Handcrafted Jewellery Workshops: Stacked Rings @ NewMakeIt

Description: Learn the basics of ring forming, ring blank sizing, and torch soldering in one evening! In this workshop, you'll create a set of simple, minimalist rings that can be worn either individually or together as a stack. Design & create your own set of stacking rings made from copper, brass, and sterling silver round wire. Consider a mixed-metals look, or mixing different textures & finishes within your stack -- e.g., a hammered vs. smooth finish, or a brushed finish vs. a mirror-shine polish. Come away from the night with a completed set of stacking rings, handmade by you! There will be extra cost for precious metals. Meet the Instructor: Gwen Park Gwen is a jeweller inspired by the form, colors, and textures of objects, both artistic and common, such as architecture, paintings, and fabrics in fashion. Her work is based on emphasizing clarity and creating designs predominated by abstract motif and simple geometrical lines and shapes, but at the same time, emphasizing patterns and textures, making a balance of work in harmony together. Her designs derive their values from the artistry, craftsmanship, imagination, personality, and spirit of their maker! Born in Seoul, Korea, both of her parents were greatly involved in the fashion profession for over 30 years. Gwen’s talents and creativity originated from them, but she initially could not see that until jumping into the jewellery field! She first started learning metalsmithing by making items such as tables, candle holders, mirror frames, etc. However, she wanted to do more detailed, ornate, creative, stunning, and pretty works of art, and entered the jewellery world! Since 2006, she’s been challenging herself into the real world on being acknowledged as a great jewellery designer and artist, both locally and internationally.
