What you'll do

We will begin with a peek in the Gallery, featuring jewelry handcrafted by US artisans, and a tour of our Studio School. I will also share some history of our 1890 Victorian-era building. In the workshop, you will use steel letter stamps and a hammer to impress words of your choice onto sterling silver strips. Then, you will form the strip into a circle and solder it together (with help). Finally, oxidize (blacken) the ring, and polish to your desired finish. We limit the workshop to four students to guarantee lots of personal instruction, as well as the opportunity to get to know your classmates.
Other things to note
Unfortunately, our Victorian-era building is not fully accessible to the handicapped.

I’m Jennifer and I’ve been making art all of my life, from drawing and painting to my current passion, jewelry making. I own Wear Ever Jewelry Gallery and Studio School in charming Alexandria, Virginia, where I teach students to create unique and personal jewelry using traditional hand techniques. You will be guided through the jewelry making process by me and/or Beth, our goldsmith with 30 years of experience. I’ve been making and exhibiting my own jewelry for 15 years and my Master’s degree in Jewelry and Metals equips me with a thorough knowledge of design and techniques. My work has been honored by the jewelry industry’s Saul Bell Design Awards, Niche Awards, and MJSA Vision Awards.

It was an excellent experience from start to finish. Very informative and had the comfort knowing they could fix any mistake a beginner like me was bound to make!! They were also excellent in talking us through the steps and we got a lot more hands on work than I expected.

My partner and I had so much fun making our rings! It was so special to go through this process together for the first time. Great service through the whole process. They come with an exceptional amount of experience and guidance that they incorporate into their teaching. Some of the friendliest people you will meet. We highly recommend!

This was my first experience on Airbnb, and I absolutely loved! This class was the highlight of my vacation . The teaching was spot-on, engaging and the results incredibly. The communication was top notch and the location is absolutely perfect! So many restaurants and shops to visit including Wear Ever jewelry. Jennifer is a wonderful hostess and Beth is so passionate and knowledgeable about her craft and a good instructor. This class is great for couples or for solo travelers like myself. I definitely recommend this experience:)

Such a great experience if you love being hands-on and want to create a memorable ring (for yourself, with a partner, with friends or anybody!). Jennifer is such a patient instructor and makes sure that the ring turns out exactly how you want! Highly recommend!

Making our own rings was such a fun and unique way to celebrate a special event or having something creative to take home. We really enjoyed it and found Jennifer and Beth to be so helpful and patient.
