From the creation of the silver sterling alloy
At the beginning of the experience, I will show you the kind of ring you can create during the workshop among several examples.
Then you will start by creating the solid sterling silver alloy in order to melt a ingot and stretch a wire or a silver sheet according to the model ring you want. A magic moment!
Through sawing, hammering and welding
After we got our wire or silver sheet, it will come time to saw, then hammer your ring to give it a texture, a pattern. You can also choose to make it smooth.
Once you got your the pattern of your dreams, you will weld and shape the ring to close it and make it round!
To the polishing
One of the last steps is filing to remove scratches and other knocks and make your ring as soft as possible using sandpaper.
And the final touch will be the polishing! We will use the polisher and its different brushes to bring out the shine of the silver. You can also choose a matte finish!
I will be present and advise throughout the entire manufacturing steps, so that you can leave with your jewel and all material (sterling silver) and tools will be provided.
