Suitable for complete beginners and well as students looking to expand their skills, this workshop makes an ideal introduction to ring making as well as using found objects in jewellery making.
During the workshop you'll select a beautiful piece of tumbled sea glass and learn how to incorporate it into a unique Sterling silver ring. You are welcome to bring your own pieces of sea glass if you have them.
This workshop is an ideal introduction to ring making and an opportunity to learn jewellery techniques such as sawing, filing, soldering and stone setting.
The day begins with a demonstration of how to make a basic ring out of wire. Different textures and finishes can be applied to allow each student to create an individually designed ring. Students practice this technique before moving on to create a bezel setting for their sea glass.
All tools and materials are provided and the tutor will be on hand to work with students one-to-one guiding them through the designing and making of their rings.
