Wax Carving for jewelry can be used for one of a kind works or for developing a jewelry line for production.
This class will introduce basic wax carving techniques for creating small objects and jewelry using both hand tools and the flex shaft.
A wide range of sculptural shapes, surface texturing, and hollow forms will be explored, starting with the creation of a ring.
Basic knowledge of the casting process will be covered including types of molds made, how waxes are duplicated, and how they are cast into metal.
During the course, the student will have the opportunity to have professionally cast at least one piece in sterling silver, and learn how to bring the jewelry casting to the desired high polish or textured finish.
