Lost-wax casting is an ancient jewelry technique, dating from at least 6,000 years ago and still used in jewelry creation and fine art. The precision and accuracy of the final result have made lost-wax casting the preferred creation method in fine jewelry.
Who We Are
The form to be created is first sculpted from wax.
Then it is fixed inside a flask and immersed in liquid plaster.
Once the plaster has set, the flask is placed inside a hot oven. The wax melts and runs out, leaving a hollow cavity in its place.
This cavity is then used as a mold for molten metal, to create an exact replica of the original wax form.
The jewelry piece is cleaned, filed and polished to perfection. Ready for the Mirror to be set.
