Design and make a couple of Silver Open Twist Rings and be inspired by the collection of textures and finishes available and let your creativity shine! You will be introduced to Piercing (sawing), texturing, shaping, and annealing with a gas torch to complete a couple of beautiful rings, but be warned this will include lots of hammering so it isn't quiet!
If you want to make these rings for a friend please find out their UK ring size before the class. The Tutor will help you build on the skills you learn across the morning and help you finish your pieces to a lovely polished shine. A set amount of Silver wire is supplied with the cost of the course allowing you to create some beautiful pieces you will treasure. There will be a 15 minute tea or coffee break included in the morning.
This workshop is suitable for beginners.

Tutor: Alex Twin
Alex worked for Links of London for many years as their engraver but now loves working from her own bench in her shed! (It's a very nice shed). She likes nothing more than making jewellery from scratch and wants to spread the joy of just how satisfying hitting silver with hammers and soldering with gas torches can be - the possibilities are endless!
