Stacking Rings with Gemstones
Instructor: Dana Cassara
April 20 and 27, two Tuesdays, 10:00 AM – 1:30 PM
Class Fee: $175 | Basic materials included

Prerequisites: Basic metalworking skills helpful but not necessary!

Stacking rings are fun to mix and match and super easy to make! But they can be so much more than a hammered wire ring. This class will focus on creating delicate stacking rings with unique patterned wire with and without sparkling gemstones. Students will alter the wire provided by hammering, twisting, drawing and rolling it. They will learn to size, solder and clean up their bands. Finally, they will create simple tube settings for a round faceted stone, and set the stones!  Everyone will make several rings giving them the opportunity to practice the process and leave with a finger full of beautiful rings made from brass, sterling silver and gold fill. Basic metal working skills are helpful but total beginners are welcome!


Materials INCLUDED:

 

  • Brass, sterling and gold fill wire in various gauges
  • Sterling silver tube to create stone settings
  • Faceted, round cz’s for setting

Students MAY Bring:

  • Additional round stones sized 2-4mm
  • Additional metal to incorporate into projects
