The NI Silver VIP Jewellery Making and Relaxation combines jewellery making with the warmest of Northern Irish welcomes.
Guided by our goldsmith Ruth, each person will make their own piece of silver or copper jewellery, you can choose when booking, and then afterwards to get a 'behind the scenes' experience relaxing in our tranquil setting overlooking Belfast Lough and the Antrim Hills beyond.
During the workshop you will be introduced to basic metal-working techniques but with some more sophisticated skills/machinery in there as well. Your personal handmade jewellery creation can reflect the blue/green elements of Ards and North Down, from our rolling drumlins to our rippling loughs, encompassing our beautiful scenery.
Participants will have a go at numerous techniques including piercing, filing, soldering, hammering/texturing and polishing to create a lovely silver or copper ring, pendant, earrings or bangle.
The aim of these enhanced workshops is to showcase one of Ards and North Down’s hidden gems, tying in with the heritage of artisan craft and the natural landscapes.
Each guest on this "Craicing" experience will also receive their own recyclable gift bag containing a mini bottle of Prosecco, a selection of lovely local cheeses, chutney and crackers that they can take away too.
NI Silver’s Northern Irish hospitality will shine through as after our guests have make their jewellery they then sit outside overlooking Belfast Lough, wrapped up in locally made blankets, enjoying the fire pit, chatting with us over refreshments and getting to know each other.
We are well versed in the local filming industry as we have been 'extras' in a lot of recent productions and we have also travelled a lot, so will keep you entertained with plenty of craic (chat).
This experience is suitable for all types of visitors/participants including children accompanied by their parents.
NI Silver’s great location is easily accessible, located 10mins from Belfast in the Holywood Hills, perfect for a special occasion, tying in with award-winning local eateries to create a wonderful day out. Its closeness to other attractions including Culloden Hotel & Spa, Ulster Folk Museum, Helen’s Bay, Bangor Museum and Bangor Walled Garden, make it the perfect unique experience for your short breaks or day out.
From the moment you arrive, these are fabulously relaxed and fun experiences, come and spend some quality time with your family and friends on an experience you won't forget.
No experience is required to enjoy this fun day of jewellery making.
So why not gift this jewellery surprise to someone you love, or even treat yourself, as we will post you a gift certificate.
