Make a Silver Ring — Beginners Silversmith Workshop with Noctua Jewellery
November 27, 2021 @ 10:00 am - 12:30 pm
The famous carol may say ‘five gold rings’ are the most festive, but in this workshop, you’ll learn to create your very own from sterling silver – perfect as a Christmas gift for a loved one, or as a treat for yourself.
Guided by experts from Noctua Jewellery, you will make either two slim stacking rings with a semi-precious stone or a wider ring with added texture. All the rings are made of sterling silver using traditional silversmithing techniques.
The class is ideal for complete beginners, and you will practice a range of traditional silversmithing techniques including sizing the ring, measuring the silver needed, filing, shaping the silver, soldering, adding unique textures with our collection of hammers, polishing the ring to your desired shine and finally setting the stone.
There will be members of the Noctua team at hand throughout this process to support, advise and teach you the skills needed while allowing you to make the ring independently. Those making stacking rings can also choose from a wide range of semi-precious gemstones on the day.
If you use glasses for reading then we recommend you bring them on the day, along with wearing old clothes. You will need to wear closed toe shoes and tie up long hair.
