Crafting Your Own Jewelry with Silver Casting Techniques


Silver casting is an intricate part of our jewelry design. By meticulously shaping molten silver, which has been skillfully poured into carefully crafted molds, we create unique and personalized pieces. Our jewelers employ a variety of techniques including lost wax casting, the meticulous casting process that allows for capturing even the finest details in a wax model before it’s transformed into sterling silver splendor.


Distinguishing Lost Wax from Die Casting Techniques


Exploring the primary distinctions between lost wax and die casting methodologies, it’s evident that the choice of mold material stands out as a fundamental difference. Metal molds, which are durable and reused multiple times, are synonymous with die casting. On the other hand, lost wax casting is characterized by its use of a two-time only plaster or ceramic shell mold. Additionally, in the process of die casting, one finds that molten metal is injected into the mold cavity under exceedingly high pressure.3


Exploring Waxes for Precision Casting Techniques


For the intricate process of precision casting, microcrystalline wax is often favored due to its flexibility and minor tackiness. This wax is of a medium-soft nature, which contributes to its ease of manipulation. While paraffin wax can also be applied to this technique, its suitability for sculpting is limited compared to microcrystalline wax. Instead, it serves better to reinforce and solidify an existing wax sculpture. Additionally, several specialized waxes are available, each tailored for a unique function such as carving, sculpting, or filling in gaps. These particular waxes demand an understanding of their individual melting points for proper application.
