Ring Sizing Masterclass with Stephen Barnett Saturday 20th April 10-5pm

£155.00 Inc VAT

There are 7 different commonly used methods to size a ring up or down. In this class we will look at each of these and discuss the practicalities of each method and when they are appropriate to use.

Ring sizing is difficult. Hands change over time and finger sizes can alter due many factors including temperature changes. Therefore, it is a task a jeweller will encounter on a regular basis to be called upon to reduce or increase a ring size.

Do you know what to do? Can you make a ring 3 sizes smaller and accurately know how much to cut out?

Would you know how to size up a ring up and put a piece in it so you can’t see the join? What if it has stones in it?

Professional Tailored Wedding Bands with Stephen Barnett Saturday 18th May 10-5pm

£155.00 Inc VAT

So you think you can make a ring?

A simple case of purchasing some wire, prepping yours ends, bending it up, soldering it together and shaping, and it’s complete?

But what if the customer wants something a bit different?  Perhaps they require a reverse D band 8 x 1.8, size W or a trapezoid profile 3 x 2 mm, size J? How would you make these shapes by hand? How do you calculate the amount of metal you need to buy?

In this class we are going to look at how to make unusual shaped bands from scratch using nothing but 6 x 6 mm square silver stock.
