Lost Wax Artist - Dawn Vertrees of DV Jewelry Designs


Lost Wax Casting

Lost wax casting is a 6,000-year-old process still used in both manufacturing and fine art. 
The precision and accuracy of the process have made it an ideal method for producing objects with intricate details, and close tolerances.

Hand-sculpted wax models created to be cast using the ancient process called the Lost Wax Casting.

The wax model I sculpt using soft green, purple or blue wax is duplicated into solid metals such as 
14k or 18k Gold by using the casting process. 

My original wax jewelry models are all made by hand using a variety of tools that I have found over the years that fine tune the details in my leaves, branches and wood textures. Using this process also includes my choice of soft waxes which allows me to control my designs plus allows me the undercuts I feel my organic designs need to look more realistic.

This new design below is available to be cast in your choice of 
14k or 18k Gold in Yellow, White & Rose Gold.

3.20ct Crystal Rough Diamond
Each leaf drape over the diamond 

The stems wrap around
the edge of the diamond.
