Group Size: 1 - 2
Over 10 people have attended this class


This class is for jewellery students and jewellers wishing to take their wax work to the next levels. You will need to have some previous experience of working with wax, casting and finish off to enrol in this class as it only covers wax modelling. If you have never worked with wax you will need to go onto our wax beginners course first.

Using pink wax you will cover techniques on how to build up wax to create a bezels for cabochon stones- with claws and a higher wall model for a push over setting as well as tapered bezels for faceted stones. 

Please note- this is not a gem setting class- you will need to know how to set your own gems later, learn to or find a gem setter. 

You will follow led examples so that everyone and the teacher makes the same model and then have time to create a models of your own designs.

You will leave with new techniques under your belt as well as instructions to repeat at home and a equipment/suppliers list.

Thank you for the wonderful opportunity to learn about wax building techniques. The small class size was nice to be able to receive lots of tips and tricks for creating wax jewellery.

Eran has an easy to follow teaching method with clear instructions. I learnt a lot - including where to buy some of the equipment cheaply and I am sure the skills I learnt will help me expand my wax crafting skills
