Choose either the Lost Wax Cast Inspirational Bracelet or Memory Ring as your project


Create your own custom Inspirational Link Style Bracelet. You’ll be creating your bracelets from cutting your own wax links (total of 6), adding words (max 7 characters) and decorating them however you choose with stamps Melissa has available. You will also be using a mini torch to roll or flash the edges and gating the waxes to prepare for the casting process. All of the bracelet links will be soldered by Melissa so that you will not have to worry about losing your bracelet. The only prep that needs done by you is deciding what words touch you or bring you happiness, joy and peace.
