Production Techniques

ELECTROFORMING

ELECTROFORMING

Electroforming is a technique that has been used by TOUS for more than 20 years, the result of a large investment into innovative new technologies. It allows for the creation of larger, lightweight, quality pieces without the need for soldering. Through the chemical process of electrolysis, particles of metal (sterling silver) are placed over a Perspex base to create jewelry up to 400 microns thick (that is to say, 100 times thicker in silver than a coating). The non-metallic core remains in order to give the piece stability and strength. In contrast, in gold pieces, the core used is made of a metal with a low melting point (pewter) and is always removed, as gold is sturdier than silver.
STAMPING
STAMPING
Jewelry stamping is done using a tool called a die, featuring an exact, shape or silhouette which is pressed down onto thin sheets of metal. This creates collection such as Tartán or Rupp.

CASTING

CASTING

Casting is the most frequently used method in TOUS’ workshops. A liquid wax is injected into a rubber mold and, once cold, is covered with plaster. Then the plaster cast is placed in a centrifuge where metal, usually gold or silver, is injected to replace the wax, creating the desired piece of jewelry.
