Do you want to Become a Jeweler and Create your Own Rings, Pendants, Earrings and Bracelets?
Then you’ll need to Learn Wax Carving!
Wax Carving is how ALL Custom Designed Pieces are made. They all Begin with a Simple Block of Wax, and are Molded and Carved into all the Pieces you see in Jewelry Stores Today.
We do a Ton of Custom Designing in the Shop, making One-of-a-Kind Pieces that People Love and Cherish.
We generally Start out with a Rough Drawing or Sketch of the item the Customer Wants, then the Wax Carver (Yes we have Someone who does nothing but Carve Waxes) Creates the item out of Wax.
They Bring the Design to Life!
Take a Peek at some Examples of Wax Carvings and the Finished Products below…
Once these Pieces have been Carved, Refined, and Approved by the Client, they get Set on a Spru and Cast in a Solution (like Plaster of Paris) that Keeps the Shape of the Carved Wax after the Wax has been Burnt out and Melted.
Once the Wax is Dissolved, it Leaves Behind a Hollow Void in the Shape of the Design. All that’s left is to Melt the Metal of your Choice (Gold, Silver, Platinum) and Pour it into the Mold to make your Piece.

It’s a Fascinating Process that’s Very, Very Cool!
This Type of Craft and Talent isn’t Learned Overnight though. It takes Years of Practice and a Lifetime to Master. Often the Amateur or Apprentice will Start with Carving a Simple Ring, like a Plain Smooth Band.
After they Master Carving and Smoothing out a Band, they’ll move into Carving Simple Objects, Patterns and Designs.
Intricate Styles will Follow, but it does take a while to get the Flow of Carving from a Block and Uncovering a 3D Image from Wax.
It’s Endless what you can Create
It’s Imagination Meets Functionality.
The Rest is up to YOU!
