This may open a Pandora’s box, but any suggestions on how to find,
minus the expensive and frustrating trial-and-error, good casters and
fabricators for production lines?
I had thought of just posting to Orchid for recommendations but I
don’t see that type of question often – for suppliers, yes, but not
companies very often.
On the other hand, needing some production work done for an
inexpensive line of silver jewelry, I tried a fabricator who
advertised in Lapidary Journal…and it was a disappointing
experience that got me a 8 months behind and very frustrated (quality
was okay, but they guy was a flake and also didn’t tell the truth
about timing, etc).
Wanting to spend more time on art and gallery pieces, I realize I
need to develop a line I can market through reps or catalogues. I
will need a silver caster and fabricator to do the line I’m thinking
