Make your own engagement ring for her or him.
Engagement rings celebrate a life event, making them more personal and important than most jewelry. Together we can create a romantic symbol of your love by teaching you how to make your ring with your own hands.
To create a ring that is more than just beautiful, I invite you to my studio to work together as I teach you step-by-step the process that has captivated artisans for thousands of years. Under my guidance, we can craft a professional quality engagement ring.
You can work with gold or sterling silver to create a a unique engagement band. At the end of the session, you will leave with your ring and a new appreciation for fine jewelry.
