As many of you know, I am participating in The 100 Day Project where I will be carving wax every day for 100 days. While I have missed a few days, I am doing a good job of making it up on other days. I am excited to show you my progress at the 2 week mark.
Well, I have been working rather diligently at carving the blue wax into this new series of Tree Rings. I am finally getting the hang of it.
One major thing that I learned is that carving wax is much, much easier at the jewelry bench height on a bench pin. This is a very obvious thing, but I started the wax carving at home with limited tools and work station. I think from now on, for the most part much of my carving will be done at the shop. The carving below was done in an ergonomic way and the results are obvious to me, and the photo is better too. =)
Have you ever committed to a project like this? Tell me more about it below. Here is a little video of the process of wax carving to finished metal jewelry.
Nice to meet you! My name is Kris Goymerac, and I’m a UP resident, world traveler, and a self-proclaimed Yooper Ambassador. I don’t have many chances to spread my love of the UP, “the 906,” to other countries these days, so I feel very grateful that I’m able this summer to instead spread my love of Beth Millner Jewelry while exploring all of the secret little niches of the Hiawatha National Forest, and other UP places I haven’t gotten around to discovering yet.
Hello! My name is Ann Smart and I am so excited to be an ambassador for Beth Millner Jewelry throughout the summer of 2020! My first piece was the Fox on Starry Night ring, “Foxes are an age-old symbol of adaptability. Let this ring bring you patience in times of change, and help you to welcome new experiences into your life” The fox has always played a significant role in my life, and ironically my husband bought this ring for my birthday days before COVID-19 changed all our lives.
