Make a Sterling Silver Gemstone Ring – CRAFT MONTH

This event is part of our August CRAFT MONTH Series.

Spend your Saturday morning with tutor Fabio Oliveira learning the art of crafting silver jewellery, with a focus on bezel stone setting, and learn how to make your very own cabochon gemstone ring set in sterling silver in this 5 hour workshop.

Whether you're a complete beginner or have some prior jewellery making experience, this class will provide you with fundamental jewellery skills and knowledge and serves as a foundation to future stone setting techniques.

Choose from golden rutile quartz, Tibetano turquoise, malachite, crysocholla, citrine quartz, labradorite or moonstone, and at the end of your class you will have your very own stone-set sterling silver ring to take home.
