This wonderful 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 cats are detailed both front and back,
and designed as a wearable sculpture. 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 fantasy jewelry
collection, or a great gift for someone special.
