Create a moveable feast of rings in this workshop dedicated to all of us who believe fingers are meant to be adorned.  In this class, we’ll focus on making a beautiful ring with a decorative, double-sided top that revolves in its shank.  When the wearer so desires, she can just flip the top for a completely different look.  It’s the elusive “twofer” ring!

Techniques covered will include building the ring shank and a hollow-form top, setting a swivel wire for the top, stone setting, appliqué, and the 24k keum boo process.

Basic metal clay experience required.

    Hi Jonna, The website is beautiful. I wondered if you have considered a class for bronze clay – without firing time. Since many of us have kilns at home, perhaps you could do a design/construction class and we can fire at home. Just a thought. Love you, Kamal

  4. Sylvia Jimenez says:

    I would also be interested in bronze clay but I don’t have a kiln.

      Hey, Sylvia, No worries! I have one and do firing for students at a minimal cost. I still think about the fabulous work you did in Pauline’s class. See you tomorrow!!! Big hugs, Jonna

      • Sylvia Jimenez says:

        Thank you for your kind compliment. I would love to take another class with Pauline some day.
        I am interested in a bronze clay class but unfortunately I am not available this weekend. Maybe next time around. I love the pendant you made!
        See you later today.
