Looking for Caster

My name is Will Navran, my wife and I own Shakti Jewelry. We are
looking for someone to mold, cast and finish our models. We almost
exclusively use 18K Yellow and 18K Palladium White Gold–NO NICKEL!!!

We are currently using a commercial caster in New York and we have
been very dissatisfied with their service.

We look forward to hearing from you.

Hi, Will, I have someone excellent for you, Jay Whaley Studios. He
does my casting and does a gorgeous job plus he is a great human
being to boot. I don’t have his url handy but will get it for you if
you’re interested.


Greetings from the East Coast where it is cold, slushy and icy out.
I remember you and Shakti from my visit to Maui. I hope to see you
again in Tucson!

Have you spoken to Dan Grandi at Racecar Jewelry? I can’t think of
anyone else who is more dedicated to casting than Daniel. He is a
frequent contributor to the Orchid list and has donated moldmaking
services to the Orchid Raffle.

You can find Daniel at:

Daniel has been the caster for all of the beautiful sterling orchids
on the Ganoksin website. His work is really flawless.

Good luck,
Regards, Karen Christians
