Melt and Create - Jewellery Workshop
At Richard James Jeweller its all about the experience and we love our clients to be part of the story.
We offer an opportunity to make your own wedding rings in our workshop. Why not create an extra special and memorable experience that becomes part of your love story.
We do not require you to have any experience as you will have exclusive use of our workshop with one on one instruction and guidance by one of our experienced Jewellers.
The first step is a design consultation where we discuss the process and the options available with regard to the materials you wish to use. We then book your workshop session. This consultation can happen in our boutique or on video call.
Your workshop session will take 4 hours for couples and 3 hours for individuals.
The following times are available via appointment:
Couples Melt and Create
