Johnny Cash sang about a ring of fire but in this class we will make several rings using basic soldering techniques. You will become familiar with the torch, silver solder, flux and a variety of other tools to create stackable rings, earrings or a bracelet from sterling silver wire. *If you have taken previous classes, you can also use this as an open studio so you have all the tools plus instruction!

Spinner Ring – Metalsmithing Jewelry

Together we will create a spinner ring handcrafted from sterling silver sheet and sterling, copper and or bronze wire. These wire bands spin freely around a textured sterling silver band. The ring, also called a prayer or worry ring, is based on the ancient Tibetan Prayer Wheel. It is said this ring brings the wearer good luck and fortune, a sense of serenity and peace, and rids the wearer of anxiety and worry. However you chose to think of it, you just won’t be able to resist playing with these fun rings!

*Soldering I or equivalent experience REQUIRED.
