I have been wanting to learn about making rings and stone setting for a long time but other techniques always kept grabbing my attention first. But finally I had the pleasure of taking a three week ring making workshop for school. And it was amazing!
And exhausting! For ten hours a day Monday through Thursday and as much time as I could find around my part-time job on the weekends I was immersed in all things rings and settings.
It was an intense challenge but worth every ounce of effort ten times over. Part of the challenge was the sheer number of projects.
In eighteen days I managed to make twelve rings, two engraving tools and a sample gypsy setting. It was amazing to see how much I could accomplish in a short period of time once I truly applied myself.
For everything I did there is more that I look forward to experimenting with and practicing over the rest of summer and beyond.
Several of these rings are now available through my etsy shop with more on the way! Check it out and get a handmade ring of your very own!
