Crush Opal Inlay Ring
Inlay rings have been around for centuries in many different forms, and they've lasted because they're just so beautiful!
Today we have the added joy of an array of man-created opal colours that create a truly eye-catching ring, so bring your sense of humour and prepare to get sticky, as we forge from scratch, a gorgeous crushed opal inlaid ring!
This is an INTERMEDIATE level class, and will require the student to have a grasp of soldering and forming with a butane torch, as we make the initial ring.
What you will learn
- This is a great class for working on your ring-making skills. We'll be discussing design, comfort and function as we work on our projects and bumping up our skills on fitting and soldering.
What you will get
- You'll be with me from 10:00 am to 6:00 pm (unless you're all speedy and we finish up earlier!) so I'll have coffee and tea are available for you at anytime, and when we break for lunch, there are a number of cafes and eateries nearby, or you can bring your own lunch if you prefer.
Parking is easily available in Dorset Square. If you're coming for a 3 hour class, you can park anywhere the 3 hour limit is sign posted. If you're coming for an all-day class, you can park on the roof level of the Coles Parking Building for free all-day parking.
What to bring
- Nope! Just yourself as everything you need will be provided in class.

Headbands are great to keep it from falling forward of your face. 2) Clothes should be of natural materials: Cotton, bamboo, hemp, wool etc. Polyester and Nylon are made from plastic- and plastic melts if something hot lands on it! Sleeves need to be rolled back out of the way, and an apron tied over your clothes to stop anything loose from falling forward. T-shirt and jeans are a great choice, with a flannel shirt if it’s a bit chilly. (I will have an apron here to cover your clothes, so you don’t have to bring your own.) 3) Just like our bodies, our feet need protecting too. Tools are sharp, things are hot, and everything falls downwards if we fumble, so closed toe shoes are a must. Boots, sneakers- anything without gaps will do. 4) Personal jewellery should have as little ‘dangle’ as possible. Charm bracelets and chunky rings are gorgeous but get i
