A zero-waste fine-silver charm collection made using salvage precious metal from the wax casting process. Working with our London casting house, Just Castings, we create one off-pieces by dropping molten pure-silver into cold water. Read more about the collection here.
"Created as a sign of optimism, the WATER collection is made up of individual one-off pieces that have evolved from an age-old technique and look upon it with fresh eyes." Alice
The collection derives from the age-old process of Lost Wax Casting. Residual silver from the traditional casting process is collected, melted down and dropped into water to create beads to recycle. By experimenting with the water drop process, adapting the height and size of the molten metal droplets that fall into the water, we have influenced the forms created at this stage of the process and use the silver in a zero waste single cycle.
The WATER collection looks at the purity of the liquid form, and the exceptional nature of the process. Every charm that we create has its own unique form and character. The shapes we create come in a series of nuggets, flats and bubbles.
