What is Lost Wax Casting?

FROM REBECCA CORDINGLEY

You will receive a pendant that is partly made using the lost wax casting process. The original pendant was made entirely by hand by Rebecca Cordingley but in order to keep costs down, a mould has been made. The cast pieces are nowhere near complete when we receive them so there is still a lot of work to be done - filing, grinding, sanding, soldering, making the chain, polishing, cleaning, oxidising etc...

LOST WAX CASTING

Lost wax casting is an ancient metalsmithing technique. It is used to create duplicates of pieces, including shapes that cannot easily be made using traditional fabrication techniques.

The jeweller creates a wax model of the piece (in this case a pendant) and sends it off to the casting business. A plaster mould of the wax model is made and then filled with molten metal (sterling silver, gold, bronze etc) and allowed to cool. The jeweller then files down this master and cleans it up before returning it to the casting business to have a permanent mould made. This mould can be used to have further wax model copies made and more metal pieces cast.
