Design & Make your own jewelry! This experience is how to make jewelry using the ancient technique of the lost wax, that even nowadays is the most accurate & reliable technique of reproducing complex shapes in silver with all the fine details of the original pattern. It is a combination of art & metallurgy. Before we start crafting there will be a short introduction on the technique, the tools used to form or carve the wax, & we'll explore together ideas for jewelry forms. We will relax, and have fun while creating beautiful 3D wax models. You will have enough time to explore the wax and experiment with it by creating different designs. At the end you can select your best designs to be send to a US Casting House in order to be casted in Sterling Silver. Once I receive them, back, I will polish them and finish them (we will agree together on the final design during the experience) and post them to your desirable address. Wear your own designed jewelry and impress your family and friends!
Hi, my name is Vicky. Originally, I studied computer science so I had to go in the corporate world to pursue a career. But my need for balance drove me to take free hand painting lessons and metalsmith classes, for almost 10 years in Athens, Greece where I grew up. When I moved with my family in Seattle I decided to escape from my corporate background & do what I loved most: art jewelry! What I say to my friends is that if I can be creative then everybody can, you just need the right environment, tools & good company in order to unleash your creativity! Vicky www.porpe-artifacts.com
