DIY Wedding Ring
Make your own wedding ring as a couple in the comfort of your own home or at the WMM Studio in the Forest of Dean under the expert guidance of experienced gold/silversmith Wendy. There is nothing so personal and unique as doing it for yourself and together – an experience which you can wear on your finger forever! The joy and satisfaction of having something so personal is priceless as the testimonials below show.
Size, cut, file and solder a practice ring in sterling silver (for you to keep too!) then shape and polish your rings together and learn a little more about metallurgy and the process of goldsmithing (or silversmtihing if you prefer your ring in sterling silver). After having practised with silver, you then make your ring in gold.
The cost of the workshop is £80 each (so one price of £160 covers the two of you) plus the cost of the materials used. Typically for a P sized ring this works out at around £68 for 9ct gold. You will be sent a ring sizer in advance to measure your fingers and so that we can order in the correct amount of gold.
The workshop takes about 3 to 4 hours and you’ll be kept in plentiful supply of coffee, tea and homemade cake/shortbread and homemade soup and a roll if we go over the lunch hour.
Optional extras include a glass of cava to celebrate your make at the end!
WMM studio overlooks green rolling hills and the french doors are kept open on a sunny day so you can walk on the balcony and enjoy the view.
