Hand fabrication is the process of creating something with metal completely from scratch. The piece starts as 24kt gold & is alloyed into 18kt, 14kt or 10kt at the customer’s discretion. It is then melted into a molten liquid state, poured into an ingot & then rolled into a flat plate and/or wire of varying gauges, widths or shapes. The plates or wires are then cut, shaped & assembled using gold solder. A custom piece may consist of a single piece or may fit together like a jigsaw puzzle with multiple pieces & dozens of solder points.
