Happy Mother's Day! Celebrate by creating jewelry together. 

There are so many big moments: your milestone birthday, a golden (retriever) anniversary, a hard-earned graduation, engagements, and weddings are remembered with the jewelry we wore, long after the party's over. 

Find your inspiration in celebrating...something!

Together with Cat, you will discuss your idea, a gemstone, an older piece of family jewelry… and these factors will guide the shape, form, and dimension we will carve into jewelers wax. 

We’ll create a piece of jewelry that’s worthy of constant wearing and passing on–a unique emblem of our special occasion.


We wish to create an environment that’s loving and fosters sentimentality for all your senses.

Your experience amenities include

  • Ginger Beer and Sparkling Water
  • Vintage Jewelry To Peruse 
  • Lavender Sprig Candle
  • GRACE GOW giveaway bag with Polishing cloth + gift.


This wax carving workshop is a place where your creativity comes alive. The Wax On Workshop - or WOW for short - is a relaxed two-hour session of sketching, carving, and chatting that results in your own ring, pendant or earring design created in jewelers wax.

 At the end of your workshop, you'll give the wax to Cat; she'll cast the ring and then professionally finish it to your matte or shiny specifications. Then, four to six weeks later, you'll receive your custom sterling silver creation delivered to your door.

 Customized requests for group carves are welcomed!


  • You carve your dream silver ring, pendant or earrings from simple jewelry wax.
