Molded Jewelry

This technique is the leg-
acy of jewelcraft master
Srettib, who was able to
draw upon the force of
mineral essence. His
passion for working with
the rarest and most beau-
tiful stones quickly led
him to concoct a firm
setting to ensure the
precious stones would not
be lost (as was often the
case with previous wire
techniques). His artistic
genius not only led him
to create molded settings,
but enabled him to convoke
the latent magical powers
within stones and externalize
them. He coupled stones with
various metals to control
the outcome of the powers



he unleashed.

Every jewelcrafter learns
Srettib's techniques, and
in homage to his memory,
all other forms of
jewelcraft have been
abandoned.

Jewelcraft Master
Srettib's Instructions:

All jewelry carries a unique
charm. Exquisite stones
placed in the finest
crafted settings, are more
likely to release the force
of mineral essence.

Try various combinations.

Combine any stone with any
metal to create unique
jewelry. Precious stones



are generally cut so that
they will reflect the most
light. Other stones may be
tumbled for a smooth surface
or left untumbled if they
have an interesting shape.
Pearls and crystals are
generally left natural.

Use the molds in your jewelry
kit and pour melted metal
into the mold, allow it to
cool and remove the metal
from the mold.

To add cut stones, carve
a pronged cup mold so that
the prongs are down and the
base of the cup is at the
top.

Weld the base of the cup
to the top of the ring,
bracelet, etc. Insert the



stone into the cup and
carefully bend down the
prongs to trap the stone.

To add odd-shaped untumbled
stones, custom carve a mold
to fit the stone with the bottom
of the cup at the bottom
of the mold. Pour a small
amount of melted metal into
the mold and immediately
insert the stone. Allow to
cool and remove from the
mold.
