New in the shop this week is this tiny solid silver badger charm. He was created using the ancient lost wax technique and as a result he is totally unique. This charm started out as a small piece of modelling wax which was carved into the shape of the badger. The wax is then used to make a mould which is filled with molten silver. During the process the wax is "lost" and replaced with silver, so the original wax model is gone for ever - which in turn means that this badger is truly unique and "one-of-a-kind" The badger measures approximately 30mm from nose to tail and is 17mm high ( including the hoop ) The badger's width is roughly 10mm and he is hallmarked underneath his right front paw.
