Sterling Silver first castings

Some of the pieces now availlable. Sterling silver chains from Cooksons, hand made ear wires, hand made mussel shells. All pieces with soldered sterling silver jump rings.

Experimenting with silver

Just finished cleaning up these guys, they need a Polish but wow, real silver mussels! Learnt a lot, think it’s all about the wax. Lost over half and the tiny ones didn’t do too well, better try another batch.


Thinking about sterling silver!

Trying to do some sterling silver casting, just the little mussels at the moment but will do some cockles, thats if it works OK. Soooo exciting!

A wonderful accident when trying to make something go green, its all blue, and such a lovely blue at that! The outside curve of the mussel is more green but the convex inside is just delightful, like the old butterfly wing Brooches of old.
