    Carolina is awesome. Very knowledgeable and patient to beginners. I made a few rings under her guidance but with complete creative freedom. I'd love to stay in touch with her in the future for any advice I might need as I continue to make jewelry. I'd definitely take her class again.

    Caroline is a natural born teacher. She explains everything clearly, both upfront and then by demo, walks around the class to ensure we're all "getting it" and staying on time so we can finish--and she's lovely.

    Ayaka was a pleasure! The class was fun and unique, and I got it as a surprise for my fiancé, who said it was much more enjoyable than a cooking class (which I later revealed that I considered getting instead). We were the only two doing the one-day jewelry class, but other attendees were in advanced workshops at the school. So it was also really cool to see what they were making and to aspire to more advanced studies if we wanted to sign up for more classes. I thought the ring we made was super cute!

Discover the Best Ring Making Classes in NYC

Ring making is an art that involves creating beautiful adornments worn on fingers. Most people think of a ring as a band of gold or silver or another precious metal. However, rings can be made from a variety of materials. Ancient rings are known to have been made from flint or bone – materials that niche ring makers still craft from today. Other materials for making rings include polymer clay, enamel, and wood, among others. 

The tools a ring maker needs depend on the material they wish to use. For instance, woodworkers need a drill, while clay crafters need a rolling pin and crafting knife. However, all ring makers usually make use of a mandrel or a set of gauges for measuring ring sizes. Metalsmiths need the most heavy duty tools including a saw, hammer, soldering torch, workbench, safety equipment, and others. 

While the various tools and techniques may seem intimidating at first glance, ring making does not need to be an expensive or complicated hobby. The craft is accessible to jewelry makers of all skill levels, and beginners will find many simple techniques to get them started making beautiful pieces in a short amount of time. 

Why You Should Learn Ring Making in NYC

Starting a new hobby provides benefits that can boost your mood and well being. In general, people report feeling happier and less stressed after engaging in a creative activity like ring making. Learning a new talent and viewing your success in it is also known to provide a boost in confidence and self esteem. 

Ring making can also open social doors. There are several arts and crafts events and groups in NYC. Aspiring ring makers can join jewelry hobby groups and meet people with similar interests. These new individuals are excellent sources of guidance and encouragement to new hobbyists. Having a reliable community to fall back on can help decrease feelings of loneliness. And every new community an individual connects with brings the possibility of finding new friends.

Some hobbyists earn income through ring making. While this isn’t the norm for everyone, some ring makers sell their creations and generate enough money to cover expenses from the hobby. Others are skilled enough in the hobby to bring in part or full time income. If you prefer to keep your creations or give them away, the other advantages to ring making will still serve you well.

The Student creates three separate pieces during the two-hour course. The cost of the silver and tools are included in the course. Prospective students must be at least 18 to register.

Couples can register for a private Wedding Band Workshop. Students should know what they want to make and must pay an additional cost for the required materials. The class is broken up into two three-hour sessions. Students will spend the first class creating casting models. The rings are cast outside of class by the instructor, and students return on the second day to finish their pieces. The class is suitable for all skill levels.

They will learn techniques for creating wax models for casting, creating bezel settings, and identifying gemstones.

Upon completing either of the beginner’s courses, students may continue their education through the 6 Weeks Jewelry Design/Making (Intermediate & Advanced) class. Students can choose to make a ring, earrings, brooch, or pendant. They will learn new wax casting techniques, and how to work with gold, silver, or platinum.
