I just added another sterling silver pendant to my Sterling Charm Sale! page. Like the other charms and pendants you’ll find over there, all of these were cast by my husband and me when we used to take lost waxing classes. That means we had to clean and polish these puppies by hand afterward. It is a lot of work, but you get some amazing detail with this process, so I think it is well worth it.
If you would like to know more about the lost wax casting method, I have a tutorial on my About.com site.
