Gloucester Gem Set Ring
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 y
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 £98 which includes all materials (silver and gems), homemade cakes, shortbread and hot drinks and squash. 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.
Please note that cancellations will incur a charge of £15 unless your place can be filled by another. I will do my best to ensure that the place is filled, but I cannot guarantee it. This is to cover my own, unrecoupable costs.
