The hollow ring is a classic jewelry design that is still stylish today. Malleable, but strong, metal can be shaped and formed in impressive ways. Using a “dog bone” style pattern, learn how to size and form a sterling silver ring. Then select and set a dramatic cabochon to complete the look. Additional ring patterns and artistic twists will also be presented, inspiring an exciting variety of creative options to make in your studio. This project is a great introduction to essential jewelry making basics including hollow forming, soldering with a gas fueled torch, filing, fitting, surface finishing and stone setting. Tools will be available for use.
