Lesson 3 | Wax Carving Class: Textured Statement Ring
Join me at my kitchen table to learn all about wax carving! In this session I’ll be making a textured statement ring. Learn beyond a simple band to make a funky, chunky statement ring that tapers down to a thinner ring. We will go over how to measure, cut and find a centerline in your piece to work evenly. Learn how to taper a ring and I’ll demonstrate a few different textures for your ring project, or other future projects.You can also purchase carving wax here (while supplies last)
Join me at my kitchen table to learn the basics of how to carve a ring in wax to get cast into metal. I'll go over the basic hand tools, how to use each one and how to measure, cut, size and carve a ring. I do this all at my kitchen table with just a few tools, and so can you! You'll receive a link to watch my 25 minute tutorial, a list of suggested tools and where to purchase and resources for where to get your piece cast.

How many times will I be able to watch the tutorial? As many as you'd like! The class is yours forever.
Do I need to take the classes in order of their lessons? 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? No, this is for absolute beginners or can be a great refresher for those with some experience.
What tools are needed for the class? 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 myfree videowhich goes over tools, materials and the process.
