 – How we design our pieces – 

Our jewellery is handmade in Australian on the Sunshine Coast. Once we finalise a new design we manufacture each piece by hand.

FORM WAX – We start with the raw form of wax from hard to soft to suit different textures and finishes. 

CARVE WAX – We carve the wax into rings, pendants or earrings with our tools, files, sandpaper, flames, blow torches, compressed air and hot electric wax carvers.

SPRUE – We then sprue the piece meaning we add a long piece of wax that allows us to connect the jewellery to a sprue tree. This attaches the rest of the wax pieces ready for the casting process. 

CAST – The wax tree is put into an investment plaster to harden and then in the kiln to further solidify. The molten silver is then poured into the cast and as it cools, the cast is then dissolved in water, to reveal the sterling silver tree. We delicately saw, cut, grind, or sand the sprue off each individual piece of jewellery. 

OXIDISE – Depending on the desired finish or texture of each piece of jewellery we may use an oxidising agent to bring out the definition of textures against a polished sterling silver surface. 

FINISH – When finishing each unique piece, we sand it with a variety of different equipment, before smoothing and shining with a polishing agent to achieve the desired effect. 

HALLMARK – We then hallmark all our pieces with the sterling silver hallmark 925. 

IONIC CLEAN – Once the polishing and finishing of the piece is complete we place it into an ionic cleaner to pull away any foreign materials left behind from the polish. 

POLISH – The piece is then rinsed in water and hand polished with a microfibre silver polishing cloth. 

PACKAGE – Now the piece is ready to be packaged up and sent to its lucky new owner!
