Here’s a little explanation of what goes on at this workshop and some images of previous students’ work. “Make your own”
If you are making your ring or bangle for someone else it’s important you try to find out their size...
For a ring: Bring either a ring that fits the person with you, or get their ring size measured at a jeweller, or wrap a study piece of wire around their finger and twist. It should go on and off easily. Bring the “ring” with you on the day.
For a bangle: Bring either a bangle that fits or measure from the middle of the outside knuckles of their hand when clenched. It should fall between the range of approx 60mm to 70mm. Average is 66mm.
At the end of the workshop you’ll not only have some lovely personalised jewellery to take away, but also a huge sense of well being, pride and achievement.
