This video documents the making of a silver necklace inspired by Mozart's "The Magic Flute". The green and purple material is wax, which is then cast (using the lost wax casting process) into silver. This necklace is made up of 50 cast parts and 7 tube set diamonds. This necklace is the first in a series of pieces inspired by the opera. Coming soon: Turandot, Isolde & the Queen of Spades!

Hi Jen, this video is fantastic! I'm curating an exhibition for Crafthaus called "Piece Progressions", and I think your video would fit the theme extremely well: since your video is very self-explanatory you wouldn't need to submit anything extra, just the video. If you are interested, the description of the exhibition is here:
