January 30 @ 10:00 am - 5:00 pm£25.00
Silver Gem Set Ring
Come and make your own sterling silver gem-set ring at this informative and friendly class in The Studio – workshop of Anna Fine Jewellery at Taurus Crafts, Lydney and lead by expert jeweller and tutor, Wendy Murphy from WMM Silver.
Suitable for beginners and improvers alike, you will be taught how to make your own gem set ring by creating the ring shank in sterling silver and then construct a bezel setting in silver for a semi-precious gem cabochon. There are a variety of options in terms of size and colour of gems (eg, sodalite, amethyst, chalcedony, onyx, carnelian, aventurine, green moss agate, green agate, goldstone, turquoise etc) – you can choose ! If you have a particular preference for a gem, just let us know in advance and we will do our best to accommodate you.
Here are a few of those options made by previous students:
Learn artisan silversmithing techniques and a little of the history of silver and hallmarking.
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.
The cost of the workshop is £110 which includes all materials (silver and gems), homemade cakes and drink. Please bring a packed lunch as the workshop will go on until approx 5pm.
Pay £25 deposit now, and the balance either a few days before by bank transfer or on the day with cash. I will contact you with all the information you need a week before.
