We are excited to introduce resin workshops with Tanya, our sole maker here at Milk Diamonds. Tanya is an experienced keepsake jeweller and silversmith.

This is an intermediate level course aimed at people with a bit of experience of making jewellery or working with fiddly details.  Day one will involve making a sterling silver ring using wire and attaching a sterling silver bezel. On day two you will make a cabochon stone containing your inclusions which can include breastmilk, hair, ashes, fur, or fabric. (Breastmilk will need to be sent in prior for preservation). You can design your own stone to perfectly suit you. You will end the sessions by fitting the stone into your ring Any findings/precious metals used are not included in the workshop fee and will be charged the current price on the day.
