Nahuatl - Jaguar
Hand Crafted Sterling Silver Charm & Chain

Nature Jewelry by Marty Magic (P-J)

Nahuatl, Marty's new Jaguar Charm is 1 3/8" long and 1/2" high without the bail. This sleek and powerful cat stands on its own and is completely three dimensional. Nahuatl was the language of the Aztecs and dialects are still used today among indigenous peoples. Embrace the mystery and magic of the Jaguar. Comes with an 18" sterling silver box chain.

This wonderful jewelry created by Marty Magic is lost wax cast in sterling silver, and personally sculpted by Marty. 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. After the metal piece has been broken free from the plaster, there is a long process required in finishing the piece. Sprues (the bump at the opening where the molten metal was poured into the mold) must be cut and ground and various polishing media are used to bring the piece to its final polished state. The piece is then oxidized, which darkens the recessed areas and shows off details, giving the piece more of a three-dimensional, sculptural appearance.

This would be a wonderful addition to your own silver jewelry collection, or a great gift for someone special.
