhouette pendant or earrings, and we will cover some basic skills to get you started. –

    Course Breakdown –

    Day 1 – In the morning we will start with practicing some texturing techniques on sheet metal such as hammers to texture, punches to add a design or the rolling mill to emboss with texture. This will be followed by some saw piecing practice, cutting some shapes in copper using a jewellers saw. In the afternoon, we will continue with saw piercing and introduce some sweat soldering techniques to attach some of your cut-out shapes together, layering them to make a mock-up design in copper ready for day 2.

    Day 2 – We will utilise all the skills covered on day 1 to make a silver silhouette pendant, or you could choose to make some earrings instead. You will be provided with a small sheet of sterling silver to do this so depending on the design you choose, you may get more than one pendant, or 2 pairs of earrings etc. This is very much dependent on the design and size you choose.

    Skills covered during the 2-day course will be – texturing metal, saw piercing (cutting using a jewellery saw), filing and sanding, soldering and polishing. We will also discuss some additional information such as hallmarking requirements if you wish to make jewellery to sell. I can also provide a suppliers list for materials and tools etc.

    Time permitting you may get to make a simple ring from silver, but this is very much dependent on time and is not guaranteed. There will be a small charge for silver wire if this project goes ahead.
