Wax modeling

 

The technique of sculpture and wax modeling is used in jewellery because it allows a freer expression and has fewer restrictions than metal.

Wax can be modeled more easily than metal and uses less time and material. Wax work allows us to see what the jewellery would look like as it is modeled to the exact size of the customised article of  jewellery. In this way, we can directly adjust the size and shape of the jewellery we manufacture to adapt it to the design and the size previously agreed with the customer.

The wax carving process is relatively straightforward to understand but more complicated to perform than it seems at first glance.

Once the design has been agreed with the customer,  wax is used to carve and shape that design until reaching the desired result.

This technique also allows us to create more organic shapes and thus give it a different style and with more movement than if we were doing it only in metal.

Another advantage of wax is that it is not necessary to make the whole piece of jewellery. We can limit ourselves to molding the most complex or organic shapes to join them subsequently to the work done in the metal and thus give life to the desired article of jewellery.
