I had a very fun, interesting hands-on special learning experience with Lois doing her Rubies and Raspberries 22K Gold Ring making adventure. I learned the art and intricacy of making ancient jewelry with a master jeweler that took me from the start to the completion of making a 22K Gold Ring embedded with my choice of a Ruby, Sapphire or a Diamond. Technique and the process of the fabrication of my ring was explained thoroughly along with a sense of fun and exploration into the history of ancient jewelry making. Lois is warm and friendly but serious about process and detail and she makes the most beautiful custom 22K Gold Jewelry for private clients as well as select jewelry stores and galleries. I would highly recommend this jewelry intensive class to anyone who wants to learn this art in a casual and relaxed setting with a highly experienced teacher who makes the learning process fun and memorable. P.S. I love my 22K Gold Ring with a Sapphire Setting. Thank you Lois!
