Jana insists on doing all our wax carving jobs herself as it is one of her favourite jewellery making techniques.
Carving wax is ideal for creating almost anything that would be difficult to construct from sheet or wire. It is capable of being highly detailed, polished or textured. Once a wax is finished, it gets cast in gold, sterling silver, platinum or palladium (see our Casting page) and finished with metalworking tools.
All our models are carved by hand rather than using CAD/CAM (Computer Aided Design/ Computer Aided Manufacture) technology because we really enjoy the process and we think hand carving the wax gives the finished piece more charm and personality.
