Original Lost Wax Cast Jewelry by Marty Magic, Inspired by Fantasy and the Magic of Nature

Marty Magic is run by Marty and Alisha, a mother-daughter team. We create our unique designs in our Santa Cruz, California studio and our jewelry is made in America. Our jewelry is created by the lost wax process and is cast in bronze, sterling and 14K and 18K gold. Fantasy and the magic of nature are our muses.

Marty has been designing and making jewelry for over 43 years and Alisha has inherited both her mother’s talent and her entrepreneurial spirit. They have a small team of talented people who work with them in helping to bring their designs and creative visions to fulfillment.

The lost wax casting process involves creating a model in wax that is then suspended in a metal flask and investment is poured around it. (Investment is very much like plaster.) The solidified invested flask is then placed in a kiln and the wax model is slowly melted out until only the negative cavity, the exact shape of the original wax model remains. Molten metal is centrifugally spun into this negative space, or in the case of larger bronze castings, gravity poured into the negative cavity. After the piece has been cast it must be freed from the plaster and finished. Sprus are cut and ground and various polishing media, patinas and oxidations are used to bring the piece to its final polished state. If the design involves a gemstone, these mounted just prior to the final finish.

    I've been making jewelry for 43 years and what a great ride it has been! I am blessed to work with my daughter and to be doing something I love. Our designs are lost wax cast in gold, silver and bronze. Fantasy, fairy tales and nature are our muses.

  • Alisha McCormack

    Partner, Designer, Customer Service

    I love my job and look forward to coming to work! My mother and I work as a team and create jewelry by the lost wax method. I especially enjoy design time in our studio but I also take product shots, manage the office and answer Etsy conversations.

    Polishing And Shipping

    I'm excited to be working with Alisha in the the new Marty Magic Texas studio. With my leather working and jewelry making experience, I have an eye for detail. My 10 minute commute and the flexible schedule allows me to spend time with my family.

Production partners

  • Snell Casting

    Grass Valley, CA

    Snell Casting, a foundry in Grass Valley does our casting. My intricate designs are complicated to cast and I am grateful for their expertise. Having help with the production gives us more time to design, the part of our business that we love most!

Ear Cuff Fitting Instructions

An ear cuff slip on the outside edge of the ear's cartilage. Starting near the top of the ear, slide the ear cuff down along the edge of the cartilage. If the cuff is too loose or too tight it can be adjusted. Some can be adjusted with gentle finger pressure but in most instances you will need a pair of small needle nose pliers to open or close the flange of the ear cuff. A very minute adjustment goes along way.

Ear Wrap Fitting Instructions

Our ear wraps are lost wax cast in either sterling silver or bronze and the ear wire is securely soldered to the design. Should your ear wrap need some adjusting, appraise your ear in relationship to the design and with a pair of needle nose pliers gently bend the appropriate parts of the ear wrap to conform to the curvature of your ear. In most instance it is only the angle of the ear wire in relationship to the design that needs to be adjusted. My dragon ear wraps may need a little more "training." You may bend their tails and wings gently and their bodies slightly. Think of it as a chiropractic adjustment and be gentle but confident.

Care and Cleaning Instructions

Our sterling silver jewelry is antiqued lightly and sterling silver will tarnish or patina over time. To maintain the silver sheen, clean with Mrs. Wright’s Silver Cream and rinse with water. Do not dip in liquid anti tarnish cleaners.

Our bronze ear cuffs are antiqued lightly, and bronze will tarnish, or patina over time. To maintain the golden color, clean with Mrs. Wright’s Silver Cream and rinse with water. Do not dip in liquid anti tarnish cleaners.
