Jewelry casting is a process of making jewelry pieces that involves the pouring of liquid metal alloy into a mold. It is usually referred to as lost-wax casting because the casting mold is created using a wax model that is melted away to leave a hollow chamber in the middle of the mold. The technique has been used for thousands of years. Crunchy Diva Designs has used the method to make our exclusive Organic Collection of unique and unusual pendants found in nature.
