LOVE CARVE Fine Jewelry Ring Making Experience

$ 310.00 USD



A Ring Carving Workshop with Cat McCadden

Hello, carvers,


Friendship is like an ocean; neither has an end.

Carve a ring that echoes the flow of love and friendship you've experienced. Like the constant flow of water carves a path through the land, the way those dear to us leave their unique mark on our lives. So many types of love transcend romance: sibling love, pet love, teammate love, and friend love. LOVE IS LOVE.

Join us

Carve a piece of wax and enjoy a fine jewelry-making experience amongst community commemorating the universal, instinctive, and mysterious feeling of love. 

Cat is inspired by liminal beauty, where the city meets the sea. You are encouraged to bring an oceanic or friendship-inspired found object for the event. We'll find inspiration in its line, form, texture, and silhouette. 



Many gemstones bring harmony and strength to all facets of love. Using your favorite stones can bring about both symbolic and literal transformation.

Rose Quartz

Known as a "fierce defender of the heart," rose quartz is known to raise the wearer's vibration, bringing you closer to an all-embodying feeling of love.


The turquoise blue of amazonite connects voice to heart, bringing us deep into our truest selves while channeling energy throughout the body.

Yellow Topaz

A bright yellow topaz acts as a guide of radiant light for those darker days, ushering in hospitality and warmth.


The illustrious olive green peridot frees the mind of envious thoughts while serving as a trusted aid to friendship.

Fine Metals Forever

We cast in silver, solid gold, rose gold, and platinum; specific metals are known to harness and solidify your intentions.

Gold’s extraordinary malleability and resistance to tarnishing and corrosion have forever set it apart as magical. Gold associated with purity and warmth 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 connections.

Each has a superpower. Which speaks to you?

Book a special seat with The Wax On Workshop's LOVE CARVE for an artistic and hands-on ring-making experience. The 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 own bespoke fine jewelry-making journey. 

Cat will bring her artistic and professional expertise to complete your ring in her studio after your in-person carving session. 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 and 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.

Customized requests for group carves are welcomed!
