I had the pleasure of running a jewellery workshop for three lovely ladies on Saturday. We based the day around making rings and they very quickly decided on their designs. Both Pat and Sandra loved the same design, while Anne wanted to make a ring that worked with her own bangle and represented the members of her family. We enjoyed the hot summers day by sitting outside for lunch before returning to the studio to finish the rings. I managed to get some photographs, but as usual we were so busy I forgot to capture the early part of the day. The rings they made were lovely and everyone left the studio delighted!
Sandra's ring. At this stage we had reticulated the surface of the silver, soldered the gold wire to one end, then used the pliers to shape the ring.
Anne preparing to solder the 3 rings together.
A piece of solder sat on the join of the gold ring before Anne soldered it.
Pat is filing the ring to give the edges a clean sharp look.
Sandra filing the ring before soldering the final gold edge.
The second gold bar was soldered in place, then they where cleaned up before oxidising.
Anne polishing the small gold loop to give it a high polish.
Pat is gently rubbing the surface with a pad to remove some of the oxidised surface to reveal the silver below.
The finished rings!
