Creative Jewelry Process

Lost wax casting is the preferred process by which Samara’s jewelry designs are created. First a sketch is drawn of the new piece of jewelry. Next, a wax model is carved from a block of wax using a flexible shaft and carving bits. The wax is changed into metal through a foundry-like process where the wax is embedded in plaster and burned out in a kiln, which leaves an empty cavity. A centrifical caster shoots melted metal into this cavity producing the new piece of gold, silver or platinum jewelry. The rough metal casting is then filed, sanded and buffed to produce a shiny finished surface. The setting of the diamonds and gemstones is the final step to complete the beautiful new piece of jewelry.
