Apart from making by hand, we also use cuttlefish bone to cast some prototypes. This method of casting is one of the oldest forms of jewellery making. Some early cuttlefish cast jewellery dates back to the VI – VII centuries. Archaeologists have uncovered silver belt buckles, buttons and other items from this period. All bearing the tell-tale texture of cuttlefish bone.
