NEW! Self-Guided Course

Learn a Unique Ring Fabrication System with

Unlimited Creative Design Potential!

Unleash your creative design potential! In this unique, self guided course, I share one of my favorite ring fabrication systems. You will learn how to make ring blanks to any specific size, and then master the skills of fitting and adding multiple bezel settings, accents and wirework to create beautifully crafted rings with your own unique style.

 

It is my intention to help you raise the bar when it comes to making stunning, innovative pieces, and I’ve designed this course to speed up your learning curve,  help you break through some of your  technical and design hurdles,  and reach into your limitless creative potential.

Module 1

The Band Ring

 

Duration: 1h 05m


In the first module, you will learn to make a cylindrical ring blank and fit different types of wire perfectly and tightly, for different band designs, both for wedding or other uses.

Module 3

Developing Complex Designs

Duration: 45m


Here I give you some ideas about designing more complex rings as we explore different ways to add dimension and complexity, including the use of hollow forms, steps, borders, and shank variations. Then we delve into my sketchbook, and I show you a simple sketching system to help plan out your next ring project.

Module 2

Single Stone Ring with Accents

Duration: 2h 30m


In this module, we work on filing, bending and other fitting skills, to make a ring with a single, bezel set center stone, with accent and shank wire elements.

Module 4

Concept to Construction

Duration: 37m


The fabrication skill level goes up another notch, as I share, step by step, how I approach the design and execution of an advanced, 5 stone ring, from the sketch all the way to the finished piece. I show you my fabrication process, including the development of the design, my approach to tackling different difficult filing and soldering situations,and how I spontaneously change the design as the project unfolds.

Bonus: Module 5

Ring Sizing

Duration: 57m


Learn how to cut out or add just the right amount of material to get the desired size, and one way to size a ring with a heat sensitive stone. I also cover some uses of the ring stretching machine, and discuss design planning to make your rings easier to size down the road
