Solution

  • Step 1: A copper mold of the Virgin Mary pendant was created by using CNC milling. CNC milling is a process that uses computer-controlled machines to carve out a desired shape from a solid block of material. The copper mold was designed to have the same dimensions and details as the final pendant, but slightly larger to account for the shrinkage of the wax and metal.
  • Step 2: 30 wax patterns of the Virgin Mary pendant were made from the copper mold with injection molding technique. Injection molding is a process that uses a heated barrel to inject molten wax into a metal mold. The wax cools and solidifies in the shape of the mold. The wax patterns were identical to the copper mold, but made of wax instead of metal.
  • Step 3: The wax patterns were used to create stainless steel pendants by using lost-wax casting. Lost-wax casting is a process that involves coating the wax patterns with a ceramic material, heating them in a furnace to melt and remove the wax, and then pouring molten metal into the hollow ceramic molds. The metal solidifies and takes the shape of the wax patterns. The ceramic molds are then broken and removed, leaving behind the metal pendants.
  • Step 4: The stainless steel pendants were polished and electroplated with sterling silver. Polishing is a process that uses abrasive materials to smooth and shine the surface of the metal. Electroplating is a process that uses an electric current to deposit a thin layer of another metal onto the surface of the metal. The sterling silver layer gave the pendants a brighter and more attractive appearance.
  • Step 5: The diamonds were inset into the halo around the Virgin Mary’s head. Gem setting is a process that involves creating holes or grooves on the metal surface and inserting gems into them. The gems are then secured by using prongs, bezels, or other methods. The diamonds added sparkle and elegance to the pendants.
