You will spend quality time in the studio classroom learning many techniques and improving your craftsmanship in a comfortable yet focused environment.

Inside Out Pendant & Ring

Class Description

Create a complex, three-dimensional sterling silver pendant and a complementary ring. The kinetic pendant is reversible! The centerpiece of this stunner is a unique drilled gemstone, encased in a one-of-a-kind bezel. The tiny silver beads will be able to move inside the pendant, from the front side to the back, creating a playful piece that is fun to wear. 

The ring has similar design concepts that allow you to get more experience with the techniques and further sharpen your skills. The unusual artistic composition of these pieces results in a class jam-packed with techniques, and personalized jewelry that is fun to both make and wear.


You will learn the following techniques from Robyn in this three-day class:

  • Design considerations
  • Soldering
  • Filing
  • Polishing
  • Cutting glass
  • Drilling
  • Shaping cabochons
  • Setting a stone
