What you'll do

Experience the excitement of making your own piece of jewelry! This is a three hour hands-on workshop, in which you will learn the silversmithing fabrication techniques to make a sterling silver band ring. All materials and tools will be provided for the workshop. Just come, have fun and learn!

During the workshop you will be lead step-by-step through the processes. It is a very safe environment, however each participate will be asked to sign a liability waiver and safety will be discussed.

The process begins by measuring and cutting a piece a sterling silver the desired width of your ring. Next the metal is annealed with a torch. Annealing is the process of heating metal with a flame to make it malleable. After each time the metal is heated, it is cleaned in a solution to remove the oxidation that is created on the surface. Once the metal is prepared, you will have choices of hammers and metal stamps to texture a pattern onto the sterling silver, creating your personal design. Then the metal is cut to the length required for your ring size, formed into shape and soldered together. The final steps are refining, buffing and polishing your creation to have a beautiful shine!

If you're looking for a fun and unique experience, book this silversmithing event right now! My husband and I were so impressed with Jimmy's expertise. Jimmy walked us through the entire process to make silversmithing our own rings super easy to follow. We also left with beautiful unique silver rings that we made on our very own. The three hours flew by. Jimmy demos first and then we each take our turn. This way, you always know exactly what to do step-by-step without feeling confused or rushed throughout the process. Jimmy explains the science behind silversmithing so it's easy to understand and how it relates to each step. Not only do you get an amazing experience, you go home with your own one-of-a-kind silver ring. I chose to put my initials on my ring whereas my husband chose a pattern. Both rings turned out AMAZING! Don't worry! Jimmy gives you plenty of time to play around with sample copper strips so you build confidence with the tools and process. Overall, I would highly recommend this silversmithing experience! Not only is Jimmy clearly an expert in this field, he does an amazing job teaching the process and making sure you're having fun learning!

What a great and unique experience! We came intending to make rings as souvenirs from our vacation and left with a new set of skills. Jimmy is the perfect teacher and the studio space is amazing.

Omg! This experience was amazing! It was very fun to learn all the steps involved in making a ring. My girlfriend and I personalized each other’s rings and it was so much fun. Jimmy was awesome! Very patient, knowledgeable and caring. The most exciting part is imprinting the ring with your own creativity. This is a 5 star experience! I’m more than satisfied, and I would definitely recommend!

This is, hands down, one of the coolest experiences I have ever had. Jimmy was so friendly and helpful! The space was clean and well maintained. Jimmy was great at giving instructions and now my husband and I have matching rings that we made ourselves. If you are looking for something a little different when in Denver, this is it!
