Rustic Silver Ring Workshop with Amy Smith
28th May 2021 –
A great class for beginners and those wanting to try something new! This silver ring making class is a perfect taster session in silversmithing where you will learn to make a silver band from scratch adding texture inspired by nature, you can choice to make a stacking ring with 2 finer bands or a single slightly thicker band and add a bobble on top if you wish!
We will cover techniques including ring sizing, saw piercing, annealing, soldering and finishing using a range of tools. You will leave with a finished silver band of an organic style of your very own.
