What you'll do
Everyone starts with a rectangular piece of sterling silver that that will be hammered, filed, and soldered into a cool textured ring band. After determining your ring size you will mark and cut your silver using a jewellers saw. Next we use a mallet to form the silver around a ring mandrel. Once your silver is round I will solder it closed while explaining the soldering process. Now we get to have fun hammering a texture into the surface of the rings and curving the edges with a file. Participants are given creative freedom with the hammer and files to texture and curve their rings as they desire. There are 3 textures to choose from and the textures can be combined as well. After all the hammering and filing we give them a quick polish, finishing them either shiny or matte, and your rings are ready to wear.

Where you'll be
Our workshop will be in my beautiful studio and showroom tucked in behind the art galleries on Clarksburg’s main street. Nestled under a large maple tree, my space is cool yet bright and I’m just 500 meters from the Beaver River, perfect for a stroll before the workshop. There are also great restaurants, coffee shops, and shopping in Thornbury, 5 minutes by car.
