CRAWLING CAT Ear Cuff Sterling Silver or Gold Hand Crafted
This unique jewelry created by Marty Magic is lost wax cast
in sterling silver, and personally sculpted by Marty in her mountain
studio. All of the designs are Marty's originals, and all the
processes are done by hand. Marty's designs are whimsical, encompassing
the realm of fantasy. The lost wax casting process involves creating
a model in wax which is then suspended in a metal flask, and `"investment"
is poured around it. (Investment is very much like plaster.) The
invested flask is then placed in a kiln and the wax model is slowly
melted out until only the negative cavity, the exact shape of
the original wax model, remains. Molten metal is then centrifugally
spun into this negative space and allowed to cool and solidify.
