On Saturday 14 May I ran a sand casting workshop. This course is always popular and great fun. We really do 'get our hands dirty'! Everyone successfully cast several pieces, one piece - a seahorse was a stubborn one but we didn't give in and got it on the third attempt! Here are a few images, though as usual, I was too busy to capture very much from the early part of the day.
Two part sand mould ready to cast.
Opening the mould to remove the twig, and add air vents.
Sue cutting the sprues from her castings.
The working area, after we have made 3 or 4 moulds each!
At the bench cutting sprues, filing up the castings and soldering jump rings.
Removing a sprue.
Sue cast from a very old family locket, not causing any harm to the original. We were delighted how much detail was carried through to the casting.
An old key and a seahorse cast in silver by Nick.
Silver acorn cufflinks made by Sue.
Nick's silver bullet cufflinks.
I wish I had photographed the pieces Wendy made, unfortunately I didn't get chance. She made a lovely twig, some buttons and a key.

Sue makes rings to the size your select when ordering. If the ring does not fit, then she will re-size the ring free of charge (once only) providing:
Please do contact me before returning any ring for a re-size, it is so useful to have a discussion to help gauge how much adjustment is needed.

Sue will happily resize, refinish or repolish the ring at any time after the 14 days have expired, but at a cost based on the time needed to fulfil the work which Sue can quote before you return the ring.
If you are not sure of your ring size, please contact Sue. We can arrange your order and then post out a free ring sizer to you. You then simply call or email with the measurement.
