The All New
3-Ring Circus
$435 three-day class
Richard Salley and Jessica Jordan team up to bring you an intensive 3-day workshop that focuses entirely on the process of ring making. In this series of workshops we will be presenting how to make 3 rings, 3 different ways in 3 days. Whether this will be your first foray into ring making or you want to expand your ring making knowledge, you will leave the workshop with newly acquired skills that will launch you into a new level of jewelry making.
Day 1:
The Hollow Donut Ring – Begin your Circus experience with a basic design that is determined to get you geared up and primed for the other types of rings you will learn to make.  Although simple in concept, the Hollow Donut Ring has unlimited design possibilities...mix metal, add stones, create patterns and textures to name a few options. On Day 1 you will learn how to properly size a ring for any given gauge of metal, how to resize a ring once it has been made, and how to finish your piece in a polished, professional way.
Day 2:
The Prong-Set Ring – Continue your Circus experience on Day 2 by creating a sterling silver prong-set ring. Not every stone fits nicely into a conventional bezel and a prong setting offers options that usual bezels can't offer.  We will also discuss various ring shank possibilities. Learning both how to create a prong setting and securely set a stone are two skills that can easily be applied to an infinite number of ring design possibilities. A valuable addition to your jewelry-making arsenal!
Day 3:
The Stone-On-Stone Ring – The grand finale!  End your circus stint by stacking stones!  Learn another way to add interest and intrigue to your rings. Everyone will want to know how you manage to secure one stone on top of another. On Day 3 the mystery will be revealed and you will acquire a skill that will blow the lid off the design possibility big top!  From here, the sky is the limit!
