wonderful jewelry created by Marty Magic is lost wax cast in sterling silver,
and personally sculpted by Marty in her mountain studio. All of the designs
are Marty's originals, and all the processes are done by hand. Marty's designs
are whimsical, encompassing the realm of fantasy. The bats are detailed both
front and back, and designed as a wearable sculpture. The lost wax casting
process involves creating a model in wax which is then suspended in a metal
flask, and "investment" is poured around it. (Investment is very
much like plaster.) The invested flask is then placed in a kiln and the wax
model is slowly melted out until only the negative cavity, the exact shape
of the original wax model, remains. Molten metal is then centrifugally spun
into this negative space and allowed to cool and solidify.
After the metal piece has been broken free from the plaster, there is a long
process required in finishing the piece. Sprues (the bump at the opening where
the molten metal was poured into the mold) must be cut and ground and various
polishing media are used to bring the piece to its final polished state. The
piece is then oxidized, which darkens the recessed areas and shows off details,
giving the piece more of a three-dimensional, sculptural appearance.
This would be a wonderful addition to your own jewelry collection,
or a great gift for someone special.
