Are you curious how to start jewelry production? We’ve got a great line up to help you get started!

Learning the steps to creating a successful jewelry production system can save you time and money. You can apply the skills learned in all of these classes and use the methods that work best for you. Wax carving is a great way to create the unique forms you are wanting to replicate. Carve it once and make multiples!

The next step, silicone mold making, can be done with a carved wax form, a 3D printed form, or from something you fabricated in metal. You can even use found objects in nature! You will learn how to use the wax injector to create multiples of your jewelry design.

Finally, learn to invest and cast your pieces and, voila! You’ve just created a whole line of jewelry to give to your friends and family as gifts this holiday season or you are now ready to start selling all your new pieces at the BARN Bazaar! Once you have completed the Lost Wax Casting Class, you will then be able to attend the Independent Casting sessions and continue the fun.

We hope to see you this fall in the jewelry studio! Karin Luvaas & Jody Lyle, Instructors, Jewelry and Fine Metals Studio.
