Hammered Stacking Ring Set

 

Come and join me in my studio and make yourself a set of up to 4 sterling silver stacking rings or a spinner ring.  The techniques you will learn include sawing, soldering, filing, hammering and polishing. You will able to make twisted wire rings and hammer others for texture. The spinner ring is a wide band with finer bands trapped by the inner ring’s fluted ends.

The images above show the Spinner ring, which is in effect up to 5 rings. We will learn how to Size your finger correctly and you can make yourself a perfectly fitting set of rings. If you have any scrap gold we can melt it down and solder it to your rings to spectacular effect. You can also make your rings using gold wire by arrangement, as this would be a separate material order at your own cost.

The workshop is run on either a Saturday or Sunday and runs for 4hrs, starting at

10.00am – 12.00pm Studio

(we break for lunch for an hour, you are welcome to bring lunch or eat from our close local eateries.)

1.00pm – 3.00pm Studio

The cost of this workshop is $180 inclusive of your materials and all tools are provided.

No experience is necessary for you to have fun. You will learn how to use a LPG torch to solder, you will use a Jewellers saw and scribe to mark out and cut your metal. You will also use hand tools such as pliers, hand files and precision hammers.
