CARVE YOUR OWN RING or
WEDDING BAND WORKSHOP
You, possibly your group or your partner (if these are wedding bands) will arrive at my studio in Red Hook, Brooklyn where I will guide you through the steps of carving your own rings. First we will discuss what you are looking to make and make our plan. Then using wax files, wolf wax carving tools, wax saw blades, sand paper and other jeweler's tools, we will carve your rings out of wax. Couples that are making wedding bands may also choose to carve each other's rings.
Once the rings are carved and finished, I will have them casted by an expert caster in Manhattan's diamond district on 47th street in the precious metal of your choice.
Finally once the ring has been casted I will expertly polish your ring using sanding and fine polishing and get them to you! You can also choose to have stones added or engravings which we would discuss in the beginning when we are making our plan for the ring!
Rings are usually finished in about 2-3 weeks but if we add additional stones or elements can take up to 4-5 weeks which we will discuss and figure out your needs.
This class is so fun as you get to learn a new skill, maybe start your own journey in jewelry and/or make your own wedding band or ring that you can wear for years to come.
