On the blog

Do you want to carve some one of a kind rings with gemstones? Then the rosecut ring class is perfect for you! In the newest blog post, I cover some of the steps that are involved in making rings with rosecut stones.

4 rings in wax with gemstones. 1 Small ring in blue wax with a red stone, one pink stone is a square ring from blue wax. One green stone in a rounded turquoise wax ring and one big pink stone in a turquoise wax ring with a split shank

Behind the scenes

I’ve been experimenting with wax wire. Wire is a type of wax I don’t use often so I’m testing its limits and looking for its possibilities. So far so good!

With the classes

Another existing class highlight! If you’re not a fan of rosecut stones, but do like gemstone rings, the solitaire and fitted band class might be a better fit for you! In it you learn all about making rings for faceted stones and rings to be stacked along side it!

2 Ring stacks with a total of 6 rings. Left round solitaire ring from blue wax with a round fitted band on the bottom and a big sun sun shaped fitted band on top, both from turquoise wax. Right pear shaped solitaire ring from blue wax with a wishbone style fitted band on the bottom and a halfround shaped fitted band on top with small stones sprinkled over the surface, both rings from turquoise wax.

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.
