Make your own ring as a unique gift or a custom piece of jewellery to keep in this private experience with The Silver Duck. With the help of Charlotte, The Silver Duck’s owner and an independent local creator, you’ll use the tools and techniques to make and finish your own piece. Charlotte has been teaching and hosting workshops since 2013.
For this experience you can choose to make three delicate stacking rings or one larger statement ring. Charlotte can help you with design inspiration but she finds it always helps when a guest comes along with a design or style in mind. She will have sample designs and images to help you decide on your own personal design.
Once you’ve developed your design with Charlotte you’ll choose, cut, shape and hammer your silver. If you’d like any texturing on your finished piece you can practice texturing techniques in copper first. This is a chance to make your own memorable piece of jewellery as a gift or something special to keep, with an experienced Bristol maker.
For Charlotte, it all started when she was given a wire jewellery making kit as a gift. She was already interested in art and design but after creating those jewellery pieces she decided to study for her degree in silversmithing, metalwork and jewellery. Charlotte now makes her work out of her Old Market Manor studio, a space she shares with other creatives from jewellery makers to woodworkers. She's passionate about sharing her craft and giving people a glimpse of the techniques and the time it takes to work with silver. Charlotte’s aim with all her experiences is to allow people to be creative, have fun and go away with a piece they’ll be proud of.View more experiences by The Silver Duck
