What you'll do

In this beginner Silversmithing class, we'll pick out our own stone and create the setting and shank. We'll get familiar with the torch, jeweler's saw, flex shaft drill and anvil.

We'll solder the bezel, cut out the setting and file it flat. We'll then create your ring shank according to your own size and add them together.

We'll finish your ring by setting the stone and polishing the piece. All finished work is sterling silver and you get to go home with a brand new ring.

Patience is required. No experience necessary.
Other things to note
Please dress for the occasion! We'll be sawing metal and using messy materials. Don't wear anything dangly and please have closed toe shoes on. This activity is hands on and I repeat, messy!

Hello! I'm a full-time jewelry designer. I make custom one-of-a-kind jewelry here in my live/work studio in Springfield, TN.
In the 9 years that I've been making my own jewelry, I've started teaching people how to create their own pieces in short but effective workshops here in my studio out in Springfield, TN.

In my one woman owned business, I've been practicing and perfecting my wax carving, stone setting, 3D design, casting and fabrication. Some of my passions are yoga, lost wax casting, plants, old square body chevies and honky tonks.

*If there isn't a time that works for you available on my calendar, please message me, I'd love to make it work if I am available.*

Where you'll be

This experience is held at my live/work studio in Springfield, TN. We will be surrounded with plants and art in a woman run- creative environment. Springfield's slogan is "minutes from Nashville, miles from ordinary." & it truly has some Tennessee barn charm. You might dig around some antique shops around here to find it. While you're in Springfield you might also check out Born and Raised Market, Grain and Honey Bakery or Becks Farmhouse Coffee.

Don’t skip this!! It was something truly special and 110% worth the trip out the city. Leah is so much fun and is a great teacher. It was very easy to feel comfortable around her. It was just so cool to not only personalize a ring, but also assist in the making of it. Leah helped when I was unable to do something, which was super nice because I wanted it to look great! There’s no better way to commemorate a trip or moment in your life! I will cherish the experience and ring forever :)

We had so much fun making our rings! 10/10 recommend. Location was a little off the beaten path but it was worth it.

This was such a fun and eye opening experience to how rings are made and the process it takes! To start from a raw and flat piece of metal to something that you made personally with your hands and with the very helpful guidance of Leah was amazing!

Far exceeded my expectations. The love Leah has for her work is contagious. She was creative, patient and encouraging, let me do as much as possible and helped with the parts that weren’t so easy for me. I tried something new, left with a beautiful ring and a memory I’ll have for a lifetime. Thank you, Leah! 💕

Y’all, just do it! Our workshop with Leah was such a unique and rich learning experience, more than we ever could’ve hoped for. Leah and her sweet pupperino were just a hoot and a holler to hang with and Leah was sooooo incredibly patient and kind. Even though we were absolute newbies, Leah made us feel confident and empowered to try new things. Our rings are gorgeous and we couldn’t be more pleased with the results. She’s full of so many neat stories and adventures and is just a joy to chillax with.

Leah was super friendly and kind. She let us pick out the stone we wished to set. She showed us the process step by step and let us do the work. The rings are beautiful! She is a talented artist and amazing teacher.
