Just this week, I finished taking a three-week wax carving class at the Bloomfield School. These are two new rings that I made, by first carving them in wax and then casting them into sterling silver. What a fun medium to work with! I love the malleability of wax. As you can see, one of my rings is very precise in shape and texture. The other one, on the contrary, is left very raw and organic.
I highly recommend the Bloomfield School. They offer multi-week and same-day classes across a number of disciplines, from wax to soldering to patinas and even stamping. The instructors, Kerrie and Melissa, are tons of fun (and infinitely patient!). Check out their own jewelry sites here!
