Create a fab ‘one-of-a-kind’ piece of silver jewelry by casting silver in cuttlefish bone molds! Cuttlebone is an ancient sustainable technique, where the soft layers of bone can be easily carved with a design of your choice. The mold can easily withstand high temperatures for molten silver, holding its form and shape until the piece is removed. Each mold can be used only once, hence your ‘one-of-a-kind’ jewelry. You will learn everything from scratch – from the design, carving the mold in cuttlebone and finally casting & finishing one piece of jewelry.
