Design and handcraft
Each of the pieces that we produce in San San Atelier is handmade. We use different techniques depending on the product we are working on.
The design of each piece is the most important part of the jewellery process. We always try to produce original designs that you will not find anywhere else.
Our peculiarity is the handmade process, the care we put in every single detail and the quality of our work. Each single piece is special and you will not find two of a kind!
For our custom jewels, we do a 3D designs that we print in a 3D printer; this way we assure that it will be highly detailed.
The process is the same to the hand cast one; we use this resin piece as a mould. Then, by a manual melting process we get the final masterpiece. The result is a unique and durable jewel with a high quality and brilliance, all for a very reasonable price.
Lost wax casting
Jewelry casting is a process of making jewelry pieces that involves the pouring of liquid metal alloy into a mold. It is usually referred to as lost-wax casting because the casting mold is created using a wax model that is melted away to leave a hollow chamber in the middle of the mold.
The technique has been used for thousands of years and is used to make precise reproductions of original jewelry pieces.
Polishing and finish
This is the last but not the least important phase of the process. Every piece has a handmade polished in order to give them a smooth and shiny surface.
