Design & Make your very own jewelry

Join me in the following, exciting classes where we will relax, have fun and unleash our creativity by designing and making jewelry using one of the most ancient techniques: the Lost Wax technique.

Where: A casual and relaxing home studio in Sammamish, 98075 WA

Class Size: Up to 5 people.

 

The following classes are available for November & December:

Design & Make your own Ring

When: Nov 9 2018, 17:00 – 20:00 (3 hours)

Cost: 130$

Materials: All the materials (waxes and tools) for the class will be provided. The cost of the class also includes one (1)  casted Sterling Silver ring (up to 0.5 dwt/pennyweight). If you wish to cast extra 3D wax models you can do that for an additional 25$ per piece up to 0.5 dwt/pennyweight. Wax models will be weighted with an electronic scale at the end of the class.

During the class, we will explore the work of different jewelry artists, you will be introduced on how to make a ring with a round or square band and then learn how to add texture and solder organic elements around the band. You will have enough time to explore the wax and experiment with it by creating different designs. At the end you can select your best design to be send to a US Casting House to be casted in Sterling Silver.

The jewelry will then be polished and finished by me (we will agree during the workshop on the finishing details) and then posted to you. If you want you can join the class on Dec 14th and  learn how to polish and finish your jewelry (see below for more info).

Prerequisites: None
