What you'll do

Learn how to make a sterling silver ring from scratch, with our AWARD WINNING EXPERIENCE!

Start off by marking your silver to the length you require by choosing which finger you would like it on. Then, you'll use a handsaw to cut it to size, you'll learn how to form the ring, using a mallet to shape it to the ring mandrel. You'll watch as it is soldered in front of you by an expert tutor—all the time, she will explain exactly what she is doing. Then you'll learn to file it by using different hand files—this is fun, as it is when you get to individualize your ring, deciding what curve you would like it to have. This can make a great difference to the end result. Next, you'll choose from three very different textures. You get to use your creativity with the planishing hammer to achieve the texture you require. People love this part as it's when you make your ring truly individual. Finally you get to choose your polish. Some people like it polished only on the inside, to give it an artistic/rustic look. Others like the glittery sparkle of a fully polished ring. It's your decision. Then the best bit—you get to keep your ring! It's the ultimate souvenir for remembering your trip to Ireland. Enjoy!

This experience was amazing! Sinead was a rockstar and super helpful and accommodating. Great conversation and we were super happy with how the rings in our group came out.

I was a little bit nervous going into this experience to be honest, but the top notch instruction and help whenever I needed it really made it an enjoyable experience for me. I'm a bit of a perfectionist when it comes to my work and they really went out of their way to help me make my ring the best it could be! I've been wearing it constantly since my class!
