Tell us about CAST...
We launched in 2016 and have since cast over 8,000 unique customer creations. We've hosted more than 600 events - some public in bars and restaurants etc., and some private to create bespoke wedding rings, run hen parties etc. CAST is simply our perspective; we took the things we loved (making, meeting, eating, socialising) and combined them. We wanted to make jewellery design more exciting, more accessible, and importantly, something regular people could enjoy and not feel the pressure to 'be creative'.
Tell us about your new at-home kit...
When we first launched the business and hosted events, customers would regularly ask to take home the tools so that they could continue to create from home. We only had a limited number of tools at the time so we couldn't really make it happen. However, quickly recognising the potential demand, we threw some designs together, worked tirelessly on the logistical side - and the rest is history!
Do you need any experience to use the new kit?
No skill or experience is required - just a little imagination! We've made the creative process (and tool selection) as accessible and universal as possible. People are 1,0000% more creative than they think. Mostly, they just need a nudge in the right direction!
Are there any limitations on the jewellery design?
The design scope is huge; there isn't much you can't create. You can change the shape, size, texture, add prints, stones, engraving, and we can cast in solid gold, silver, platinum and palladium. We've spent a huge amount of time developing and evolving our manufacturing process, so we're able to say 'YES' to most things!
How long until you get your finished jewellery?
We cast, hand-finish and return to the customer within three weeks.
