Fabrication

Fabricated Jewelry

Fabricated jewelry is made by bending, cutting, soldering and working the metal in its raw form. There is no mold made to produce a fabricated piece unless it is made after the piece is finished.
Although half of jewelry is fabricated it is a dying art and not usually done anymore. Fabricated pieces of jewelry tend to be stronger and the design more crisp.
