In May 2011 I had the fantastic opportunity to undertake work experience at Ortak Jewellery in Kirkwall, Orkney. I worked with some absolutely fantastic people who guided me through the process of manufacturing my own piece of jewellery

2011-05-24 15.38.03The piece was first CNC milled in wax after being modelled in CAD software, Rhino.

2011-05-27 09.25.08The piece was cast along with many other Ortak pieces using the lost wax casting process in plaster.
