Day 13-15 of the 100 Day Project

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.
Wax Carving by Beth Millner
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.
