Enjoy the satisfaction of making something for yourself that can be worn every day with this silver wrap around ring workshop. Starting from a piece of sheet sterling silver you will learn how to cut, shape, form and texture metal to create a special piece of jewellery.
Recreating the textures from shells, pebbles and our wonderful coastal views out of the workshop, Laila Smith will expertly guide you through the process one step at a time. Starting off by getting your ring measurement, you will learn how to cut the metal to size to get a perfect fit. Before tackling the silver there will be pieces of copper to have a practice with first, so you leave with exactly the ring you wanted.
This workshop is perfect for beginners who want to have a small taste of jewellery making.
Laila Smith is a jeweller based on the south coast of England. She designs and makes simple, elegant jewellery using geometric forms that are crisp and beautifully crafted. The work is made in solid silver with gold vermeil accents as well as a range of 18ct gold and silver rings and currently details an obsession with geometry.
