HOW IT'S MADE
The bronze Pistachio Nut was made from a real nut. We make a mould of the Pistachio 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 Pistachio Nut remains. Once the metal has cooled and solidified, the clay moulds are broken off leaving a beautiful Pistachio Nut Pendant. It is then plated in silvers or golds and assembled to their chain. This process is repeated for each Pistachio Nut. Each piece is completely unique. Made in London, England.
