this is what has been keeping me busy lately.
Casting, Striking, Punching, Soldering, Chain-making, Sampling, Approving, Comparing to Drawings-ing, and Approving
Sometimes the rivets are struck/stamped into the little pieces of sterling silver or gold just as details. and sometimes they are all hand assembled. I like the ones that are hand assembled.
Last week I was up in our Rhode Island manufacturing facility and also visited our raw materials supplier. It feels great to know that not only does our raw precast bars and grain come from a supplier in the US, but that all of our manufacturing is done here and some in Europe. I love being able to visit the vendors in a day and sit down with the model makers and discuss changes that need to be made and then see the changes happen.
