Class Description

Advance you wax working skills and familiarize yourself with wax carved stone settings through 2 classic ring projects. 

Project 1: Solitaire Ring – Redesign the quintessential center stone ring with your take on a single stone 4-prong setting.  

Project 2: Three-Stone Ring – Map out and design a ring to feature three stones side by side.  

This is a technique based class. Students will build wax settings around standard sizes of round faceted cubic zirconia to create ring models. After casting, cleaning, and polishing, students will practice prong setting. There will  be an option to have rings molded for reproduction or for future use with the gemstones of their choice. 

This class is designed for working in silver. Experience with wax carving and basic metalwork is required.

Metal casting for this class is outsourced and will be the responsibility of the student.

Class size 4 – 12 students. Proof of Covid-19 vaccination required. Masks are required to be worn for all studio coursework. 

Supplies for this class are available for purchase through our Tool Shop.
