So I was asked by my jewelry teacher to compete in the Skills Manitoba Competition under the category job skill demonstration. I agreed and we decided that we would show a demonstration of how to make a lost wax casted ring. We decided to make a simple band ring showing the different steps, but I also wanted to show a more complex design that can easily be made. I decided to make a giraffe ring. I had made this ring once before and gave it to a friend, but she had lost it and I had been asked by a few people to remake it, so I decided to do so.
Here's the step by step instructions of what I had done.
And there we have the giraffe wax ring! All I have left to do is drill out the eye sockets, spruce up the piece, invest and cast, then all the finishing work in metal. I'll be posting another post for the end results of the ring.
