Tender’s brass key rings are hand cast from solid brass in England, using the lost wax method. The original was carved by hand from a piece of box wood, and hand shaped into an apple. This was then used to make a mould, into which wax is poured. The wax is packed in plaster, and molten brass is run in, melting away the wax and hardening inside the plaster. The plaster is then broken away and the exposed apple is filed and cleaned up, and polished with marble chips and fine sand, to give it a deep shine. The apple is mounted onto a brass plated stainless steel split keyring.
