My name is Eric and I am a spoon ring maker. Over the years I've had the opportunity to handcraft thousands of spoon rings. And for a long time, I've wanted to share my process to anyone curious about how they are made or who'd like to learn how to make their very own. In this class I am presenting all of the steps I've learned along the way, from start to finish!

What You'll Do
Students will leave this class with the knowlege needed to create an antique silver spoon ring. A one of a kind piece of jewelry that will last for generations to come.
Simply the desire to know how a spoon ring is made. If you'd like to make one yourself, you'll want to find a silver spoon. Sterling silver is a softer metal to work with, but silver-plated flatware works great as well. I avoid stainless steel and stick with silver. Students don't nessesarily need the equipment covered in this class or a silver spoon in hand to begin. Simply the desire to understand the complete makings of a spoon ring.
