Jewelry has always been connected to sculpture ever since antiquity. This seminar is an introduction to micro-sculpture and the process of lost wax, widely known as cast jewelry. Participants will learn several techniques of silversmithing on special hard wax. They will find out how a fairly soft material – wax – can be transformed into a three-dimensional object-jewel and then into metal.
The seminar’s curriculum includes the creation of the following objects: bead-ribbon developed in space, ring – form – with embossed decoration and modular openwork earrings with granulation. At the same time, tips and guidance will be provided for the finish of cast jewelry.
