Adorning the finger has been a tradition for ages. Rings are loaded with historical meaning and they symbolize love and marriage, evoke nostalgia, embody authority or status, and portray accomplishments or affiliations. This workshop explores jewelry design, fabrication, basic stone setting and assembling techniques for creating a ring. You will fashion rings of personal importance, expression and adornment. The class centers around lecture and demonstration with time for individual attention. Open to all skill levels.
COURSE FEE: $600
