Confused as to which mastering technique is the best for your designs?
Here are a few thoughts that might help you to decide.
We produce around 1,000 new masters per month! That’s a lot of work, and due to the huge variation in the items we produce we use a wide variety of master making techniques, and skills! I write skills here to as for some items there is no better way than using a skilled artisan or craftsman to get the best results. We have some incredibly skilled traditional hand carvers here, working with a range of materials besides conventional waxes. Some prefer carving in wood, bone, or even horn to get the best results, depending on the item, and the skills of the carver, really it all comes down to how we can get the best result. It is a real luxury to have so of these wonderful but non-traditional (in the jewelry making sense!) skills available to combine with the more standard master making techniques.
