WAX CARVED JEWELLERY
Roxanna from The Style Union is coming in hot, with her tool kit in tow, to show you the ancient technique of Lost Wax Casting. Used for hundreds of years this technique truly takes on an art form of its own.
In this class, you will learn basic wax-smithing techniques to make an original sterling silver ring. We will work with hand tools and files to build and carve wax into your own unique piece of handmade jewellery. You will be creating an exact wax replica of your eventual finished sterling silver ring. There will be plenty of samples available to guide and inspire you in creating your very own design that you will cherish forever. Hello, Miss Silversmith of the Year!
Each individual creation will be cast in sterling silver, cleaned and polished by Roxanna and be available to pick up three weeks after at The Craft Parlour.
You'll get to cover:
- Introduction (how casting works) and types of wax
-Measuring and design
-Measuring your ring size
-Cutting and shaping
-Filing and shaping techniques
-Polishing, finishing and preparing to cast
