silver water cast studs | medium
Medium water cast silver studs with silver posts and backings.
Each set is unique and slightly different in shape/size. Sizes will vary from 8-10mm in diameter.
Water casting is a technique that involves melting metal in a crucible, and pouring into cold water. You will get different results depending on the temperature of the water, the height from which you pour, and how fast you pour. For me this process has been an excellent way to reuse scrap material.
