  • Description

    Join me at my home in Cornwall for a workshop experience where you will have a taster session in learning to make jewellery from sterling silver. You will size, shape, solder and texture your ring, before adding a pre-made accent and finishing with a polish.


    During the session you will create a single ring from sterling silver wire with an accent that will have been pre stamped with a symbol or letter (a selection will be available on the day). You will have the option to try different techniques to apply different textures to the ring to truly personalise, before polishing so it is ready to wear.


    A short distance away from St. Ives there is free parking available on my driveway.

    4. Please bring a jumper/hoody/cardie in case you get chilly as I will open windows to ventilate during soldering.
