Wear and enjoy your final necklace, forever!

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 email@example.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.
