Spinner Ring Workshop

About the Course

Spinner Ring-making Class
In this Workshop you will create a silver spinner ring, which is a two-banded ring, one ring stays in place while the other spins freely on top. These types of rings have many names including meditation, worry, turn, swivel, prayer or motion rings and people find them useful for relieving stress and anxiety, meditation or as a stim, discreetly fiddling and turning them throughout the day – double duty from your pretty jewellery!
You will have a choice of metals including silver, copper and brass to create the spinning element of the ring and you will learn traditional techniques throughout the course as follows:

• Accurate measuring, calculating, and cutting to a correct size.
• Annealing.
• Soldering.
• Texturing.
• Shaping and forming.
• Finishing

The workshop is suitable for students who have done a workshop with Bigbury Mint before or who already have some basic jewellery making skills.
This class is on Saturday 20th May 9am-1pm £79

Your workshop will be run by our Silversmith Vicky –
Your tutor, Vicky, has been designing and making jewellery since 2012 when she studied at Penwith School of Art in Cornwall. The first tap of a hammer ignited a passion for jewellery making which has seen her complete a degree and set up her own small business. Over the past few years, she has enjoyed teaching the art of jewellery making at Bigbury Mint.
