Learn to carve, curve, hollow, texture, and sculpt using different types of wax to create rings, pendants and charms. Carving wax is a wonderful medium to work for creating jewelry. Rich textural surfaces and fluid, carving shapes can be created in wax material and then cast into a variety of precious metals to create a unique piece of jewelry. Wax models may be sent to a professional caster during the week and finished in the classroom to see the process through from start to completion.
Sakurako Shimizu is known for her conceptual jewelry. Her foray into wax medium for jewelry has produced equally exceptional results - and LILOVEVE STUDIO is excited to be able to offer this upcoming Wax Class under her instruction.
