    In this Wax Carving Jewelry Workshop each creates its own personalised Dream Ring. You decide the size, the shape and you can add your initials, stamp a word, embellish it with granules, give it an organic look. Anything is possible! This workshop is fun and interesting for all, even if you have no experience in goldsmithing or jewelry design!

    In this 2,5 hour jewelry making workshop, you will be guided through the ancient old process of the lost wax technique. By carving and cutting wax, we create a master model. This model will be used in the casting process of jewelry making. You will be introduced to different techniques, including filing and shaping wax and using different tools. After the workshop, your unique design will be cast in recycled silver. Then your ring will be polished, and it is ready to be worn by you!

  • What is included in the Workshop?

    • materials for making your ring
    • use of all tools

  • Are you a jeweler or goldsmith?

    This Workshop is not ment for goldsmiths, silversmiths or jewellery designers who would like to learn the techniques of Wax Carving and Casting. If you like to learn professionally about all the techniques of Wax carving, where to cast, how it works, what tools you need and where to go for all this. Then the Wax Masterclass is for you.

    Wow you really get an inside look at the jewelry workshop! So nice to see for yourself what steps are needed before you have a piece of jewelry. Really special that you can wear your own design. Highly recommended for anyone who wants to do a relaxing and educational workshop with a friend or your mother.

    The time flew by! With super much pleasure and in supreme concentration, I made a silver signet ring in memory of my mother. I am really pleasantly surprised by the result. What a great ring it turned out to be! Daphne is an expert in her craft and can explain and guide very well. This workshop is highly recommended if you want to make a piece of jewelry for yourself or for someone else, even if you have no experience. Everything breathes craft and attention. With fine tea and delicious treats, and special conversations that arise naturally. Thank you Daphne!

    It was wonderful to do! And a very nice, relaxed atmosphere. A small group, which made it cozy and everyone got good tips and attention. Also in terms of length just right! Oh maybe I had to mention 1 thing. The most fun was to fiddle with the wax and all the tools.
