Silver and Turquoise Ring Workshop
The workshop teaches participants goldsmith skills, including cutting and polishing metal, using the workbenches, and learning how set gemstones into silver. The tutor will provide real silver to hammer and shape into a ring, as well as a selection of different colored turquoise stones and patterns for participants to choose from to design their own bracelet. Participants will also learn more about turquoise and how different regions effect the color of the gemstone. This class is recommended for participants who have experience with basic jewellery making.
