Soft Wax Bezel Wax Carving Class

Learn how to create a bezel for a cabochon using soft carving wax to be cast into metal in this intermediate level class. I'll go over how to select your wax, trace the stone shape, measure and cut your bezel. I'll demonstrate how to attach the pieces together using a heat source with the additive technique. I will also demonstrate some design modifications such as a patterned bezel wire and adding decorative elements. Learn how to add gemstones to your work with this basic technique.
