MAKE-DAY: Silver Stack Rings
You will be guided through making a set of three silver stack rings with different textures and finishes which are unique to you and made by you!
With between 8 and 10 fellow makers it will also be a fun social experience finished off with a glass of bubbles whilst admiring each others creative achievements!
Price is per person.
What will I make?
You will make three silver stack rings using a variety of different techniques to form and texture your rings which you can mix and match and stack together.
What will happen on the day?
You will start the day with a tea or coffee and croissant whilst getting to know your fellow makers, and looking at examples of what you will be making. You will also be supplied with everything you need including pad, pencil, apron, silver and tools.
After measuring the finger you decide to wear your rings on we will work out how much silver you will need. You will then bend and form the silver to make your rings, and solder and texture them before applying a polished or satin finish.
For and additional £30 per ring you can also opt to yellow gold or, rose gold plate you rings for that ultimate special finish. This is done at a professional platers so will need to be collected or posted to you a week later.
We will end with a little glass of Prosecco or, non-alcoholic beverage if preferred, to admire your creative achievements!
