What you'll do

We will start with a small introduction to jewelry, we will talk about the handling, care and safety required for the implementation of the workshop. At the end we will start with the technical learning of how to make a 925 sterling silver ring from scratch, starting with the mixture of metals to convert pure silver .999 to .925.

The techniques that we will handle will be casting by means of torches, sheet metal rolling (thinning and stretching the silver ingot) draft (cutting the silver by means of saw blades and jeweler's bow) ring making (silver bending and straightening), welded (Union of the different pieces of the ring by means of a torch and welding) and finally the finish that can be matte or polished.

Get ready to learn a new technique and take home a piece of jewelry made with your own hands.

We will provide you with all the necessary tools to learn and wear a sterling silver ring made by yourself. If necessary, we can meet somewhere in the middle and take a taxi to the workshop.

If you do not find an available date in our calendar, please send us a request to place the date you want to attend.

This was an absolutely wonderful experience. Both Carlos and Elba are so kind and patient and they make sure you fully understand the process. I walked away with a beautiful piece of jewelry and respect for the artisanal craft! I highly recommend this experience.

Such a fun experience. We worked with Elba who was through fun and friendly- immediately offered us coffee and water as soon as we walked in. The experience is a bit shorter than the time block, so don’t worry about it going over. I made a beautiful ring and my partner made a bracelet as he doesn’t wear rings. I’d recommend this to anyone that is spending any amount of time in CDMX.

This was a unique and extremely enjoyable experience. You're gaining a new appreciation for a trade and you also come out of it with a beautiful ring handcrafted by you, and it's something you can forever keep as a memory of your time in CDMX. The hosts are amazing, attentive, patient, and do everything they can to make sure you come out with an amazing finished product. I cannot recommend this experience enough.

If you visit Mexico City… you must do this!!! I surprised my boyfriend with this experience and we were both so thrilled. They really make you feel like home and teach you every single step in making the ring. It’s perfectly hands on and they are ready to help out if you need it. This was a wonderful experience and you go home with a beautiful ring. Highly recommend!

This workshop was incredible! Very hands on experience. The hosts are very encouraging, knowledgeable and accommodating. They helped me capture it all with photos. If I missed up they helped guide me and allowed me to redo it. Would 1,0000x recommend to anyone who has been curious about jewellery making or interested in getting their hands dirty. Loved it so much!!
