Learn lost wax casting; a technique has been used to make jewelry for thousands of years. Design and create a wax model, then “invest” it (make a mold of the model). The wax will be “burnt out” in a kiln, creating a cavity to inject with molten silver or bronze. File and sand to bring to a finish and, voila, you have a unique piece of jewelry! Kate Dunagan teaches jewelry at Vashon High School and has been dabbling in jewelry fabrication and casting for 40 years.
