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!

Amazing experience! Jimmy was so thoughtful and took you step by step through the ring making process and helped out immediately when you needed that little extra "am I doing this right?" Very personable and friendly and we all loved our rings! Highly recommend!

What a great experience, to make my own original silver ring! A great memento of my trip, and so unique. If you’re looking for something different, book this experience.

It’s been a little longer than a week since my experience, but I still find myself admiring the rings my partner and I made! Jimmy is incredibly knowledgeable and makes the more technical stuff easy to understand. I would absolutely recommend this to anyone who happens to be in the area!

We thoroughly enjoyed our session with Jimmy. He is very knowledgeable and patient. We each made a personalized silver band, sized and polished with Jimmy's detail instructions. He walked us through the process, step by step. Now, we have a beautiful memento from our experience. Will recommend this to all our friends.
