My grandfather passed away several years ago, but recently a family member passed the remnants of his former jewelry business to me. Included are approximately 50-75 different deco-style findings, bails, settings, hinge pieces and other decorative elements intended for reproduction casting. I know this because they are in an envelope which reads “20 each silver”
I am not sure what they are made of- seems to be metal though- and I would love to have them cast up, as he intended, in silver.
How does one pursue this? I have zero casting experience. I would prefer to send these off and have them come back reasonably soon- and I would like to have the originals preserved- not destroyed in process.
I am looking for recommendations for this type of service as well as some hints on what they could be made of.
Thanks ever so much!
