Island Venus evolved from a lifetime of
piecing together jewelry for friends, family, and personal wear.
Curating and collecting components that are sometimes vintage, one-of-a-kind, or recycled,
it became difficult to part with the last of a beautiful bead or pendant. The desire to preserve something of beauty led
Giulia Casalino to the art of Casting.
Both Original and Inspired designs are molded and hand carved in Jewelers Wax.
These carvings are sent to a casting house,
in Rhode Island, to undergo the
Lost Wax Casting Method.
Liquid Metal is poured into the created
hollow mold, and forms the carved
shape into metal.
All Casted Components are Bronze.
Some designs may also incorporate
components of brass, copper, leather, & crystals.
