Ring forms

During this workshop you will learn how to solder a hollow ring and build it out of sheet metal. Hollow rings increase the wearing comfort. You can make a very large ring, but it remains very light. You will first work in copper and then in silver. Together we make different exercises: a hollow ring, convex ring, a box ring (or signet ring) and a fin ring.

Once you know these different forms, then you have the insight to make all possible forms and combinations in the future.
