One of my favorite moms from my 6 to 9 class last year is a jeweler. Her children were wonderful, and she was always quietly standing behind them – great Montessori mom. Anywhooo. AV needed to find out about this “lost wax” method and a bit of poking brought up that jewelers use this method often in the process of making jewelry. I rang her and she was gracious enough to invite us over the next day to see part I of the process. AV was absorbing and JV was the point guy on camera. Following are his photos and comments.
