Awesome custom-carved lost wax castings!

Early 2020 Grade 12 student B.G. really took to casting, and used his artistic skills to custom-carve his own sterling silver skull ring (in-process and completed photos here). We decided to finish off his ring with a liver-of-sulfur patina to give it a darker sheen, and it turned out SO good!

Also pictured is a second casting hand-carved by B.G. (heart inside a triangle). Excellent work, and I hope post-grad life is treating you well!

Custom Lost Wax Casting

This project was lovingly hand-carved and shaped by A.K., a top student in Jewelry 10 in Fall 2019! Cast out of sterling silver, this project featured geometric angles created with a file and sandpaper, as well as a carved centre detail. Excellent work, A.K.!

all in the family…

J.L. in Grade 12 re-cast these beautiful matching gold pendants from a family heirloom: one for herself, her sister, and her mom. A great example of how significant & timeless jewelry-making can be. Great work, and good luck on your welding ACE-IT program, J.L.!
