Wax carving is a really interesting and effective method of making silver jewellery. The process involves carving a piece of wax into the design of your choice. The wax is sent to a professional caster and comes back as a silver copy of the shape you carved, ready for you to sand and polish. Very intricate pieces can easily and quickly be made using this technique and you can use this technique at home with minimal tools.
During this beginner's online course, you will learn how to carve wax into the shape of your desired piece and how to finish the cast silver. You will ring during this course using this technique. Once your design is carved in wax you can choose to send it to your local casters to be cast in the metal of your choice which can be silver, gold or bronze.
