Jackie Kaufman's Profile
My name is Jackie Kaufman, and I am a Jewelry Caster and Designer in South Florida.
My jewelry is made using the age old process of "Lost Wax Casting". I use only professional equipment. My pieces are carved from a piece of wax, then cast using sterling silver. The sterling silver used is "recycled" jewelry from a major jewelry firm that no longer sells their items. How we "recycle" the silver is to take the jewelry pieces, melt them down, repour the silver to make new pieces.
I love using "recycled" silver. The pieces I create are solid pieces of silver, no solder is used to create my pieces.
The jewelry I make has a very "organic look", which means not everything is perfect. That is the look I strive for and that my customers love.... no two pieces are identical…
