FREEMAN WAX FEATURED JEWELER

How J&F Jewelry
Made a Splash in the New
Pirates of the Caribbean

Friday, May 26th, 2017.

Who is J&F Jewelry and how did they get involved in this project?

Jeffery Gold and Ann-Sofie Lakso (Fred) are the owners of J & F Jewelry. Together they design their jewelry and then Jeffery carves these designs in authentic Ferris wax by hand.  Over the years, Jeffery has used and even shaped various tools, in order to achieve the intricate detail that his jewelry requires.     

This trial and error process has evolved over the years.   The first piece of wax that Jeffery ever worked with was Ferris Blue wax carved with run of the mill dental tools.

 
Due to the somewhat guarded nature of jewelry design techniques and the limited availability of information on the Internet,  Jeffrey is self-taught with hours of work.  He is very methodical when creating pieces.    
 
This trial and error process has evolved over the years.  The first piece of wax that Jeffery’s ever worked with was Ferris Blue wax carved with run of the mill dental tools.   He now predominantly works with Ferris Purple wax and his own self-modified tools.  His current curiosity is the new Ferris Turquoise wax, which he just acquired this week.

"We were beyond excited to discover whom it was for and where she positioned them"

 
Fred is very close to Gloria Pasqua-Casny, an Academy Award nominated hairstylist, who asked to see what beads they had available.   She was designing a wig for a character in the movie and they were not provided any additional information.    In fact, they did not find out which character would display their work until Paul McCartney tweeted a post on Twitter.  "We were beyond excited to discover whom it was for and where she positioned them."
