You can take your wax with you or for a small fee we will cast it in bronze and finish it for you. You can also sign up for a special 1/2 day class the next weekend and we will cast it in sterling silver and teach you how to finish it! Wax carving will be offered during the Polish Festival during our regular business hours of Saturday 11am-7pm, and Sunday 12pm-6pm.

For anyone that has taken a class at Jewel Envy and has just a little more work to do to reach perfection this day is for you! The annual class amnesty day is a free day where you can sign up for a 1-3 hour period of bench time to finish or re-finish a project you started. An instructor will be on hand to help you. This is perfect if you missed a class during your session, had to leave early, or were just so ambitious in project design there were not enough hours in the class to complete your work of art. This is not a day to start new projects but to finish old ones you worked on at Jewel Envy during one of our classes.2013-07-21
