HEALING CARVE Fine Jewelry Ring Making Experience
JOIN THE HEALING CARVE
REGENERATION IN COMMUNITY
A Ring Carving Workshop with Cat McCadden
"Healing the world begins with healing yourself."
Eventually, every wave breaks. The healing path is best walked with support, whether from a broken heart or a sprained ankle. Carve your ring with a reason.
During this two-hour workshop, Cat will focus on enlivening the regenerative aspects of working with your hands. Together with the group, you will spend focused time in creative flow carving with the intention of healing your heart, your head... or anything that needs it. Time in community and away from a screen reminds the heart of a path forward.
Carve a piece of wax and work through the soul-level shifts of a breakup. Make a marker, an object, for the massive celebratory milestone of being well again. Together we will release the old and bring in the new.
Cat is inspired by where the city meets the sea. You are encouraged to bring inspiring found objects, something tangible that speaks toward healing and regeneration. We'll find inspiration in its line, form, texture, and silhouette.

Harnessing your favorite stones calls forth both symbolic and literal transformation. There are many gemstones celebrated for their unique strengths and healing powers.
Energizing and grounding with a radiant amber sheen. Valued for strength, it keeps the mind strong and attracts wealth and stability.
This yellow-gold stone purifies and aligns all facets of the being- spiritual, mental, and physical. Through flowing energy and glowing warmth, citrine aligns the energy needed to move forward.
A red clay earthiness is prominent in jasper, nurturing and providing support during stress.
Fine Metals Forever
We cast in silver, solid gold, rose gold, and platinum; specific metals are known to harness and solidify your intentions.
Gold is associated with purity and warmth and is known as a master healer, and was revered in ancient times for emulating the sun.
Similarly, rose gold is beloved by healers and seers for replenishing diminished energies while maintaining alignment.
Platinum, another strong metal, strengthens energetic connections while alleviating depression and enhancing memory. Last but not least, silver stimulates glands and hormones while also enhancing psychic and intuitive relationships.
Each has a superpower- which speaks to you?
ABOUT THE HEALING CARVE + HOW IT WORKS
Book a special seat with The Wax On Workshop's HEALING CARVE for an artistic, hands-on ring-making experience. This carving party, led by Vashon Island-based jeweler Cat McCadden, is where design, inspiration, a few tools, and a dash of instruction combine to fuel your bespoke fine jewelry-making journey.
Cat will bring her artistic and professional expertise to complete your ring after your in-person carving session in her studio. All gemstone and fine metal customizations are available; please inquire.
In her Vashon Island workshop, the GRACE GOW jewelers will cast your wax into your chosen metal, source, set gemstones, polish your ring, and professionally finish it to your matte or shiny specifications.
Then, three to five weeks later, you'll receive your custom ring creation delivered to your door.
