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.
