Casting silver with stone and gem inclusions

When casting silver into a delft clay mould you have to be open to all manner of success; opening the mould is always a breath-holding moment!

There wasn’t much time for taking photos this week – but the Tuesday highlight goes to Lynn, who successfully cast a silver ring with a quartz inclusion

As you might imagine there was a chorus of delight when she opened the mould. There’s quite some cleaning up to do on this one, but the final result will be worth it
