Sandcasting is a centuries-old technique that adds texture and character to jewelry pieces.
In this blog post, we'll explore the fascinating process of sandcasting and how it brings unique charm to our handmade jewelry, including the innovative method of casting gemstones directly into the metal.

Understanding Sandcasting
Sandcasting involves creating molds using compacted sand, into which molten metal is poured to create the desired shape. The texture and finish of the final piece depend on the quality of the sand and the intricacy of the mold.

In our workshop, we use sandcasting to create organic, nature-inspired textures on our jewelry pieces.
What makes our approach unique is the inclusion of gemstones directly into the casting process. This innovative technique allows us to set gemstones naturally and rough within the metal, creating a distinctive and raw aesthetic.
However, this method is only possible with specific stones such as diamonds, rubies, sapphires, zirconia, and lava stone, which can withstand the heat of the casting process without damage.

The Beauty of Gemstone Integration
Integrating gemstones into the casting process results in a seamless fusion of metal and stone. Each gemstone is set within the metal, adding depth and dimension to the final piece.
The rough, natural setting of the stones enhances their raw beauty and creates a truly one-of-a-kind look.

Embracing Imperfection
One of the most enchanting aspects of sandcasting with integrated gemstones is its unpredictability. Each piece is unique, with variations in texture and stone placement that add character and individuality.
Embracing imperfection is key to appreciating the beauty of sandcast jewelry with integrated gemstones.

Sandcasting with integrated gemstones is a timeless technique that adds a touch of rustic charm to our jewelry collection.
