ABOUT THE COURSE

Is it really possible to make a sterling silver ring in one day from scratch – with no experience at all? Well, it certainly is at SquarePeg Studios.

This one day jewellery making course makes a great gift and is a great introduction for students who would like to see if they enjoy working with metal. It’s perfect for those who would like to make a ring for themselves, for a partner or friend.

Students experiment and sample copper (some make a copper ring first) and then incorporate these new skills into a sterling silver band. All tools and materials, including copper and a silver strip, are provided.

Very intensive class, but Danielle the tutor was excellent and extremely patient with everyone. The small-sized class made the lesson very personable. Would definitely recommend to anyone thinking of an introduction to jewellery making, specifically to do with rings.

Amazing class, the teacher, Danielle was very clear and thorough. Could definitely feel like her experience as a jeweler was rubbing off on us. Definitely recommend this as a couple's activity. I did this with my boyfriend and we both loved the experience and the end product. There was plenty of help, equipment and facilities were really good. Danielle made sure all of us came away with a beautiful silver ring!

When I saw “a silver ring in a day” I just knew I had to play. It was harder that I thought it could be, but I got through it smiling and my ring is so shiny. Danielle was an absolute dream, she helped us all, become silversmiths. Ok, we might not be there quite yet but I’m so happy to see my ring, made by me :)
