One of the oldest methods of jewellery making around, lost wax casting dates back to the 3rd century BC. Having been lost and rediscovered many times throughout history, the lost wax casting process is still used today for casting metal alloys.

Lost wax casting, also known as cire perdure, is an ancient process where metal alloys are made into a design from a wax mould. Throughout the years, the lost wax casting process hasn’t just been used for jewellery, it was also used to make sculptures and ornaments. Also, one of the main advantages to lost wax casting is the fact that you can replicate the same model as many times as you’d like. The most common metals used for this process are silver, gold, brass and bronze – so there are lots of opportunities for your jewellery making projects!
