What is wax carving and how does it work?
For centuries, Jewellery artisans have been sculpting their own Jewellery designs from wax!
We will send you your package by post before the virtual class and then we will send you the Zoom link to the virtual class date that you have chosen.
Once you have your package and start your virtual class, our incredible Tutor will teach you, using different techniques, how to carve your design into the piece of wax. The wax is smoother and much nicer to work with rather than silver, the buttery material of the wax allows you to create textures and designs that you can’t create with metal. The wax is more sculptural and organic and this is why this technique is often used within the industry.
Once you’re finished adding your design and texture, You can decide if you want it to be cast into Silver, finished and returned you yo for and extra €60. If you know you want this you can choose the finished ring option below for €96.
Return your wax carving to us and we will take your carving to professional casters to have it cast, (you can also opt for solid yellow, white or rose gold for an additional price)
Once your piece is ready, we will collect it from the Casters and one of our Industry Experts will polish your ring and clean it up so that it’s ready for you to wear!
Once it’s complete, it will be delivered by registered post to your chosen address!
