Silver Jewellery Making - "Lost Wax Method"
During this course you will use everyday tools to make easy and inexpensive jewellery in a style of your choice.
Learn how to create "production" jewellery pieces. You will carve a ring pattern into wax, which will then be created into a mould from which pieces can be produced in bronze, silver or sterling silver.
The first three sessions will be spent carving out your wax patterns, the wax pattern is then sent away for moulding, and the final session is spent sanding and polishing the finished product.
