Cutting the Mold
After the now finished mold has cooled, the model is removed. This is an intricate and very important process of exact cutting. The silver model must be 'freed' in such a way that a later wax version of it (see removing the wax) will not be bent or broken during this removal process. When we have finished cutting the mold, there is a negative of the original model that we removed. This mold will be used to create all subsequent jewelry based on our original drawing and model.
