What you'll do

We will begin with a peek in the Gallery, featuring jewelry handcrafted by US artisans, and a tour of our Studio School. I will also share some history of our 1890 Victorian-era building. In the workshop, you will use steel letter stamps and a hammer to impress words of your choice onto sterling silver strips. Then, you will form the strip into a circle and solder it together (with help). Finally, oxidize (blacken) the ring, and polish to your desired finish. We limit the workshop to four students to guarantee lots of personal instruction, as well as the opportunity to get to know your classmates.
Other things to note
Guests will have their temperature taken before joining the group. Face masks are required. Unfortunately, our Victorian-era building is not fully accessible to the handicapped.

I’m Jennifer and I’ve been making art all of my life, from drawing and painting to my current passion, jewelry making. I own Wear Ever Jewelry Gallery and Studio School in charming Alexandria, Virginia, where I teach students to create unique and personal jewelry using traditional hand techniques. You will be guided through the jewelry making process by me and/or Beth, our goldsmith with 30 years of experience. I’ve been making and exhibiting my own jewelry for 15 years and my Master’s degree in Jewelry and Metals equips me with a thorough knowledge of design and techniques. My work has been honored by the jewelry industry’s Saul Bell Design Awards, Niche Awards, and MJSA Vision Awards.

I booked this experience for my boyfriend’s birthday and we had an amazing time! Our rings came out great and it’s awesome that we were able to make them ourselves. My only comment would be that it felt very slow and found ourselves on our phones periodically waiting for the other people to catch up. I would 100% recommend this experience!

My husband and I came to Jennifer’s workshop on our first anniversary to make celebration rings. It was such a fun experience for both of us. The host is such a sweetheart and we loved every minute of it.

This was a fun activity for me & my partner on a day we spent exploring Alexandria old town. Our work stations were thoughtfully organized, and she guided us really well throughout the entire process while also giving us full ownership of making our rings. She was very kind and humorous when we needed her help to fix our mistakes too! Overall a lovely wholesome experience, thank you!

I took my fiance here for her birthday. We had a blast, especially for this being our first time making a ring. I would recommend this as a great date activity.
