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.
