January 2011: Silver Pendant Workshop

June 07, 2012

On Saturday 5th February Georgina Franklin and I hosted a workshop making silver textured pendants. The day began with Georgina demonstrating techniques including using the rolling mill, stamps, hammering, reticulation as well as all the basic skills of piercing and soldering. We then began to come up with designs with each student based on what they wanted to make and the textures they liked. Some students experimented with various techniques in copper to first, while others went straight into silver. We had fantastic results from everyone, a rich and varied day workshop!

Ring sizing

Sue makes rings to the size your select when ordering. If the ring does not fit, then she will re-size the ring free of charge (once only) providing:

  1. You (the customer) pay £9 to cover Royal Mail Special Delivery costs for returning the ring to you (can be paid by cheque or back transfer).
  2. You (the customer) ensure it's returned within 14 days of delivery.

Please contact Sue before returning a ring for a re-size; it is so useful to have a discussion to help gauge how much adjustment is needed.

Please note: rings must be returned via Royal Mail Special Delivery and opting for the appropriate insurance option to cover the cost of the item. Sue Lane is not responsible for the delivery costs of returning a ring for re-sizing or for lost or damaged rings whilst in transit. For more details, please read our Returns Policy.

Sue will happily resize, refinish or repolish the ring at any time after the 14 days have expired, but at a cost based on the time needed to fulfil the work which Sue can quote before you return the ring.

Not sure of your ring size?

If you are not sure of your ring size, please contact Sue. She can arrange your order and then post out a free ring sizer to you. You then simply call or email with the measurement.
