About This Class

The Barcelona Ring class continues with the Intermediate Silversmithing series, taking all the techniques you have learnt in Silversmithing for Beginners and adding a challenge to help you advance your skills!

Intermediate Silversmithing will include stone setting, forging, mixed metals and much more, and in this class the focus is on setting a half-drilled pearl securely on a ring. The class also covers some new hints for texturing with a rolling mill, and I'll be there to help you every step of the way.

The equipment needed for the project is explained in the videos and also listed on a downloadable document. I have kept the equipment needed to a minimum, and all the equipment listed can be used for a variety of other jewellery making projects.

The Sea Waves Ring was designed as part of the Ring A Month 2019 challenge. February's prompt was Music - and as I love Queen and Freddie Mercury's music "Barcelona" fitted the theme for me perfectly! For more about the challenge visit www.facebook.com/groups/makearingamonth/

In addition, if you need a little extra help to make sure that you have set up your rolling mill correctly the class below will help you:
