Ear Wraps have a wire that curves behind the ear to secure the Ear Wrap in place (like a bluetooth headset). Marty's designs are whimsical and sculptural, carefully crafted and cast in solid sterling silver The jewelry and sculpture she designs arecreated by the lost wax casting process. She personally sculpt each original in wax ather Santa Cruz studio.
The lost wax casting process involves creating a model in wax that is then suspended in a metal flask and investment is poured around it. (Investment is very much like plaster.) The solidified 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, or in the case of larger bronze castings, gravity poured into the negative cavity. After the piece has been cast it must be freed from the plaster and finished. Sprus are cut and ground and various polishing media, patinas and oxidations are used to bring the piece to its final polished state. If gemstones are to be set they are mounted just prior to the final finish.
