Dive into the art of jewelry making and learn to make your very own stacker rings! In this experience you will have the chance to make up to 7 rings at the Walker Jewelry Studio using traditional silversmith techniques. I will teach you to silver solder with a torch, cut metal with a jeweler's saw, file and polish metal. I have sterling silver and brass material options for you to choose from to make your own custom souvenir rings, or make rings for your friends and family members as gifts. This experience is perfect for duo travelers, solo travelers, and groups who are looking to make memories and wearable souvenirs. Bachelorette parties and corporate team building groups can now book private classes with me for parties of 10 or more. Also, did I mention that my shop is near the lake? Drive around the neighborhood afterwards while admiring your new hand made rings and enjoy this truly unique side of Nashville.
I fell in love with metal working in 2005 after exploring photography, fine art, glass work, and pottery. I started my company, Walker Jewelry 5 years ago with a passion to share jewelry craft with others. I'm originally from Charleston SC where I began my metalworking career as a coppersmith. Later I was educated in Jewelry craft/design while living in Copenhagen, Denmark. I moved to Nashville with the ambition to start my own ethically sourced and made jewelry company after studying sustainable design. Currently I make custom jewelry, teach make your own wedding workshops, and encourage customers to become apart of the craft process through design and hands on jewelry workshops
