What you'll do

Is it going to be a silver ring or are you making a pair of earrings? Earrings are a great gift because there is no size involved.

It helps when you a rough idea of what you want to make. I have a facebookpage with a lot of pictures of the jewellery that other people made. The page is called metzenallen.
That is helpful to get a bit of inspiration of what can be done in two and a half hours :-)

We'll be handeling all kinds of tools because we are cutting with a jewellers handsaw, filing, sanding, hammering etc.
I'll show you the soldering is done with silver solder.

The last step will be a nice polish for some sparkle.

Some people are pretty handy and are able to do almost everything themselves. Others want a bit more than just guidance. I'll be there to assist you in anyway you want.

Do note that when you want to add gemstones or make multiple rings for stacking, please let me know. We'll need extra time. I will make room in my schedule. I am sure you'll understand there will be an extra fee for the extras you choose. There is a price list for extra's so you'll know that in advance.

Of course you can wear it straight away and have something to brag about ;-)
You will have your jewellery handmade by you in the heart of historic Haarlem, a fabulous and unique way to remember your trip!

Meet your host, Aukje

Host on Airbnb since 2015
  • 31 Reviews
  • Identity verified
After more than 20 years in the corporate world, I became an airbnb host in 2015. That same year I finished my training and became a gold and silversmith. Designing and making jewellery, just as I loved to do when I was a teenager. I was very proud to be acknowledged when I exhibited my designs in an art gallery Amsterdam, two years later.

I have been making jewellery with my guests for years and they encouraged me to make it an airbnb experience.

Next to two rooms, I have two experiences on airbnb.
"Forge a silver ring with a gem", which takes 5 hours and
"Forge a sterling silver ring or earrings", which takes 2,5 hours.

Where you'll be

We will meet in my 150 year old house on the canal, in the city center of Haarlem. (10 min train ride from Amsterdam)

My studio is located on the ground floor overlooking the canal. I have a work bench with all the tools and material needed and a large table to work on.

Since we are in the city center, I'll recommend to explore this beautiful historic city afterwards. Its famous for its architecture and many good restaurants

Aukje est une hôte vraiment adorable, pleine simplicité et de bonne humeur qui sait vous recevoir et vous mettre à l'aise dans son bel atelier. Mon mari a beaucoup aimé sa surprise où il a pu me créer une bague unique. Aukje parle un très bon français malgré ce qu'elle en pense. Elle prend le temps de nous raconter des anecdotes sur son pays, ce qui rajoute un plus appréciable. Merci Aukje pour cet excellent moment en votre compagnie. Brigitte et Hubert

We had amazing experience making silver rings. We came to Aukje with the ideas of the design and she explained and showed us the basic methods how this kind of jewellery could be made. Aukje helped us with the most complex parts of the process to make our rings look professional. Thanks a lot for such a unique experience ! I will definitely recommend you to my friends :)
