Multi-Purpose Room
Culver City Veterans Memorial


Presented by Brad Smith

Brad Smith will share with us techniques for
inexpensive sand casting for home or shop.

While lost wax casting is the mainstay of the jewelry
community, the process is lengthy and requires
expensive equipment. Delft sand casting can produce a
silver, bronze, or gold casting quickly and easily in the
club or home workshop. The process is easy to learn,
the kit is inexpensive, and the results are accurate and

Brad is a studio jeweler and lapidary, teaches
jewelry at the Santa Monica-Malibu Adult Education
Center, and has authored several books. He is a longtime
member of the Club and has served in most positions
from Field Trip and Membership Chair through
VP and President. He developed our first website,
has taught lapidary skills, led field trips, worked at 20
consecutive Fiesta of Gems shows, and has been Show
Chair for several of them.
