Direct Stone Setting Into Wax
(Private Dates Available)
Please note this course is not for beginners.
In this 2 session course, we go over the rules and theory of directly setting stones into wax before casting and we also add in all our tips and shortcuts that we have learnt along the way.
This is an exciting course with lots and lots of practice that can just be fun or a breakthrough for many jewellers.
We supply all the wax, models and a starter pack of nano manmade stones that you can buy in the class if you choose to keep them and cast. With that and lots of help the rest of your time is for supervised exploration.
All of our classes are taught as though you will be working from home at a kitchen table so everything you learn you will be able to repeat at home. With that in mind it is essential that you have some experience of wax carving carving and casting - we do not teach from beginners for this course.
This class is practice only, anything you choose to cast will be taken in by you in your own time and be finished at home or in your studio.
If that sounds appealing book in and come along and have some fun.

Jewellery makers and hobbyists
We are a collective of designers and makers curated by Eran Naylor (owner and designer) creating and bringing to you beautiful and organic jewellery, bags and home wares. Our house label of jewellery and bags are made here in our studio. Our inspirations for our collections come from designs and patterns from the old Mesopotamian regions, India and South America, transferring the beauty of older times to bold, classic pieces that can be worn or used with ease today.
We also run a school of craft, where we invite exciting and innovative teachers to come in and teach classes so that you can learn new skills from them. These are run in one of our two beautiful spaces in and around our shop and studio.
