An intimate class for beginners! Learn everything from how lost wax carving works to creating your very own piece of jewellery. Perfect for those looking to get started with jewellery making or for those looking to create a personal wedding band for their partner!

 

You will learn:

  • What lost wax casting is
  • Basic designing for wax carving  
  • The different types of wax and their unique properties/uses
  • Basic wax carving tools and their uses
  • Wax carving methods plus some of my favourite tricks
  • How to create a piece of jewellery (a silver ring with or without a stone - your choice. I'll be showing you a variety of ring making methods and will provide some stones for you to play with and use within your design)

 

    You will receive:

    • Your finished model cast in sterling silver (this will be done after the class), it will be professionally finished and polished by me within my studio and sent to you in the post 
    • A reading list of my favourite go to books, online resources and a recommended tool list with industry suppliers to get your started at home.

      CHAIN LENGTH GUIDE

      All of our necklaces have a suggested length in the listing, however some products also offer a length customisation option.
      If you would like a custom length, take a look at our length table and illustration to get a feel of how the chain will sit on the figure before ordering (the stand is proportionate to a UK size 10).
      Products that do not offer a custom length, due to the intricacy of the design, are one size fits all and have an additional chain extender fitted.
      Products that offer a standard length or custom length do not have chain extenders fitted.
      Chain extenders can be purchased separately HERE if you’re not ready to commit to one length.
