Gloucester – Gem-Set Ring – 26 March – 1 PLACE LEFT
March 26 @ 10:00 am - 4:30 pm£25.00
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 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 £115 which includes all materials (silver and gems), homemade cakes and hot drinks. Please bring a packed lunch as the workshop will go on until approx 4 to 4.30pm.
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 up to a week before the workshop unless your place can be filled by another. Any closer than a week and the full deposit will be forfeited. I will do my best to ensure that the place is filled, but I cannot guarantee it.
