Make a Sterling Silver Ring or Bangle
Come and make your own personalised sterling silver ring or bangle at this informative and fun class in the beautiful surroundings of Middletown Farm in Upleadon. The owners have created a wonderful haven of peace running an organic farm with a shop selling crafts and food produce.
During the workshop, you will be taught all the skills you need to size, cut, file, solder and polish your ring or bangle by expert silversmith and tutor, Wendy Murphy from WMM Silver.
You can add stamped lettering inside and hammer a texture.
Always enjoyed with very proud and satisfied customers. The workshop price includes all materials, sundries, insurance and homemade cake and tea/coffee/apple juice.
Tickets are limited to 6 and if you buy a ring workshop ticket you can always upgrade to a bangle on the day if you wish.
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.
