Make Your Own Ring or Pendant Workshop with Dante Perozzi
November 5 @ 9:00 am - 12:30 pm
Time: 9 am to 12:30 pm
Cost: $130 CAE members / $145 non-members
During this intimate/relaxed gathering at the Center for the Arts Evergreen, Dante will teach you how to make your own ring or pendant! You will carve or sculpt your ring/pendant design out of wax during the 3.5 hour class. Your wax ring/pendant will then be cast into the metal of your choice by Dante using the traditional method of lost wax casting. This class will be taught through a combination of demonstrations and one-on-one instruction. All tools and materials will be provided so just show up on time with ideas and the magic will happen!
After the workshop, Dante takes your wax creations to be cast in brass (included) or you can opt to cast in gold or sterling silver for an added charge that will be determined based on your wax weight and paid at the end of the workshop. If you design a pendant, Dante will also attach a matching bail so that your pendant can be hung on a necklace chain (the chain is not included in the cost of the class). Following casting, your design will be cleaned up, polished, and made ready for pick up at CAE. In the end, you will be the proud maker/designer of a shiny timeless keepsake to wear or share with a loved one!
*Cost includes wax blanks, individualized instruction, one brass casting of your ring/pendant design, and a professional polish/finish added to your piece.
**You may opt to have your ring/pendant cast in sterling silver or gold instead of brass for an extra charge determined by the weight of your wax and the day’s metal market.
