5. The Ringsmiths: ‘Design Your Own Silver Ring’ Workshop


For those who prefer gifting experiences rather than material items, one experience you don’t want to miss is the ‘Design Your Own Silver Ring’ workshop at The Ringsmiths.

Learn the art of wax carving and sculpting to form your very own unique silver ring, in this widely used jewellery making technique. In the workshop, participants begin by sketching out their ring design before carving the design into wax. Your carving is then prepared to be cast, finished, and polished by Ros and Milena using recycled silver.

You will leave the workshop equipped with the knowledge and skills to make your own silver ring, which can be picked up from The Ringsmiths’ Oxo Tower Wharf studio or posted to you within 3 working weeks. A wonderful Christmas gift for those who love to create!
