Making jewellery

A common method for making brooches and other jewellery was the 'lost wax' process:

1.take a clay mould of an already existing brooch

2.make a wax model from that mould

3.touch up the wax model - making changes as you see fit

4.make a clay mould from the wax

5.cast another brooch
