Jewellery Taster: Make a Ring
Rings can be the most personal and valued piece of jewellery to wear. They can symbolise both friendship and love, suggesting why they are often sentimental to us. If you are interested in making a ring for a loved one, a friend or even as a keepsake for yourself then this course is perfect for you.
