Vintage 14 Karat Lost Wax Casting Of A Colorado Columbine Flower


Or, I’m So Old My Work Is Now Vintage

Then I pulled a mold so I could cast them for my very first production line. Didn’t go well, though, that’s when the Hunt Brothers manipulated the precious metals market and Silver went from $5 an ounce to $50 and then crashed. They almost destroyed my business…and I almost lost my house…

And I survived…
