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!

I loved this experience! I lived making my own ring! I usually way over do things and end up with junk, but this artist was so good at helping that I made a lovely ring that I am crazy proud of! I loved that he walked me though ever point in the process, but had me do everything myself.

My girlfriend and I did this together and it was a great experience. Jimmy was very welcoming and knowledgeable and enthusiastic to share his art with us! Between the workshop and the tour of the studios, the 3hrs flew by! We both now have custom made gifts to remember our time in Denver. We had an awesome time!

What an amazing experience! I am SO thrilled I did this! Jimmy was an excellent instructor, patient, logical, warm, generous. I cannot believe how beautiful the rings were I created! Everything about this experience was special - the drive up the mountain, the views, the lesson, their sweet rescue dog Purdy. Everyone should take this experience and create a lasting, special gift for yourself, wedding bands or anniversary bands, a gift, a memory ring. It was Mother’s Day and he helped me create 2 for my kids. Cannot wait to surprise them. I actually got choked up with how beautiful they are. I wish I knew he also does Airbnb stays! I would have definitely liked more time in his beautiful cabin! An absolute fantastic value and experience!
