WIP ~ Oval Sígnets
Here's a lil insight into wax carving for an oval signet ring :)
Every ring I create starts from a chunk of specialised jewellers wax. The wax comes in a variety of hardness and shapes. My preference is blue wax (softest), and I use the flat-top ring tube with a centre hole. Here are some work-in-progress images ~ I carved 3-5 of these in anticipation of patterns and carving designs that will give each ring their particular style....
