3 Classes To Sign Up To This November at Silver Works Dublin

We’re just one week into November and already, diaries are filling up as we go full steam ahead into the party season. Dare we say it but before we know it, Christmas will be well and truly upon us. We’re here to remind you that among the chaos, don’t forget to factor in a little fun, – the mindful, creative kind as well as all that partying. 

This month we’ve got plenty happening with our almost daily Forge A Ring classes which are proving more and more popular with teams and Christmas parties and we’re hosting our first gold version of the bestselling class at the start of December due to popular demand to make gold pieces during the class. 

Here’s the low down of which classes to sign up for this month. 

Make a Silver Charm – Saturday 19th November

The Make a Silver Charm class walks you through a ten-step process to make an initialed silver charm or pendant. You’ll be able to wear the charm as a pendant and can make use of a special discount to purchase your own necklace to add your charm to or add it to your favourite charm bracelet. 

You can choose from eight different shapes for your charm, including (but not limited to) a circular disc, diamond, star, square, or heart and will learn different hammering techniques to create your own texture on the charm.

Choose to add your initials before drilling a hole in the top of your charm so that it can be added to your bracelet or necklace once complete. Final touches allow you to decide if you want a super sparkly or edgy matte finish for your charm. With the guidance of our expert teachers, you’ll learn how to create your desired finish using the polishing machine.

The class takes place over a two-and-a-half-hour period and by the end, you get to walk away with your finished, handmade charm, totally unique to you. 

Gemstone Setting One Day Event – Sunday 27th November

Our One Day Gemstone Setting Class is the perfect place to start if you want to try your hand at Jewellery Design and making or if you have existing skills from previous courses and want to develop your skills further and this one – happening on 27th November – marks our final Gemstone Setting class of the year. So if it’s been on your 2022 bucket list to invest in your creative skills, this is your chance to tick it off before the year is out. 

The class size is kept small so that our students benefit from getting the most out of their time with our teachers and so that you feel comfortable and confident exploring your new skill. 

In this fun, flexible, one-day class, you’ll learn how to set gemstones using a flush setting into a sterling silver ring or pendant. Gemstone setting can be a little tricky so to enable a focus on this skill in particular, all sterling silver rings and pendants are pre-made for you to practice setting your stones into. 

Spend the morning practicing on copper before going all in on the real thing and setting your gemstones into your final sterling silver piece in the afternoon. 

This class is open to all learning stages, with the support and guidance of our expert goldsmith tutors who are there to guide you throughout.

Forge A Ring – Gold Edition – Saturday 3rd December

While not technically happening in November, this is a class you’ll need to book ASAP due to high demand. 

We’ve been inundated with requests to offer a class where you can make your own ring, in gold, and here it is! 

For those of you who want to learn from scratch how to make a ring of your own, you now have the chance to do so in solid gold. For those who prefer more delicate styles to their rings, you can opt to use the 2mm square wire. The alternative is to use a 4mm sheet, the same as our bestselling Forge a Silver Ring class, but in solid gold. 

With the help of your expert teacher leading the class, you’ll learn the basics of jewellery making step by step and walk away with a stunning gold ring of your own making to love and cherish.

How To Plan A Creative Day Out On Drury Street, Dublin

How To Plan A Creative Day Out On Drury Street, Dublin

Here at SilverWorks we’re lucky to call Drury Street, Dublin’s Creative Quarter, home and have done so since 2017. Over the years, Drury Street has become one of the trendiest locations in the city, an area where independent coffee shops, vintage shops and those like us, dedicated to showcasing top quality Irish design reign supreme.

As Dublin starts opening up once again and we’re all itching to get out of the house, here’s a roundup of things to do on a Creative Day Out in Dublin within Dublin’s Creative Quarter.


Book A Class at Silver Works

Keep building on those creative skills you worked so hard to cultivate over lockdown and spend the weekend making your own jewellery at one of our Silver Works classes. Whether it’s our Forge A Ring Class, our expert tutors will guide you through step-by-step to create your own bespoke piece of jewellery. Spend the day laughing and learning with friends and walk away treasuring the fact that you’ve just added one totally unique piece to your jewellery collection.


Browse new collections at The Collective

With both of our sister brands – The Collective and Silver Works – in the same building. It’s hard to resist a quick browse of our stock at The Collective on your way out the door. With our stock of over 30 independent Irish designers, we have got everything from sparkling gems and jewellery to vibrant prints and homewares. Treat yourself and relish in the joy of supporting local talent.



Grab a coffee in Kaph

All that creativity and concentration from making jewellery calls for a caffeine refuel. It seems you’re in luck with go-to coffee spot, Kaph just a few doors down from The Collective. And for the non-coffee drinkers, rumour has it that they make a killer Matcha Latte too.


Stock up on vintage styles at Om Diva

Did someone say more shopping? You don’t have to ask us twice. Arguably one of the best vintage shops in the city, Om Diva also sells a curation of clothes from exciting emerging Irish designers upstairs. The bright colours, vibrant energy and creative team will leave you feeling energised and inspired all weekend long.
