Don't try this at home

For those of you curious about the jewellery making process, here are some pictures of the last stages of casting. In these images, metal is being heated to a liquid state and then shot into a mold of the piece with centrifugal force from the rapidly rotating arm. You can just make out the orange glow of the super-heated melting pot (otherwise known as a crucible) going around and around!
