Description:

Create a fab ‘one-of-a-kind’ piece of silver jewelry by casting silver in cuttlefish bone molds!

Cuttlebone has been used as a mold making and casting material for hundreds of years. It is an age old sustainable technique, where the soft layers of bone can be easily carved with a design of your choice. The mold can easily withstand high temperatures for molten silver, holding it’s form and shape until the piece is removed. Each mold can be used only once, hence your ‘one-of-a-kind’ jewelry!

This private online class takes 4-hours and conducted over 2 sessions, each 2 hours. You will learn everything from scratch - from the design, carving the mold in cuttlebone and finally casting & finishing three pieces of jewelry.

Upon booking, you will receive a delivery of the tool kit and required workshop materials. With live online instruction, the workshop will start with an introduction of materials and ways to play with the material to create your first casting. Under the guidance of the instructor, you will learn to make the carving and create the mold with cuttlefish bone.

Due to high temperature and safety tools required to melt the silver, the finished mold will be sent to the workshop to cast the jewelry piece. After the mold is set, the finished pieces will be couriered back to you.
