Ring Making from Wax to Metal

, Co-founder/ Instructor

We’ll take you through the step-by-step process of planning, carving and finishing a ring of your own design. The first two sessions will emphasize the designing and making of the ring in wax. In the final class you will have your ring in metal and will learn the steps of refinement to complete the piece into wearable jewelry. As always, you’ll leave the class with resource information that will enable you to make future rings galore.

The course fee includes all materials except the cost of casting which will be on a ring-by-ring basis. If you’ve ever wanted to try your hand at jewelry making, this is an excellent beginner’s course. Wax carving is a very important facet of the jewelry craft that enables you to create completed pieces without an elaborate set-up. You can do this. Start dreaming up ideas and if you intend to make a gift, don’t forget their ring size!

Class is taught by Melissa J Tyson and Kerrie Yeung in their jewelry studio.

Melissa J Tyson

Co-founder/ Instructor

Melissa J Tyson likes to figure out exactly how things work, which leads her to investigate the chemistry, history, and possibilities of different materials. She’s excited to share this in-depth knowledge with The Bloomfield School community. When making jewelry, Melissa’s process tends towards the loud and messy, with more than one piece coming to life at all times. When not making jewelry, she works on personal projects ranging from the very-public to the semi-covert, some of which you could take part in – just ask. Melissa studied Jewelry and Metalsmithing, and as many other things as possible, at the Rhode Island School of Design. She also spent some time in Germany at the Pforzheim University School of Design.
