Lost Wax Casting: North Shore Jewelry
Imagine walking the cobbled beaches of Lake Superior, picking up a unique rock and transforming it into a piece of jewelry. Herein lies the beauty of wax modeled sculptural jewelry. In this course you’ll use surface-found materials such as beach stones, wood and twigs and use them to carve a finished design. Each piece is transformed into a stunning piece of silver jewelry through techniques of wax modeling. You’ll model found objects which were created by generations of geological processes into a lifetime keepsake. The course takes place in Stephan's harborside jewelsmith shop.
