Cosa farete

Experience the excitement of making your own piece of jewelry! This is a three hour hands-on workshop, in which you will learn the silversmithing fabrication techniques to make a sterling silver band ring. All materials and tools will be provided for the workshop. Just come, have fun and learn! During the workshop you will be lead step-by-step through the processes. It is a very safe environment, however each participate will be asked to sign a liability waiver and safety will be discussed. The process begins by measuring and cutting a piece a sterling silver the desired width of your ring. Next the metal is annealed with a torch. Annealing is the process of heating metal with a flame to make it malleable. After each time the metal is heated, it is cleaned in a solution to remove the oxidation that is created on the surface. Once the metal is prepare, you will have choices of hammers and metal stamps to texture a pattern onto the sterling silver, creating your personal design. Then the metal is cut to the length required for your ring size, formed into shape and soldered together. The final steps are refining, buffing and polishing your creation to have a beautiful shine!

Dove ti troverai

Located in the beautiful Rocky Mountains between Boulder and Golden, Colorado, the workshop is hosted in my home studio. I am an AirBnB host and a silversmith, which means I love hosting guests and teaching classes. The studio is a comfortable size for two workshop participants. Each participant experiences the use of a professional jewelers bench and tools. Before and after the workshop, I encourage you to experience the beauty of the mountains.

The studio is in the mountains. We are in snow season October through May, so an AWD or 4WD vehicle is required for the 1/3 mile from the highway to my home studio during these months.
