Tube Set Rings Workshop - Friday 22nd March 2024
Start by learning how to make a simple silver band and then add a sparkling touch with beautiful faceted stone!
Tube-set stones are a lovely contemporary style, and with a range of both stones and textures for the silver to choose from everyone will leave with a beautiful and unique piece of jewellery.
The class is perfect for beginners to jewellery making as it teaches many of the basic skills needed for more advanced skills, and is a great introduction to stone setting. However those with previous experience will also find their skills tested and improved by the end of the session. You will also have the opportunity to make one or two plain silver rings to wear stacked with your tube-set ring.
14 to 16 year olds are welcome but will need to be accompanied by a paying adult.
Tea, coffee, biscuits and cakes are included in the workshop fee, but lunch is not provided.

10am-4.30pm Friday 22nd March 2024 at Fairways House, Mount Pleasant Road, Southampton Hampshire. Full directions will be emailed.
Materials are available for purchase on the day. The exact cost of the materials will be determined by the size and therefore weight of the ring you make and the price of silver on the day, and also the cost of the stone that you choose. However material costs for most rings in the range of £8-£12, and they would normally retail at between £35 and £40.
