What you'll do

Today we will create a sterling silver ring that incorporates a stone-setting for a piece of Arizona turquoise from Kingman, AZ. This turquoise is AAA grade and hand cut and picked for color and quality. In our 3 hours together, we will learn to size, texture, form, and solder our ring. We will then use a bezel setting to hold the stone and apply it to the ring. Polishing the piece is next and then we will set the stone to complete this unique ring for you to wear home or give as a gift for that someone special. Take a piece of Arizona turquoise home in a ring that you created in this exciting and hands-on jewelry adventure. Please keep in mind that each piece of turquoise is hand-cut and polished, variations in size, shape and color occur. I will have several for you to choose from. :)
Other things to note
Closed toed shoes are required. Long hair should be tied back, or guest should bring a hair-tie.

I have a Masters Degree in metalsmithing, jewelry design and fabrication. I have been working and teaching in the jewelry field for 25+ years and have taught at several Universities and Colleges throughout this time. In 2008 I opened the Blink Gallery and extended the gallery environment to include a full jewelry teaching studio. Blink Gallery allows for 1-5 students to learn skills in a comforting, hands-on environment. This intimate learning atmosphere allows for each student to achieve success in their designs and create jewelry that they can be proud to wear home or give as gifts. :)

Amazing experience! Ingrid has a wealth of knowledge and is an excellent teacher. It was so fun creating a personalized ring with her that is born out of the Arizona soil. Couldn't have asked for a better time and I'm so happy to take such a treasured memory and souvenir home!

What a special treat today attending my very first jewelry making class. I received individual instruction from a pro at her trade. She expresses a passion for what she does and shared her knowledge while assisting me to create the perfect ring! I can’t wait to take another class and will bring my out of town guests too!

It was a great session. Ingrid showed me and taught me so much more than just making the ring but the science behind it. It was great value and fun. I love my ring

Ingrid was expertly informative, personable, spicy and friendly. I loved every minute. If I lived in Arizona I would ask to become her apprentice. I loved the turquoise ring I made. I got compliments on it right after I made it. After the class, I left the gallery and went to a local smoothie shop and got a compliment on it right away. I told them where they could go to make their own. Ingrid was very organized and punctual in starting her class. She kept great conversation during her lesson and taught us effortlessly to where if I had the equipment at home I could duplicate the experience. I recommend this experience to anyone who wants to have a fun experience left with something they could take home or if you wanted to expand your knowledge of soldering and jewelry making. Take her class, shop in her gallery! Enjoy. You will laugh and have fun.

What a perfect way to spend a few hours! It wasn’t just making a ring, that doesn’t do this justice. We learned about the process on a much deeper level. The science behind it. The chemistry, the physics, why you do things this way instead of that way, how to make a ring that will last you your lifetime. What better souvenir to take with you than that? We spent much of this workshop laughing and enjoying our time. Coming from cold Colorado ready for some sun and ended up spending my afternoon inside and loving every minute of it!
