Hello I am more of an engineer than a jeweller, and having had a lot
of fun making small “dental scale” castings was keen to make the
process more convenient and accessible. The Microfoundry is a lost
wax casting system that will melt 50 g of bronze in a 1000 watt
domestic microwave oven in about 18 minutes, we also supply a melt
out / burnout furnace to remove wax from the investment. fir further
details please take a look at www.facebook.com/steedcraft thank you

I have dabbled in jewelry making since the mid-1990’s, including
meta smithing, beading and metal clay. I took a 20-year recess from
jewelry making and re-engaged in it about five years ago. Currently
I am reacquainting myself with metal clay, which I first used in the
late 199o’s. I have fallen in love with the additions of copper and
bronze metal clays. I sell jewelry at weekend art and craft shows
and recently have started wholesaling.
Personally, I am happily married for five years now and have gained
with that marriage two wonderful teenage sons, both of whom have
challenges due to them being on the autism spectrum.
