Spend a day in the workshop learning to create 3 unique sterling silver stacking rings with gemstones! Each ring will be made from a different shape of wire: square, twisted, and half-round. Using bezel and basket/prong setting techniques, students will learn to set a 3 mm gemstone into each ring. Since stone setting is best practiced on synthetic and lab-created gems, participants can choose from cubic zirconia and synthetic sapphire, ruby, or emerald. These one-of-a-kind rings can be worn as solitaires or stacks. Customize them all for yourself or create them as gifts for your loved ones!
All levels of experience welcome. With small class sizes, you will have the opportunity for in-depth lessons and one-on-one assistance.
All materials and equipment are provided. Please wear close-toed shoes, comfortable clothes, your hair tied back, and no scarves or loose clothing (such as long open sleeves that could pose a safety hazard).
Workshops will not run until sufficient enrollment has been met. We recommend students register at least 10 days before class start dates to avoid disappointment.
The more the merrier! Feel free to spread the word to friends and family as this helps ensure classes will fill to capacity.
