One of the top 10 things to do in Sanur. Award-winning classes and workshops in silversmithing and this particular class is one of the favourites...a gemstone 3 hour experience where you learn how to make a ring and set it with a beautiful stone of your choice from our collection.
This half day class experience is ideal if you are short on tour time. 3 hour workshop for solo or group travellers. All inclusive with gemstone and silver.
We give you all the basics we teach in a half day class, with the addition of being given the frame for your gemstone already done (chose from a "bezel setting" which is rounded and is pushed over the stone....or go for gems that are set in claw settings - see below).

That's right, we do the more difficult bit for you and you get to concentrate on the decoration! You choose your gem from our selections and it's pre-made frame. Your focus will be on making the band of the ring and the fun decoration bit!
You can use a variety of hammering techniques, stamping with our gorgeous stamps from little heart motifs, to initials, boats, flowers and more....as well as combining copper and brass too if you want to give your ring added depth. Then you can apply silver balls and wire detail to the bezel or claw setting. It gives you more freed up time to really think about designing your unique piece.
Let's give you a few examples of "half day gemstone setting" rings, pendants and earring designs below so you can see what is achievable is a morning or afternoon with us:
