You need to find a caster who will work with you and help you trouble
shoot. Until recently I found most of the casters I worked with very
eratic. Sometime a piece would turn out perfect, other times the same
piece looked like it was dragged behind a car for a couple of miles.
I am now using Daniel at Racecar jewelry. He is an orchid member. He
takes the time to examine my pieces and help me trouble shoot. This
is the first time I ever had a caster try and educate me. I have
been through every caster in NYC and found most of their technical
advice has been less then great. Most times I felt like I was getting
excuses instead of results. I originally come from a different
industry, graphic design, where professionalism and courtesy towards
a client is a standard. If a client is pointed in the wrong
direction, educate them and work with them. It is just good business.
Dan does this. … Anyway, check out Dan’s website,
www.racecarjewelry.com… So far I am very happy. I have learned so
much since working with him. Its great!
