Sports Memorabilia and Models

Sports memorabilia and prizes, including badges and cufflinks and true to life models can be custom made to order in gold, platinum and silver, including the new non tarnishing silver argentium.

Using the age old method of lost wax casting*, accurate replicas of yachts, motor bikes, rugby balls etc can be 3D modelled in wax and then cast in almost any metal and then given a high quality finish.

The first image is of the 3D wax motocycle model prior to casting, the second is of the casting in gold.

The gold motocycle was then hand finished by the client (another jeweller) as a 40th birthday present for his son.

*Lost-wax casting sometimes called by the French name of cire perdue (from the Latin cera perduta) is the process by which a brass or bronze sculpture is cast from an artist's sculpture. Other metals such as silver and gold are also cast. Intricate works can be achieved by this method, primarily depending on the carver's skills. In industrial uses, the modern process is called investment casting. An ancient practice, the process today varies from foundry to foundry, but the steps which are usually used in casting small bronze sculptures in a modern bronze foundry are generally quite standardized. Other names for the process include "lost mould," which recognizes that other materials besides wax can be used, including tallow, resin, tar, and textile;[1] and "waste wax process" or "waste mould casting", because the mould is destroyed to unveil the cast item.[2][3] Other methods of casting include open casting, bivalve mould, and piece mould.[3][4] Lost-wax casting was widespread in Europe until 18th century, when a piece-mold process came to predominate.
