What you'll do
Before we meet, I will chat to you either by phone or email about your option to use silver which is included in the course price or to purchase gold (Priced by weight, based on your ring measurments and requirement and market value at that time). When you arrive this autum and as we move on towards winter you will be welcomed for your wedding ring making day with a hot drink and a chat by the fire. This is when we get to know each other a little and confirm how you want your rings to be, whether you want to make your own rings, or make each others. The day will be exclusive to you as a couple and you will both have ample time to learn the goldsmithing skills needed to make your pieces in a relaxed but professional setting under my expert guidance. We will break for something hot, delisious and home cooked for lunch before getting back to the workshop to finish your forever rings. If you wish, your rings can be sent to Dublin Castle for hallmarking and will be sent back to you then.
I have bundled together my 20 years of skills and expertise as a goldsmith along with my love for teaching, great people skills, a passed life as a chef and growing up in the hospitality industry. I’ve put all this together in our beautiful home in rural Sligo to offer something really very special. I have been working closely with couples for a long time to make their special engagement and wedding rings for them, now I'd like to give couples the very exclusive and special experience of making their own wedding rings in a unique day designed for just that one couple.
