Jewelry by Cork
Phillip "Cork" Walden owns and operates "Jewelry by Cork" , Located in The Antique Depot in Skiatook, Oklahoma where he designs and creates "One-of-a-Kind" jewelry pieces for customers in a four state area. To make these small works of art, Cork uses a technique called "lost wax investment casting".
He uses ready made wax designs, or he hand carves wax patterns to make "one-of-a-kind" pieces, which are the most popular.
He takes the cooled designs of metal, files and polishes it and sets it with stones if they are part of the design.
A native of Eureka Springs, Arkansas, Cork believes his artistic abilities come naturally. He has family members who excel in stained glass artistry, tole and painting.
