What happens in this class?

Hosted by award winning jewellers Milena Kovanovic (Crucible London) & Ros Millar and The Ringsmiths team. In this direct casting method, molten metal directly fills a design carved/imprinted into the surface of a cuttlebone. Producing a finished three-dimensional cast object - in this case a signet ring. This technique is one of the earliest known casting processes used by man for thousands of years.

Over the course of this 4 hour workshop we will teach you everything you need to know about how to prepare and cast your very own silver signet ring. You will have plenty of opportunity to…

FAQs
Can I cast my ring in solid gold?
Yes, the most cost effective way to cast your ring in solid gold is to create it in silver and then on the day of the class we would weigh your silver ring and quote you for it in solid gold by creating a mould and lost wax casting it. We have done some 9ct signets recently and were coming out around £300
Can I make more than one signet ring?
Yes you can take home any additional rings you make in class for £75 per ring

Rachel Kay - 25 September 2023
What a fantastic workshop! So well organised, lots of fun and a ring to take home at the end of it. Highly recommended as a treat for yourself/ a gift for someone else/ an activity with friends. Thank you so much!

Absolutely incredible! The Ringsmiths ladies are so helpful and friendly. They walk you through each step and helped with what you needed. After seeing how we would make a ring I did doubt my abilities and their guarantee that we would each leave with a ring. But I didn’t need to worry, they know their stuff and we each made a work of art. I loved this workshop and would do it again! Thank you ladies, hope to visit again one day. ❤️

I booked this as an anniversary present for me and my partner and we had a great time. We both really enjoyed the whole process of casting our own ring with this traditional method, and the people running the course were very friendly, and incredibly patient when I kept pouring the molten silver inaccurately (got there in the end with some great support!) We both love our finished rings - such special things to own!
Edward O’Hanlon - 26 June 2023
My partner and I had the best time, the girls were all lovely and made our whole experience really enjoyable! I’m sure we will be back soon!

This class was a lot of fun, I didn’t realize how many steps were involved and all the instructors were extremely kind and welcoming. I enjoyed the hands-on class and ended up purchasing an additional ring as well. I loved the uniqueness of the process and how my rings turned out. I definitely would recommend and want to come again the next time I visit London!

A fun experience for all, you don't need to be a professionally trained jeweler to make a work art! Everything is explained well, so you are prepared to create your vision! Would highly recommend if you are a lover of rings and handmade items.

A great workshop for anyone looking to add or start their ring collection. The teachers were great! Very clear and informative, making sure we all came out with a ring we were happy with. Would 100% recommend everyone try it out, it is fun and accessible for all, and you don't need to be Picasso to create an amazing piece.
Ahmed Chohan - 26 January 2023
Honestly amazing, the team were absolutely wonderful from start to finish, giving the right amount of instruction and supervision without just doing everything for you. Super friendly with a remarkably cute dog too!

I had such a great time on this course and would 100% recommend it to anyone who wanted to try making some jewellery, or just wanted to try something new! The teachers were amazingly supportive and true experts in their craft. The location is perfect also, being so central, and the studio space itself is nice and intimate. I will absolutely be booking another class in the future. Thank you so much The Ringsmiths!

The workshop was great! Such a fun way to spend a day. I loved learning how to make the ring and also getting creative choosing design, jewels and metal type. Would highly recommend as a present or something to do with friends.
Rhiannon - 31 August 2022
We had the nicest day taking part in the signet ring making class, which I purchased the class as a gift for my partner's birthday. The class was super hands on and intimate – we felt like we really got the time to try out everything and learn from Ros and Milena and the space is lovely. We were super happy with the results of our labours too! Thanks again x
