Class overview image

Want to make a ring with a little movement? A ring with 2 (or more!) sides to wear face up so you can change it whenever the mood strikes and you pretty much have 2 completely different rings in one? Yes please! This class is perfect if you like variety. You learn how to make a ring with a central part that can swivel. The best part? Swivels can take place in different ways and different places on the ring: between posts or inside a frame, horizontally or vertically over the finger, or even higher up off the finger! This class doesn’t cover what to carve on your swivel pieces! I’m sure you have enough ideas of how you want to engrave, texture, carve and set stones in these surfaces!

Hi I’m Sandy. I learned jewellery making, including wax carving, at the school of jewellery in Dublin. After finishing my course, I taught at the school for a year and I also taught a wax carving workshop at Lucy Walker Jewellery in Kuala Lumpur. After learning all the basics of wax carving, I practiced and experimented A LOT. Something didn’t work out the first time I tried it? No problem, just try again (and again and again…) until it does work! Practice really is the only way to get better at something :) I made this class to help you in your wax carving journey. It’s made with love (and some exasperated sighs and curses when things don’t go like I want them to). I love wax carving and I’m excited to teach you!
