Jewelry Lost Wax Casting Process

Jewelry Lost Wax Casting Design Process

The jewelry lost wax casting design process begins as a pure thought process in relation to design concept, beauty, durability and fine craftsmanship. This thought process prior to the jewelry lost wax casting design creation as a wax sculpture also entails such considerations as fine jewelry weight distribution relative to comfort, jewelry design movement and unrestricted flow of the molten metal during the jewelry lost wax casting process. The placement and method of gemstone or diamond setting incorporated into the finished jewelry design is also considered and calculated into the overall jewelry wax casting art design concept.

The fine jewelry design concept is then artfully hand carved and sculpted using special jeweler's wax and small intricate carving tools. This step of the jewelry lost wax casting process is essential to the creation of a truly unique and tastefully artistic piece of fine jewelry art sculpture and can take many hours of very fine carving and shaping to create the perfect jewelry lost wax casting design form.

The sleek,simple and elegant fine jewelry art wax carving is then placed in a metal cylinder which is encased with a water soluble plaster called investment. The investment liquid solidifies and the wax fine jewelry art design is then placed in a kiln. The kiln goes through a high to low temperature cycle lasting several hours. At the end of the kiln's burn out cycle the jewelry wax sculpture has melted out leaving a well defined hollow "fossil" in the plaster.

The hollow impression replicates and replaces the shape and form of the three dimensional jewelry wax sculpture that was burnt out in the kiln, hence the term, jewelry lost wax casting.


The precious metal that is to become the fine jewelry art piece is melted by torch with tremendous heat. Using centrifugal force, the precious metal is flung into the hollow jewelry lost wax cast impression in the plaster mold. The process of preparing the metal and forcing the metal into the plaster mold is called lost wax casting. The remaining precious metal casting is allowed to solidify.

The lost wax fine jewelry art design casting of unique wearable art is now ready for your wearing pleasure and visual enlightment.
