Soldering with Charles: Spinner Rings

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 resit playing with these fun rings!

Soldering I or equivalent experience REQUIRED.
