GURURITO is a hands-on jewelry workshop where visitors can encounter the joy of making things by working with their own hands around a hearth. Opened in June 2021, GURURURITO is a self-renovated clothing store in the Higashimachi shopping street in Sakuho-machi, Nagano Prefecture, at the foot of the North Yatsugatake Mountains. Wedding rings, silver rings, bangles, baby spoons, etc. can be handmade in 2 to 3 hours using authentic metal engraving techniques and taken home on the same day.
This is a workshop to make a handmade wedding ring (wedding band) by the couple, using K18 yellow gold or Pt950 platinum in a genuine forging process. You will be able to take home the ring you made on the day of the workshop.
This workshop is for making spoons by knocking out cut out silver plates. This workshop is also recommended for a baby spoon as a gift for a newborn baby or for a baby's first meal at the beginning of a new year.
I was happy because it was ideal for us to make each other's rings! We were immersed for 3 hours! It was so much fun! I loved the "snowflake" and "birch" patterns, which were very Yachiho-esque. The warmth, softness, and attention to detail of the three staff members was everywhere, making me feel hyper comfortable. Thank you for a wonderful experience. I will use it with care♡♡♡♡♡♡

K18YG LAYERED RING
I participated in a 2-hour workshop with my 1-year-old daughter to create a ring as a gift for her mom. We had a very enjoyable weekend as parent and child, with the child never getting bored and creating a masterpiece that she stuck to until the very end! This is a wonderful space where parents and children, couples, and friends can create memories and mementos together!
