Rings, Rings, RINGS!

Rings hold a special place in the lexicon of jewelry and pretty much everyone loves them. In this three-day beginner’s workshop we will explore the basic construction of band rings, stacking rings, and rings with both bezel set cabochons and tube set faceted stones. Although rings can be relatively simple to make they do present a unique challenge, aside from the need to be comfortable and beautiful they also must fit! All students will leave with an understanding of how to measure, embellish, form, and solder both a basic band and shanked rings. Depending on experience level students may explore a variety of band styles and decorative detailing. Cutting, chasing and embossing for texture, as well as soldering and some forming techniques will all be covered. Every student will leave class with a handful of well-made ring that fits! All levels.
