FAQ 

 

Q: Is this beginner-friendly?
A: Yes! I will be showing you the easiest, and most fun way to hand-sculpt your own pendant in jeweller's wax (as part of the 'lost wax casting' approach to jewellery-making). This is a method I'm so passionate about – and what has been the foundation for some of Cadette's most coveted, artful designs. The video above shows designs created by our last workshop's attendees who were all beginners.

Q: Can my final piece be in silver or gold?
A: This workshop automatically includes the finished necklace in sterling silver. It can be completed in solid gold at an additional cost. Email allison@cadettejewelry.com for this option.

Q: Are we doing the whole 'lost wax casting' process during the workshop?
A: No, we'll only be doing the 'fun' part of the process ;) Which includes: cutting-out your desired shape / form in jeweller's wax, then gently molding it by hand, i.e. subtle curves and details. But I will still explain a brief overview on what the full process entails. At the end of the workshop, I'll collect everyone's wax prototypes and have them casted / converted into silver and polished to its final, wearable state. I'll add a chain to your pendants, and then mail it directly to you (approx. 4 weeks after the workshop). All of this is included in the registration price.

Diamonds & Gemstones

MOISSANITE

Moissanite is a laboratory-made diamond simulant composed of silicon carbide. It is a popular diamond alternative for its budget-friendly pricing, scintillating characteristics and life-long quality that is comparable to a diamond.

We only use the highest quality (VS+) and colour (DEF) Lab Diamonds and Moissanite. If you’d like to select a specific stone,
email us.

LAB GROWN

Lab Grown diamonds or gemstones are created in a laboratory. A coveted choice due to their more accessible price bracket while being chemically, physically and optically identical to their natural counterparts, with the same hardness, brilliance, and fire.

We only use the highest quality (VS+) and colour (DEF) Lab Diamonds and Moissanite. If you’d like to select a specific stone, email us.

NATURAL

Natural diamonds or gemstones are mined from the Earth. They originate as crystallized structures that form beneath the Earth’s surface over millennia, and emerge through various events like volcanic eruptions and mining extractions.

For our select pieces with a natural diamond or gemstone, we provide as much detail as possible on cut, colour and clarity. If you’d like to select a specific stone, email us.
