Diary of a Design – Lost Wax Casting Continued

Our sterling silver castings have finally arrived back.
They took a little longer than I thought they would… I wonder if this is the norm. Fist time I’ve had one done, so we’ll see…

I blogged about the blue wax and sculpting process here – Diary of a Design – Lost Wax Casting – and you got to see the ‘blue’ Goddess.

Now here she is in silver…

I had four of the forms cast.  Each one weighs in at 18 grams of silver (0.035 ounces) – so she is fairly weighty…. which also translates to expense.

I still have to finish the gals a little more.  Remove sprue marks, polish and drill holes for threading.  I’m also not sure how she’ll be presented.  I want to wear mine on a silver chain – I think her form is gorgeous and womanly.  Proud to be a female.

If you have any suggestions on how you think best to present her, please feel free to share.  I will eventually be posting her on Etsy, so stay tuned.
