Raw & Rugged Meets Class & Style
Featured in Look Book Atlanta
We compose our metal jewelry using the Lost Wax method of casting. This method is an ancient process dating back thousands of years to ancient Egypt, Greece and Ethiopia. It is still the best method for capturing exquisite detail in metal objects, which could not otherwise be produced given the complexity of their design. This process allows anything modeled in wax to be recreated fully and faithfully into various metals. The lost wax method is still employed today in the areas of sculpture and fine jewelry. It is a demanding and expensive process, but rewards the artisan with an object of great detail and individuality.
The Billie Hilliard aesthetic is worn and rustic thus leaving your piece with varieties of coloration and purposeful but secure cast cracks. Our pieces are meant to look as though you have discovered them on an archaeological dig or an estate sell.
