Make a Sterling Silver Spinner Ring – Friday Evening


You spin me right round baby!  Also known as mediation, prayer, fiddle, fidget and worry rings, these rings are often used for meditative contemplation and a guide for the wearer to return to the present moment.

Spend a Friday evening with tutor Nadine in this 3 hour creating your own unique sterling silver spinner ring using our rolling mill to press your designs into the silver, layering one or two bands of sterling silver, copper or brass over your chosen pattern to create your spinner ring.

Whether a hobbyist, enthusiast or exploring a career in jewellery, we will explore fundamental jewellery making skills and at the end of your workshop you will take home either an 8mm or 10mm sterling silver spinner ring.

Materials are included in the cost of the workshop and no experience is necessary.
