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!

This class is worth more then you pay for it and is so much fun! I had the best time and got to learn how to make a quality piece of jewelry. The next time I am in CO I will definitely be taking this class again!

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!

This was an awesome experience. Jimmy was a wonderful teacher and helped us really personalize our rings. He even taught my boyfriend a special technique because he wanted his ring to stand out. Beautiful location and very clean. I would definitely recommend this experience.
