San Miguel de Allende, Mexico

Experience hosted by Alejandra

  1. 3.5 hours
  2. Hosted in Spanish and English

What you'll do

You'll forge your own Silver ring with Mexican Opal!

You'll learn the properties of Mexican Opal, you'll experience the process to make a silver ring and you'll leave with a unique silver jewel made by yourself!

First, we'll explain the mystical properties of the Mexican Opal and you'll select the gem that has the greatest connection with you.

Then you'll take the measurement of your finger and you'll cut the silver by yourself using jewelry techniques, you'll solder the ring, you'll forge it by hitting it and once your ring has the required shape, I'll solder the cabochon of your gem and I'll set the stone while I explain each technique step by step.

Finally, you'll finish your ring by filing and polishing to give it the finish that you like the most ... shiny, matte, oxidized ...

If you come as a couple or with your best friend you can make each other's ring! Just an idea!

The experience will take place in our Workshop in San Miguel de Allende, which is located in our own house, we can meet at some point in the center of San Miguel, and our adventure will begin!

During this experience you'll learn about the mysticism of the Mexican Opal and about the work and techniques used in jewelry to work precious metals and create a ring.

At the end, we'll taste a delicious pizza accompanied with fresh Mexican fruit water, to relax and conclude this wonderful experience.

Where you'll be

Our workshop is located in our house, in an area independent from our home, we live just 10 minutes away from the center of San Miguel, in a rural area, with a lot of silence and tranquility, which helps us a lot to develop our creativity.

The workshop has an exceptional view! We can appreciate beautiful sunsets!

We would love to open the doors of our workshop and share a pleasant moment with you !!

Hands down one of the coolest things I’ve done! Alejandra and Jesus were very sweet and thoughtful. They are knowledgeable and creative in their craft. Jesus patiently explained every step of the way, and guided us in creating the perfect ring! I would highly recommend the experience to anyone looking to do something original.

Interested in a big, impersonal group tour on the beaten trail? Then this experience is not for you! My daughter and I spent a wonderful afternoon with Alejandra and Jesus at their home, learning about Mexican opals and going through the whole process of making a beautiful ring. Jesus is a patient, encouraging and skilled teacher. They are both warm and interesting people, sharing their creativity and experience. Highly recommend.

I surprised my husband and our daughter with this experience and I am so delighted i did. They were a little apprehensive at first because here we are in a foreign country where they don't speak the language and they are about to get dropped off in a place they are unfamiliar BUT it was the BEST!! Alejandra and Jesus were so gracious and welcoming and my husband and daughter loved it! It was a great father / daughter bonding experience and they walked away having made new friends and beautiful new rings.

This class was the best thing we did in San Miguel. Jesús and Alejandra were so kind and chill! We showed Jesús the vision we hand for our rings and he went out of his way to make them incredibly special and cool. He was so intentional about making sure we loved them, and really trying to craft something unique for us. You could feel how passionate they are for their craft, and how that excitement translates into teaching you about ring making. We absolutely loved our rings. 3 hours seems long, but it genuinely flew by, you have such an awesome time making them from start to finish. I loved how hands on you get to be with really crafting your ring and making it your own. This class makes you appreciate the craft of ring making and just how much goes into jewelry. I cannot recommend this class enough, if I could give it more than 5 stars I would. Jesús and Alejandra even arranged transportation back for us. They are such a cool, creative couple who really love what they do and it shows. We had such an great time with them, and feel like we’ve made new friends.

The ring making was really great intense experience- and what fun to make something all unique for me. I learned a lot about the special Colibri stone too - unexpected! Hosts were super kind and generous with their time and knowledge. I really enjoyed it. And even made an extra ring for my husband!

This was a truly wonderful experience!! The whole day was so delightful. Alejandra was a wonderful host and her jeweler husband, Jesus, was knowledgeable, personable, skillful, patient and truly talented in teaching beginners. My girlfriend and I walked away with beautiful opal rings. I will cherish mine! I highly recommend this experience!
