NI Silver is in the business of 'creating memories' for people; memories of their time on this island, memories on this earth and memories of special time spent with loved ones.  We believe our time spent with others critically important to us mentally, especially now that we've come through a global pandemic.   So come and spend time with your loved ones, putting your creative skills to good use and make a  handmade and handcrafted ‘Wearable Memory’.

Our 3-4 hour jewellery making workshops for small private parties of up to 3 people are great craic (fun) and very relaxing.  No previous jewellery making experience is necessary as Ruth (our goldsmith) guides you through the traditional techniques of piercing, filing, soldering, hammering, cleaning and polishing your special creation.  So come and relax in our contemporary studio.  Our ‘experience days’ are tailored to meet your needs and allow you to take home a piece of handmade jewellery at the end of the workshop, one that you have hand-created yourself in Northern Ireland. 

Based in beautiful Holywood Hills, we are 10 minutes from Belfast's City Airport, a 10-minute drive/train journey from Belfast City Centre, and/or a 7-minute walk from Marino train station. We are also 2 minutes away from the Culloden Hotel & Spa on the A2 Bangor Road.  Our ‘make, take and wear’ jewellery workshops are very popular and offer a totally unique experience and are suitable for anyone 12 or over.  With views across Belfast Lough to the hills of Antrim beyond, you can relax and enjoy a well-earned refreshment as your jewellery creation is polishing. 

We have a beautiful cabinet of pre-made jewellery in our studio, so even if you don't want to make your own masterpiece, you may find something in there that you would like to purchase separately ie Dark Hedges or Crane necklace.

There are various options for jewellery making experiences depending on whether you would like to just make your jewellery or you would like a fully hosted experience.
