Wax carving is a fun jewellery making technique where you transform an unassuming piece of wax into a beautiful piece of jewellery! Learn to carve rings and 3-dimensional shapes. Classic jewellery pieces and bold statement jewellery. Anything is possible in wax! In the online classes, you learn how to carve your own piece of jewellery from wax.

On the blog

Should I make this in wax or metal? It’s a decision you have to make every single time you make something. In the newest blog post, you can read through the things to consider when you’re making that choice!

Behind the scenes

The weather has been terrible for filming so I’ve had to abandon the stones for a while. Luckily there’s a different class I can continue work on! If the weather stays like this I’m releasing this mystery class first!

Hi I'm Sandy!

I’m the CEO (Chief EVERYTHING Officer) here at Wax Carvers. I did my first jewellery making class in 2012 and haven’t looked back since. I didn’t fall in love with wax carving until 2018 though. Now wax carving is one of my main loves. And what do you do with love? You spread it around! That’s why I decided to teach wax carving! Make wax carving available to you so you can go ahead and fall in love with it yourself.

Do you want to know what tools you need to get started with wax carving? Do you want to know what wax color you should get? Do you want to know how you can set up a quick bench when you don’t have space for a dedicated one? All these topics and more are covered on the blog! A new post is published every other Tuesday. So you can keep coming back to learn more about wax carving.
