Aluminium Jewellery

One simply cannot ignore the pace at which aluminium jewellery is gaining in popularity all over the world. With the prices of gold and silver increasing significantly over the past couple of years, the public does not have the money to purchase jewellery manufactured from those metals. Apart from being the second most common metal on planet earth, aluminium is quite affordable too. Also, this metal is quite malleable, allowing artisans to create delicate earrings, elaborate bib necklaces, cuff bracelets, and much more. Unlike silver, which tarnishes when exposed to the air over an extended period, aluminium is stable and does not corrode or tarnish when exposed to the atmosphere. In fact, you can also wear it in water. Since trinkets made from this metal are extremely cheap, owners do not mind if someone steals it. Thanks to the popularity of such jewellery, more and more people have started manufacturing aluminium jewellery and selling them through online mega stores. You too can earn a decent amount of money per month by selling aluminium bracelets, necklaces, earrings, and much more. You first need to find a reliable source from where you can purchase aluminium sheet metal, because you will need it for the manufacturing process.  Here are some of the advantages of aluminium jewellery.

How to make aluminium jewellery

• Like all other jewellery, the first step to create jewellery with aluminium is to create a wax pattern, which is then created into an invested mould with plaster.

• Put the mould into the oven until it hardens. During this process, any residue wax will also melt and come out of the plaster mould. When setting up the wax pattern, the cavity of the mould is set.

• Cut the aluminium sheet metal into smaller pieces and put it inside a special receptacle that can withstand high temperatures and heat the aluminium until it melts. Now pour the molten metal into the hollow cavity of the mould with a centrifugal casting machine or a vacuum machine.

• Wait for a couple of minutes, drop the mould into a bucket containing cold water and the mould will dissolve. You can now take out the jewellery, which is a carbon copy of the wax pattern.

• The next step lies in removing traces of plaster from the completed jewellery, and polishing the same.

• Place the ready to use jewellery inside a jewellery box and affix a price tag on it. It is now ready for sale.
