Virtual Ring Carving Class
Silver Works, ‘The Experience Creators’ brings to you their first-ever Virtual Class so that you can enjoy creating your own ring or charm from the comfort of your own home!
What will I learn
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… for an extra €60 for the ring, or €40 for the charm. If you know you want this you can choose the finished ring option below for €95 for the ring and €75 for the charm.
Duration of Course
The virtual class lasts 1 hour and costs only €35!
Our next class is being held on Thursday 25th March from 6-7pm
If you are interested sign up soon as there are only limited places!
Please note that we need a minimum of 6 bookings in order to hold this event. If the minimum booking amount is not fulfilled, the date of this event will be postponed and held at a later date, most likely a week or two later. Thank you for your understanding.

Why Silver Works?
We are a group of Jewellery Designers and Makers who love to share our craft and help you learn a new skill!
We only offer small classes (even online) of up to 10 people, so that you can ask questions and learn directly from our super friendly (super lovely) and highly experienced tutor!
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) – Sterling Silver Casting – €60 for the ring and €40 for the charm.
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! Please note we will return your finished ring to you within 3 – 4 weeks of us receiving your wax carving.

“Great Lockdown experience learning and working from home. Took me a while to shape the wax to my design but good fun trying it and my ring has turned out beautifully. Great conversation piece and I’m planning to make some nice presents”

“A novel and delightful way to explore and express your creativity in a lockdown. The kit is comprehensive and the tutorials are detailed and easily accessible online for whenever suits your timetable. Great support and fast responses to enquiries. I can’t wait to attend a class in-person to expand my skills. Highly recommended.”
