Programma

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
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.

Truly a superhost! The time allotted for this event flew by since we were having so much fun learning and making our rings. Each workspace is equipped with everything you'll need. The fact that it's a small group makes the experience very personalized. We are not experienced whatsoever in jewelry making and Jennifer was a patient and thoughtful educator; in addition to making it very fun.

Honestly, if you haven't booked your experience yet you are missing out. Not only do they take the time to individualize and personalize your experience, they really help you create great quality work! I did the ring making experience with my boyfriend for our 3 year anniversary and I look forward to bringing my friends to do the bracelet making one soon. I even hope to be able to take some of the classes they offer soon to help me with my own jewelry making journey. 10/10 Would definitely recommend, I love our rings and enjoyed the experience more than I could've even imagined.

This was a great experience entirely! Jennifer and Beth were both great hosts that made the process of making our rings so enjoyable. I would definitely recommend this to anyone in the area looking for a great memory!

Was looking forward in trying this out with my wife for our anniversary date, but as soon as I found out I had Covid I wanted to keep Jennifer and her guests safe, and decided to not attend. The Host Jennifer on the other hand didn’t want to reschedule us for a different day and wouldn’t consider a refund even after I sent her proof of my test results. I tried reaching her several times to resolve this and come up with fair solution, but still no response. I guess taking someone’s money was easier than trying to solve it like adults. It’s ok what comes around go around. I’m sure she will get her karma in the end. Just be very careful when booking with her online, there’s no way in getting a refund in case of an emergency and she will keep your money without a rescheduled date. Best to find somewhere else where you will be treated fairly and understood.

This was such a fun experience. Jennifer was so nice and encouraging. There were enough steps to keep things interesting but not overly complex (which tends to be stressful instead of fun). We love our rings!!! The shop also had some beautiful, unique items for purchase.
