Join our Bombé Ring short course, led by acclaimed jeweller Bibi Cheung, to create larger, lightweight forms that are comfortable and elegant to wear.
Bombé rings, with their graceful curves and refined lines, will add a distinctive flair to your jewellery-making skills.

Under Bibi Cheung's expert guidance, explore traditional construction and forming techniques, while refining your soldering and hammering skills. Over four days at the Goldsmiths’ Centre in London, immerse yourself in traditional bench work, creating a three-dimensional hollow ring using silver sheet.
