Ce que vous allez faire
We will start with a tour of the studio, have a cuppa and a talk about what each tool you will be using does. There will be a safety and care talk before we get down to choosing the sterling silver for your ring. We will be starting with simple shapes and you will learn how to measure your finger for your new ring to fit correctly. We will talk about textures and what tools are needed to achieve a desired effect. This lesson will also teach you simple silver soldering, pickling and filing. Once your ring is formed to your liking I will bring you through the polishing processes. Your lovely ring will be ready to wear home when we have completed the lesson.
Hi i'm Margaret a certified silversmith, jeweler and artist, living in Bettystown on the East coast of Ireland. I work from my purpose built bright artists studio located in my peaceful garden only 5 minutes walk from the Irish sea. I am proud to be a local jewelry maker as the most famous and historic pieces of Irish jewelry, the 'Tara Brooch', was found on Bettystown beach (yes, my beach) and is now housed in the National History Museum of Ireland. I love getting to know people, and teaching my jewellery skills to people who just love to know and experience how things are made, and what better way than chatting and learning about the process of silversmithing.

We have a very friendly Kerry Beagle and he loves meeting new people and having a play, but he is not allowed in the studio when people visit. Are you concerned about dogs in general? let me know.
