You’ll have the choice of making either two slim stacking rings with a semi-precious stone or a wider ring with added texture. All the rings are made of sterling silver using traditional silversmithing techniques.
Keen participants will also have the option to make additional rings in the workshop. You can arrange this online while booking, or on the day with card or cash payment. An additional textured stacking ring is £10, a stacking ring with a semi-precious gemstone is £15 and a wide textured ring is £20.
During the class, you will practice a range of traditional silversmithing techniques.We’ll start things off by sizing the ring and measuring the silver needed, before filing and shaping the silver Then you’ll use a blowtorch to solder it, adding unique textures with our collection of hammers, before polishing the ring to your desired shine and finally setting the stone (the traditional way – without glue!).
Members of the Noctua team will be on hand throughout this process to support, advise and teach you the skills needed while allowing you to make the ring independently. Those making stacking rings can choose from our wide range of semi-precious gemstones on the day.
