Spending the week at William Holland Lapidary School in Georgia taking a class in lost wax casting! I normally cast the teeth for my jewelry designs using sand casting which is great for my studio setup because it is small and doesn’t require much equipment. With lost wax casting you can cast much larger quantities at once and it is something I have been wanting to learn for a long time. These “bouquets” of shark teeth will soon be cast in silver and antique bronze!
Shipping out this custom shark tooth necklace today to @barnwell8! She sent me the tooth and I sand cast it with recycled sterling silver to make this one of a kind pendant 🙌🏼 I realized that I hadn’t cast any teeth since I reorganized my studio and it felt great to be back at it! Also got me really excited for next week, when I’m heading to Georgia for the week to take a wax casting workshop with @madmademetals at William Holland! Can’t wait to get creative with some new techniques!⠀
Want to get your hands on a pair of these sterling silver megalodon cuff links while supporting a great cause? Come out to @reduxartcenter Thursday night for the Love Your Oceans FUNdraiser! I’ve donated a pair of these bad boys for the silent auction. The fundraiser supports the Charleston Chapter of @surfrider and their local programs like Rise Above Plastics and Ocean Friendly Restaurants! Tickets are only $15 and there will be drinks, appetizers and live music! See you there!⠀
I just had to make this petite shark tooth necklace. It reminds me of an elephant! I have 100's of these and need to find ideas on how to use them. They are too pretty to be stashed in a bag! These were found on Florida beaches over the course of 40 years by family members I was not fortunate enough to meet.
Shark tooth cuff links are now listed on my website in two styles: Megalodon or Mako 🦈 Tag a man in your life that needs to rock a pair of these! How killer would these be for a groomsman gift?? Follow the link in my bio for more info✌🏼
(Big thanks to @matthewwinston for being such a great model😘)⠀
