Summary

For both new and more experienced jewelers, this thorough class in wax carving teaches a fun, effective, and easy way to create beautiful pieces!
Low maintenance and easy to do at home, wax carving requires just a handful of tools and inexpensive materials—and you can work on your kitchen table. Master jeweler and teacher Emilie Shapiro makes her hands-on techniques accessible to anyone, as she leads readers through the fundamentals, explaining how to make molds and multiple models with variations. With projects ranging from a very simple carved ring and tribal-inspired earrings to intermediate-level pieces like an Elephant Pendant, Snake Bangle, and Cuff Bracelet with a Bezel-Set Gemstone, this book is a must-have for every jeweler.
