WHAT CAN I DO WITH A MOLD?

- recreate your awesome design for your bestie, secret club, or family unit! What a COOL, unexpected gift!!!!!!

- gain a little extra peace-of-mind in case your one-of-a-kind creation ever goes missing... (shout-out to your lovingly-carved, highly sentimental wedding rings!)

______________________________________
WHEN SHOULD I HAVE A MOLD MADE?

- at any stage in the process - before your wax goes out for casting, or after you've worn your creation for months/years - all good!

______________________________________
HOW DOES IT WORK?

From your original wax or finished piece, we create a professional quality mold, which can then be used to create an exact replica. It's a process requiring a whole lot of specialized tools and supplies - and *super* skilled hands to make it all happen!

the cost to make a mold is $85 + GST.

______________________________________
WHAT DO I GET?

- the mold, and one wax copy of your piece (just for fun!! - casting should always be done with a fresh wax.)

DO I NEED METAL 'COPIES'?

- for gifting, yep!! Just decide how many you'd like! Casting in gold / gold plating / gemstones / engraving are totally possible if you're feelin' fancy.

- for 'just-in-case' backups in case of loss or damage in the future, a silver copy is HIGHLY recommended, as the mold material does break down over a period of time. If that happens in 5 years, 10 years, the metal version can be used to create a new mold & fresh waxes for casting.

- wearing your wedding bands to the beach? on an epic vacation? consider creating silver replicas of your precious heirloom rings in case there's an "ocean incident" (ever wonder why you see people out on beaches with metal detectors? yep! it happens.... a lot.)

the cost to make a silver replica is $90 + GST per piece. This does *not* include polishing/finishing (see below!).

______________________________________
SHOULD I HAVE MY PIECES 'FINISHED'?

- for gifting, definitely. They'll be sparkly-new and ready-to-wear!

- a peace-of-mind backup copy can be finished at a later date if ever needed. If you choose to do it now, it'll be filed, sanded & finished at a level that's ready-to-wear or appropriate for re-molding in the future if the original breaks down.

the cost of finishing is $70 + GST per piece.

HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE?

- to make the mold, I'll need to borrow the original for a week or so!

- for additional pieces in silver or gold, about 8 weeks.
