Hello Everyone, I have recently enjoyed doing some recent
business with Daniel Grandi and his company Race Car Jewelry. They
cast replicas from my supplied pattern and I was very satisfied with
their work and can personally recommend them for your casting needs.
I have seldom before found anyone as knowledgeable in the jewelry
making business and related fields, and will certainly look forward
to doing future business with Race Car Jewelry.
Hello All & Bill Kaline, Re: Your recent posting, I want to second
your satisfaction. Daniel Grandi recently used the metal model I'd
made, to make molds and waxes, then cast the little - and I do mean
little - leaves for me. I wanted the reproductions to look as
hand-made as my original and they did. They came to me quickly,
ready to use - and identical in appearance to the original! No
bubbles, no gaps, no holes; polished and patinaed. Before I made
the original, he answered questions about limitations so far as
thickness of my piece. I really appreciated that, as it saved me
wasted time creating the design in an unsuitable gauge. He kept in
contact with me via email. I knew when he received the original, when
castings were done (asking for my preference on finish), and when the
castings were mailed. I'm impressed and encourage anyone needing
casting services to contact Race Car Jewelry. Judy in Kansas, where
we are mourning with our friends and fellow citizens in NYC.
