Ailsigr Jewellery is created by London based designer / maker, Ailsa Garlick. My designs are inspired by storytelling and myths, natural forms and the symbolic. I work in Silver and Bronze, using traditional techniques including the art of lost wax casting. Each piece is hand carved in wax, which is then made into a mould. During this process, the wax is melted away, hence the name "lost wax casting". Molten silver or bronze is then poured into the mould to cast a perfect replica of the wax carving. The piece then comes back to my studio to be filed, polished and shined to become the finished product.
