Jeweler Jason Janow believes in the early arts and crafts philosophy that craft-makers should use materials that are local and familiar to them. When he leaves the trout stream, his pockets are often filled with river stones and twigs. Back at his studio, they come together with precious metals and gems to form the designs he loves.
Video description: Jason is hand pouring molten sterling silver into a mold. The video begins with the torch aimed at the metal (unseen) which is contained in the hand held crucible. Once the metal is molten, roughly 1640 degrees Fahrenheit, it is then poured into the mold. This is a crucial step in the casting process where one slip can mean the difference between a beautiful piece of jewelry, or splattered blob of metal on the floor!
