Serious enthusiasts can learn to make gold jewelry at home with wax molds and other jewelry equipment. Doesn’t it look fantastic? I think it is interested to design and make the gold jewelry by us. What’s more, we can make what we want with cheap prices. However, gold fashion jewelry is more expensive and time-consuming to make than other types of jewelry.
1. You’d better tie back your hair and remove any dangling jewelry to avoid accidents. Prepare all the equipment you need. Cut apart your wax in half width-wise to make identical halves. Use a wax file to create an even surface on your wax halves. Set one of the halves aside.
2. Carve out a pattern in your wax with a razor or utility knife to form a mold for the piece of jewelry you want to create. Pay attention to the pattern, it should be equal to the length, width and depth that you want your finishing jewelry to be. Melt the gold with your hand torch and heated press. You need to put the gold into a container which can withstand high heat, pour the molten gold into your wax mold and make sure that the mold is being filled full. Doesn’t more the mold until the gold harden; it may take you about 45 minutes or an hour. After that you can open the mold and remove the jewelry.
Then you can polish the jewelry using gold polish and a soft, clean cloth. The last step is to add any beads, stones or gems to finish your jewelry. If you want to make a gold statement necklace, bracelet, attach a clasp.
