Casting Stained Glass--Final

Great! So this is my first proper stained glass box cast in silver that actually made it to the end. And by the end I don't mean the land fill.... About w40mm x l30mm x h35mm

I was going to make hinges but they did not work out in wax. But the top clicks in very nicely on this one. The next one I am going to make will have hinges, but these are quite difficult to make before you cast. It would be no problem if I could solder after casting but, obviously, with glass that is not an option. I am also going to make a box with this technique with titanium, and I will be able to solder on those, so I imagine the thing will be more ...ummm ...sofisticated ha ha ha .....
