This is an intermediate level wax carving class which will explore in depth model making techniques to create mirroring pieces. Students will create a pair of earrings of their own design set with either a cabochon or rough gemstone.  Various carving techniques will be covered, delving deeper into design transfer, layout, carving, and build-up. Both bezel and prong styles will be addressed as well as problem solving for uniquely cut and rough gemstones.  Students should provide either a round or oval shape gemstone not less than 10 mm in any direction, or can purchase from the tutors collection. Wax will be provided.

Prior wax carving experience highly recommended.
