Make your own silver ring with the Nabataean Ladies in Wadi Musa|Petra

My two nieces were visiting Jordan during their spring holiday. And that happened to be in between their birthdays. So I wanted to get them a special gift. And I thought of the Nabataean Ladies Cooperative. Their workshop annex silver shop is just a short walk from the B&B. As a result I took them there to make their own birthday present. A silver ring!

First they melted the little silver and copper grains. Fawziya was there to explain how to do this. Then they pressed the silver into a thin cable. That is the base of the ring. Then it’s time to be precise, bend the silver to a circle and get the right size for your ring before you cut it.

The next step is to make two even circles and close them. Followed by the sanding and polishing.

And the result; for each of them a beautiful ring to memorialise their visit to Petra, Jordan! And off course their birthdays!
