Join me in my studio to learn how to carve aÂ signet ring to get cast into metal. A signet ring is a really classic design and you'll learn tons of wax carving skills that you can apply to many other projects. I'll go over how to cut out a piece of wax for your ring, put in center lines and how to taper your band. I'll also demonstrate how to transfer a design and carve details into your ring. I do this all in my studio with just a few tools, and so can you! You'll receive a link to watch the tutorial, a list of suggested tools and where to purchase and resources for where to get your piece cast. You can also purchase carving wax here (while supplies last).Â
Check out myÂfree videoÂ talking about lost wax casting and the tools and materials that are involved in wax carving.
How many times will I be able to watch the tutorial?Â As many as you'd like! The class is yours forever.
Do I need to take the classes in order of their lessons?Â Definitely not! You can watch the projects you feel most interested in, or watch them in order. Each lesson increases in difficulty slightly as I focus on laying the foundations and building skills and techniques on top of that.
Do I need any jewelry making experience for this?Â No, this is for absolute beginners or can be a great refresher for those with some experience.
What tools are needed for the class?Â I try to keep the classes as basic as possible and use as little tools as possible, while also showing a bunch of different options. I'm teaching these classes at my kitchen table, so you can do it too! I recommend watching myÂfree videoÂwhich goes over tools, materials and the process.Â
