Lost Wax Casting
Lost wax casting as a technique towards creating objects has its roots in the Copper Age. We at Casting de Khrysopoeia are invested in this ancient practice. Lost wax casting is one of our most cherished modes of manufacturing. It is used to create a variety of jewelry styles and objects, from simple to extraordinarily complex designs, offering our clients a flexible and comprehensive range of products.
We specialize in assisting our clients with taking their ideas from concept to creation. Our expert design staff will work with you on ensuring that you are offered the best services, whether it's towards creating a one-of-a-kind piece or receiving consultation for developing your jewelry line.
There are many ingredients to developing your jewelry line. One major component that comes after a beautifully refined piece is completed is branding your line so that it reflects your creative vision. Another significant component is developing communications within the jewelry industry and with clients.
Our staff, including our Founder and CEO Karissma Yve, are experts in Accessory/Jewelry branding. We have successfully worked with and consulted many brands that present their collections commercially, including ones that present during Paris Fashion Week.
Our CAD/CAM services allow artists, jewelry stores, and jewelry designers to think outside the box when it comes to creating custom jewelry. No longer is the creative bound by what they can create by hand.
The CAD/CAM services at CdK are ideal for jewelry designers that want to create new pieces for their own private line or for jewelry stores. Jewelry stores will also find these services helpful as they can offer customers the chance to create unique, personalized pieces of jewelry; alternately, jewelry stores are able to utilize this service to create one-of-a-kind jewelry only sold at specific jewelry stores.
We juxtapose traditional bench-jeweler techniques with innovative technologies such as 3-D Printing. Using this technology for rapid-prototyping designs, producing large batches of ready-to-cast pieces. CAD design of rings and other jewelry enables the creation of consistent, symmetrical pieces without the tediousness and variability of wax carving.
When creating multiple pieces, jewelry molds become an essential ingredient in the production process. Numerous wax or plastic replicas of a model can be created from a mold in order to cast multiple pieces.
Setting stones into a wax model and casting metal directly around them can result in significant labor cost savings. This procedure requires several carefully monitored steps to avoid damage to the stones.
We offer Stone-In-Place Casting which allows you to receive full-scale service in setting any stone of your choice in your jewelry. Stones such as diamond, ruby, sapphire, garnet, and most synthetic gems can be directly cast in place using this service.
