What you'll do

Learn how to make a sterling silver ring from scratch, with our AWARD WINNING EXPERIENCE!

Start off by marking your silver to the length you require by choosing which finger you would like it on. Then, you'll use a handsaw to cut it to size, you'll learn how to form the ring, using a mallet to shape it to the ring mandrel. You'll watch as it is soldered in front of you by an expert tutor—all the time, she will explain exactly what she is doing. Then you'll learn to file it by using different hand files—this is fun, as it is when you get to individualize your ring, deciding what curve you would like it to have. This can make a great difference to the end result. Next, you'll choose from three very different textures. You get to use your creativity with the planishing hammer to achieve the texture you require. People love this part as it's when you make your ring truly individual. Finally you get to choose your polish. Some people like it polished only on the inside, to give it an artistic/rustic look. Others like the glittery sparkle of a fully polished ring. It's your decision. Then the best bit—you get to keep your ring! It's the ultimate souvenir for remembering your trip to Ireland. Enjoy!

this is a worthwhile experience. Even with zero experience the instructor ensures you come out with a ring you will be proud of. also amazing insight to how jewelry is made.

We got to file, bend and hammer a silver ring just the way we wanted. The host was very friendly and it was fun to learn how to form the silver into a ring with a nice pattern on the outside.

This was such a cool experience for myself and my friend. It honestly exceeded my expectations, as I figured the final product might look a bit rough, given that we only had two hours and no experience with metal working! However we are so happy with our rings, they turned out beautiful and we had such a nice time making them. Santi was a fabulous instructor and created a warm and fun environment for all of us. Would highly recommend this class, it was a fun and different experience to have, and we left with gorgeous pieces of jewelry! Thank you Silver Works team!

This was a really wonderful and enjoyable experience! We went in as complete beginners but our instructor Santi guided us through every step of the process and took the time to make sure each individual was following along ok. I'm absolutely delighted with my ring from this class and have a new found appreciation for the jewelry making process!

We had a great time and learned a lot about silver jewelry making. What a unique and cool way to spend a few hours while in Dublin. Great value for the price!

This was definitely an amazing experience, and I absolutely love my ring! The instructions were very clear, and the class size was small enough that our instructor was able to help us individually if we had any difficulties or questions. I would highly recommend this to anyone looking to learn and do something new, while also getting a personalized souvenir out of it! You better believe that I'll be wearing this ring everyday!
