The Casting Process

 "We make a mould of the original article whether it be a wishbone, berry or nut, to produce a wax original. From there, we make a clay mould from the wax original. The wax original is then melted away in the oven. Molten bronze is then poured into the clay mould, filling in all of the cavities. This ensures that all of the detailing from the original article remains. Once the metal has cooled and solidified, the clay moulds are broken off leaving a beautiful bronze Pendant. It is then plated in gold/rose gold or silver and assembled to it's chain, ring or earrings.This process is repeated for each individual piece of jewellery, making them a one off and totally unique."
