About Your Host

The August Axel Jewelry Studio is a creative workshop in Venice Beach, CA. The Studio and course offerings were designed to serve a range of skills and interests from talented tinkerers to advanced artists. Our goal is to provide solid and safe bench-instruction, combined with hands-on practice, so artists may operate safely, independently and successfully. COURSES: Beginning, Intermediate and Advanced Soldering. Bezel Setting. Tube Setting. Flush Setting. Prong Setting. Metalsmithing. Cold-Connections. Wire Wrapping. Knotting. Private or Group Lessons. And more. INSTRUCTORS: As Owner and Senior Instructor, Christy Sears brings a wealth of knowledge to the bench. With 15+ years of jewelry soldering and metal fabrication, endless patience and a healthy sense of humor, she creates a warm and welcoming learning environment. Not only does she believe in teaching "how", but "why" and this has made all of the difference to her students. All of the August Axel Jewelry Studio instructors create the same atmosphere, so students may reach their goals.

What we'll do

PRE-REQUISITE: Beginning Wax Carving for Casting or previous wax carving experience. NO EXCEPTIONS. You must know how to use wax carving tools and be comfortable using a jeweler’s saw and flex shaft. ........................................................................................................................................ Elevate your Beginning Wax Carving Skills through safe and solid wax carving techniques. Learn to sculpt three-dimensional forms into wax to create magnificent rings or pendants. We will use wax burs to add depth to your designs and remove weight from the wax (Which saves design headaches and money!) Your Instructor, Diana, works with each student closely, to ensure the success of every design. We were students once, too, which is why it’s important that we teach the “How”, “When” and “Why” of each jewelry technique. Our goal is to provide a depth of knowledge, so the skills are replicable in your own Studio. There is a Casting Fee, which is determined by the weight of your piece. Don't worry, we won't let you spend too much by creating a ring that weighs a ton! This is a two-session Class. The second session is usually two-weeks after the first and will be discussed in the first meeting. Plan accordingly, in advance. SAFETY REQUIREMENTS :: NO EXCEPTIONS - Closed-toed, low-heeled or no-heeled shoes - Comfortable “play-clothes”. No flowing sleeves or too much bulk - Long hair must be worn in a bun or ponytail - Protective eyewear will be provided and must be worn
