From Idea to Collection
The idea often starts on paper and is then sculptured in wax. Next step is the casting process which begins with a plaster model. The wax is then melted out and silver is replaced. After, the silver bead is cooled and removed from the cast.
The cleaning process begins, to make the bead ready for oxidization. The oxidation process is actually the natural tarnish process that air has on silver, just speeded up. The oxidized bead is then washed and polished in a tumbler. The silver prototype is now finished and a new bead is born.
