Here is a 10 step process using my toaster oven mold making system.  I am experimenting with using a less expensive hard rubber on the outside and a squishier better type of rubber in the center.  Thank you @letsmakejewelry for the great tutorial! Toaster Oven temp is about 330* - 350* F and cook time is 50 minutes.  #silicone #siliconerubber #siliconerubbermold #moldmaking #moldmakingandcasting #siliconemolds #siliconemold #letsmakejewelry #craigdabler #atthebench #atthebenchtoday #onthebench #onthebenchtoday #metalsmith #metalsmiths #silversmith #waxcarving #waxinjections #lostwax #lostwaxcasting #lostwaxprocess #benchjeweler #jewelryschool #diycastings #diy #jewelrymaking #makingjewelry #jewelrymakingsupplies #jewelersofinstagram #instajeweler
My suggestion for saving precious metals.  There are lots of things to save from the jewelry shop because they contain precious metals and Magnetic Finisher water is one of them. In fact, I just combine the ultra Sonic water with this then once the container is full, put it in a pan and let it dry out in the sun. Once dry and more like a sludge, add it to the rest of your none bench sweeps type bucket and just hang on to it until you have enough to refine.  Hopefully you found this helpful and thanks for following us @letsmakejewelry ****************************** #preciousmetals #preciousmetal #refining #refiningmetals #learningjewelry #learningtomakejewelry #letsmakejewelry #diy #diyjewelrymaking #diycastings #makingjewelry #masterjeweller #makingmoney #metalsmith #metalsmiths #metalsmithing #goldsmith #goldsmithing #silversmith #shophacks #jewelryshop #atthebench #atthebenchtoday #attheshop #shopideas #jewelrybusiness #craigdabler #magneticfinisher #lucywalker #metalfinishing
Collecting lots of fairy dust with this ring, although my fingers aren't liking the process of sanding 😣
Design taking shape, using some box making techniques but a box it will not be. #agiusjewellery #handmadelondon #handmadeuk #designermaker #atthebench #londonjeweller #sterlingsilver #presciousmetal #bespoke #artisan #londonfashion #fashionaccessories
Doesn’t this dendritic opal remind you of a winter wonderland?? Yeah, yeah, it’s summer.  Well, kinda here in the PNW (we are sitting tight in our June Gloom but we’re used to that around here. Summer typically starts after July 4th around these parts). Paired with some hand pierced pines this pendant should come together quite nicely.  Swipe left to see a few different photos.
A Simple Coin Frame: I love video tutorials like this because they can teach so many people with just a few simple pictures.  @meszarosjohn is getting so good at piecing together the perfect pictures so that even the beginner can follow along and learn valuable information.

This is my favourite corner of my studio! πŸ’œ Where all the silver items are worked on and made. It's such a versatile metal, and I love polishing silver up to a super sparkly finish with my rotary tool (I get quite lost in it if I'm honest!)

I had an amazing four days at the market this weekend. I’m sitting here getting ready to start piercing some earrings for @childhoods.end.gallery and my inventory and am ruminating about exactly how lucky I am. After having a tough couple of months emotionally, I’m taking time to be truly grateful for all of the abundance in my life. My family, my creativity, my business, my customers, my community. I do not know how I would have made it thru the last several months without each of the above mentioned. So this week I’m going to be posting about individual things I am grateful for. I would like to suggest you do the same. Please feel free to tag me, if you do so ♥️
The Skeleton Hand Midi Ring πŸ–€ Warning - don’t get too excited to see if the solder has flown properly that you forget to quench! 😬 This one’s going to leave an interesting scar πŸ˜‚ βš’  #skeletonhands #skeleton #bones #jewellery #handmade #handcarved #carvedwax #wax #ferriswax #midirings #atthebench #jewellersbench #madeinengland #benchpeg #finejewelry #cast #silver #soldering #quench #jewelleryworkshop #fingerprint #highfinishedjewellery  #designmaker #wildbonesjewellery
On the bench. Struggling a bit to get my jewellery mojo working today. I’m getting very distracted by beautiful natural stones in the muted afternoon light. Most of these stones are different varieties of amethyst. My favorite is the tiny little opal with flashes of colour.
Back at work, playing elf in my workshop soldering earposts on new stock for the Havana earrings!

This emerald came out of a ring and was recut. Mirroring the original ring design, our customer ended up with one spectacular pendant. ⁣ ⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣ ⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣ #dutilles #customjewelry #madeinnh #lebanonnh #masterjeweler #atthebench #uppervalley #uppervalleyvtnh #instashop #foundinleb #emerald #emeraldpendant #yellowgoldpendant #wheatchain
A beautiful twist on the traditional halo, this ring was designed to incorporate our client's diamonds.  Unique angles and embedded scroll patterns add charm and elegance.

#wherethelightshinesthrough - ring in slow slow progress... - the only thing that makes up for the ‘manual labour’ involved with turning old lucite into a ring are the photo ops in betweenπŸ˜‚ - luminosity?

Lining up diamonds for the next job and getting a start on the platinum halo for the centre stone. A not-so-glamorous beginning at the bench for what will become a really beautiful ring.
Made a batch of sweet little pine/fern rings, some daisy chain rings (haven’t had these available since last summer!!) and a couple more tiny stamped pine pendants. These have all been oxidized since this photo and are now in the #honeandhighlight tumbling away.  Also will be bringing three new fold formed copper cuff bracelets to the market tomorrow.  You heard that right! I’ll be at the @olympiafarmersmarket tomorrow! It’s my rare Sunday market appearance!
My foldformed curly thing. 😁 #foldforming #learningnewthings #atthebench #hammeredcopper

😼 This guy says no to working on a Saturday. He won’t even let me sit at my bench. 🀨 Every once in a while he is right. πŸ™‚
Having a good show here at @eiteljorgmuseum  in Indianapolis Finished these up today and put them out and we’re sold within 15 minutes. ✨✨✨ I’ve had these Agate stones for a while and have looked at them again and again.. they are so different but fit together so well! The colors and shapes are perfect. I finally made something with them and let them go. #somtimesitshardtosaygoodbye #nativeart #agate
Working on photography this morning, trying to capture the morning shade light. What do you think of these shots?? I think I like it better than the light box.  These are my new favorite earrings. Hand fabricated, open work filigree in sterling silver and argentium silver, with sparkly green CZs in tube settings. $72- free shipping to US. PayPal & Venmo. Soon to be on my website. DM if you want them.
