Wax carving, step by step / Engagement ring commission. Swipe to go back in time to the rough bloc of wax and the drawings of the ring. This unique model will be cast in platinum and set with diamonds and sapphires...
Have you ever wondered how you could build a wax injector that was both inexpensive and worked properly too?
Here's a design that I created for those on a budget that works like a dream.
The main components consist of 1) a $10 crock pot from the department store like Target or Walmart. The two temp model is best. 2) also needed is a metal meat injector which is sold at Target for about $14. Just cut off the tubing part of the tip and add a rubber cone washer from the plumbing Dept of a hardware store. This rubber tip is really important because it seals against the mold and keeps all pressure shooting in instead of everywhere else. 3) I also recommend a grilling thermometer which costs about $6. Walmart carries one with a rubber cover that is red and matches the Crock-Pot.
There are other parts that can be added as well and for full directions on how to build them just go to my website at www.diyjewelrycasting.com and look under tutorials.

Finished up these two sea turtle keychains for a customer. Also just got an order for a pair of sea turtle cufflinks. Funny how certain designs seem to sell around the same time even though from different customers on different unrelated shops.👍😆 #seaturtle#seaturtlejewelry#seaturtlekeychain

Day 20 #marchmeetthemaker is "design process" It starts with a random "what if" brainwave and then I do some doodles/ sketches and then I move into wax. Luckily the sketches are just for me so that don't have to be very accurate, just inspiring! 😁 Ideas can pop into my head at any moment so I'm never very far from a pen and paper.✏️✍️ When I move into carving the wax I kind of let it tell me what to do and go with it...sometimes it's what I planned, other times it's a happy accident! But if I like it it becomes silver, and if I don't I just start again 🙊 #drawingaday#oodlesofdoodles#sketchbook#creativeprocess
All finished with a big casting of over 80 pieces.😳 I had not done a casting since Christmas time depleted a lot of my stock. Now back to creating orders and starting on carving some new designs! 🤗🤗 #silvercastings
An elephant and Tanzanite ring! This piece started life as a chunk of jewellery wax, which was then handcarved into the piece, and thereafter moulded and cast in silver. I added the AAA quality Tanzanite for visual interest.
