What you'll do

Cut, file, and shape your own jewelry in a private shop

Learn how to make a sterling silver ring from scratch, with our AWARD WINNING EXPERIENCE!

Start off by marking your silver to the length you require by choosing which finger you would like it on. Then, you'll use a handsaw to cut it to size, you'll learn how to form the ring, using a mallet to shape it to the ring mandrel. You'll watch as it is soldered in front of you by an expert tutor—all the time, she will explain exactly what she is doing. Then you'll learn to file it by using different hand files—this is fun, as it is when you get to individualize your ring, deciding what curve you would like it to have. This can make a great difference to the end result. Next, you'll choose from three very different textures. You get to use your creativity with the planishing hammer to achieve the texture you require. People love this part as it's when you make your ring truly individual. Finally you get to choose your polish. Some people like it polished only on the inside, to give it an artistic/rustic look. Others like the glittery sparkle of a fully polished ring. It's your decision. Then the best bit—you get to keep your ring! It's the ultimate souvenir for remembering your trip to Ireland. Enjoy!

My boyfriend and I recently went to the Collective as a little date night while he was in town. We were warmly greeted and taken down stairs where the lesson was led by Sarah. Sarah was awesome! Insightful, personable, friendly and eager to share her craft. Would HIGHLY recommend!

This experience was a brilliant way to connect with someone close to you and was also just very enjoyable. Would highly recommend as was very fun and quite informative. You get a rare insight into how ringmaking works and is very cool.

We really enjoyed the process of making our own rings, from a strip of silver to a fully polished and embellished silver ring!! Sinead was really friendly and helpful, and the whole process was extremely interesting with full instruction and assistance. The refreshments during the workshop were also most welcome!! The work of the Jewellers in the shop was also very impressive - very individual and unique pieces - a great Collective to support. Thanks so much!

Great experience, my wife and I loved it! It's quite hands on, lots of fun and you leave with both a memory and a beautiful, handmade (by yourself) reminder! Would recommend and I can't wait to bring my friends too! Safety note, we were in the first class after lockdown and we felt very safe throughout. Masks, plexiglass partitions, sanitizer, the works!
