Què farem?

You will produce at least one, but most likely three sterling silver stacking rings to wear home. During this experience you'll learn about the tools and equipment and then how to size, form, saw, solder, shape, hammer (texturize) and polish sterling silver using tools such as a caliper, jewelers saw, files, multiple hammers, a butane torch and a flex shaft among others.

First, we measure your finger and determine the length of sterling silver wire we'll need to use. You'll then saw the wire, form and prepare it for soldering, seal the joint with a torch, shape it into a perfect fitting ring with a hammer and mandrel and file and polish until it's ready to wear. We will do this as many times as possible and in brass as well - time permitting.

I will teach you how to use and care for the tools and materials as well as the various possibilities with your new skills and how you can set up your very own jewelry studio after falling in love with your new skill set.
Other things to note
Safety first, so please remember your mask, closed toe shoes and something to tie your (if long) hair back. All materials and equipment will be provided otherwise. Also, a small dog does live here in case you have allergies.

I've been making jewelry out of silver and brass for the last 10 years after completing several years of metalsmithing classes at the School of Visual Arts in New York City. I've been selling my jewelry on Etsy as well as a few boutiques in Los Angeles since I moved here in 2013. I've recently begun teaching the art of jewelry making out of my home studio with great success and adore doing it. I also have experience in wax mold making and beaded jewelry fabrication and would be happy to tailor the Airbnb experience to your specific taste if we talk/plan ahead of time.
If you would like to book, but don't see an available time that fits your schedule please send me a message to see if we can figure one out. Thanks!

On aniràs?

You will visit my home studio which includes all of the aforementioned tools and equipment and my darling chihuahua, Dinky. I also love music and if given enough advance notice can create a playlist tailored to your preferences as background while we work (and dance).

Bianca did a great job teaching me how to make two silver rings. She has a knack for explaining what could seem like a big complicated process in a way that breaks it down into its smaller parts and makes it seem very doable. I was a little nervous to solder but she had safety equipment and made me feel confident I could do it- and I did! I wear the rings I made all the time, and that is super satisfying. Highly recommend this experience!

Bianca made me and my fiance's experience super fun and enlightening. She was really patient with me and talked us through every step and why we did it. Her studio was intimate and I loved that she allowed us to do everything ourselves. We went a little over our time but did not feel rushed at all. I tend to be really shy when meeting new people but she helped warm me up with conversation and her warm personality. We ended up with 3 rings each and a smile on our faces! I couldn't recommend this experience enough because it's really unique and you gain a deeper appreciation for this craft. If you want to do different jewelry piece that you had in mind, don't hesitate to message her for more information. Bianca is flexible and will make your lesson tailored to you and your skill set!

Bianca was amazing! She has all the tools, and never lets you feel like any of the craft is out of your reach. She’s extremely creative and professional, and you’ll feel that as soon as you walk in the door. You will for sure leave with a product you are proud of, as well as a piece of art you could pass down from generation to generation. Thank you Bianca!! 🤙🏻🤙🏻

Bianca's silver class was a great experience. She personalized her teaching based on our interests and experience. She also fostered good conversation while we worked.

Bianca is a wonderful host for the experience! She made sure I could participate in the process as much as possible, which I really appreciated. I also got to try making a ring out of a patterned wire and I love how it turned out! Since the wire is a bit tricky to clean, I was worried about running out of time but Bianca was so nice and patient that she let me finish polishing it. (Thank you!!) I left with three pretty rings and I totally enjoyed the experience. I would definitely recommend it to others!
