Get ready to dive into the wonderful world of jewellery wax carving with this exciting class on how to carve and build an organic claw cabochon statement ring in jewellers wax.

This intermediate live Zoom class offers a step-by-step demonstration on how to carve a flat-top signet-style ring and build organic-style claws to house a flat back cabochon stone on top. This one is a step above the signet ring class, and definitely creates a statement piece! Previous wax carving experience and handling is essential for this class, and a lot of patience helps!

Important: Classes are strictly hosted in English!
