Electroform Jewelry

ELECTROFORMING is a process developed by J. S. Electro-Plating Co., Ltd. of London in the 1960’s. A negative mold that is fitted with electrical contacts is placed into a specially prepared gold or silver bath. Metal builds up on the inside of the mold to any desired thickness, preserving the detail. Another method of electroforming involves coating an object such as a leaf, insect, etc. with a conductive coating and allowing metal to build up on the outside while in the bath. The object on the inside is then dissolved.
