David for NEW  SKETE FARMS and The Monks of New Skete


“As a high school teacher of jewelry arts, I have used Billanti Casting for all my casting needs and have had the great fortune of having what I can only describe as a personal friendship with the company.  Whenever a student would ask a question I could not answer, it was Billanti Casting I would contact for the answer. Whenever I had a question regarding casting or metals, it was Billanti Casting that helped me with the issues at hand. Billanti has always been prompt with my castings and  have always taken  care to  insure that whatever student blank was sent to be cast was treated the same as those being cast by professional jewelers.  I have recently retired but continue to use Billanti Casting for my personal casting needs. In the current economy it is good to have a company to work with that you can trust and one that gives you the feeling that you are more than just another ID number on a tag.”  – Ritch S. Leone, Nantucket Island, MA

“I have happily been using Billanti's casting services for over 30 years. The results are always excellent and on time. It is a pleasure to do business with the Billanti family.” – Joel Schwalb, Nyack, NY

“Great service, best quality and value we have found. A family business we are proud to be associated with for many years.” – Tiffany A., New Orleans, LA

“I am a Swedish born jeweler living and working in London, UK.  My association with the Billanti’s started way back in the early eighties, when I was doing lots of shows in the USA, like the New York International Gift Fair, th
e Philadelphia Museum of Art Craft Show and many others. I got interested in producing cast studio multiples in silver and an American college warmly recommended the Billanti’s.  So, I went to see them (then still on Manhattan) with my first model, a very large brooch, and, as I recollect, probably really tricky to cast. I was very happy with the result so I started producing more and more pieces to be cast, usually large and three-dimensional and certainly very demanding of the casters.  The quality remained consistently good and enabled me to produce jewelry with a flawless finish.

     “Although I no longer do many shows in the USA I continue to have my pieces cast by with Billanti because I find the quality of their castings unsurpassable.  Every piece in my collection is cast by Billanti Casting.” – Gun Thor, GUN THOR JEWELLERY, London, England, UK

“Billanti Casting has been part of my professional life for 40 years.  Their reliability and predictable delivery time is only one of the reasons I’ve continued to use their services.  Since they will cast anything, I’ve been able to develop a multitude of unique components to use in larger cast and constructed pieces.  This has made it feasible to market an essentially ‘one of a kind’ line.  While this may not be an efficient method of production for other jewelry manufacturers, it has allowed me to do it my way and still survive all these years.” – Angela Conty, Salisbury, MA


“Have been working with Billanti Casting for over 40 years and was never once disappointed.  Confident, caring, informative, helpful – I can’t recommend them highly enough.” – Sara Kennedy, CELLAR WORKSHOP, Westport, CT

“Billanti's reproduction of a period brass Hepplewhite pull was amazingly detailed and nearly as thin as the original.  I was very impressed with their fine work.” - Nancy Cogger Andersen, LONDONDERRY BRASSES, LTD. - "When Authenticity Counts"   www.londonderry-brasses.com

“I have a tailor-shop in Sweden where I sew reproduction 19th century "folk-costumes."  Billanti Casting has for many years cast reproduction buttons and buckles for me in both brass and bronze. The workmanship has always been of the highest quality, done in a very timely fashion. The administration (billing and shipping, etc.) has also been very consumer friendly.” – Paul Höglund, Rättvik, Sweden    www.hoglundsskradderi.com

“I have been using Billanti Casting for many of my projects, both in my wholesale line, and for custom orders for many years. Over the years I have relied upon them for most of my casting needs.

“I would just like to say that Billanti has been producing clean castings and beautifully made molds for me since the early 1970's. One can always depend on quick processing time.

“Some Things Never Change - A long time ago I couldn't find anyone in my area who was capable of casting my over-sized chess set pieces, so I opened the Manhattan yellow pages, randomly picked a casting company, and headed to 47th Street.  I have this recollection of sliding my 20-some waxes under the thick plexiglas window and hearing a terse reply to the effect of "come back Thursday."  After the previous, stumbling-bumbling attempts of those who looked at my job like it was an unconquerable mountain, the matter-of-fact exchange was simultaneously unsettling and reassuring.  (I had tried two other vendors and even bought my own oven, torch, and casting rig.)  But I guess I must have come to the right place.  And indeed I had.  Thursday came and I left with success, in days, for a task that previously consumed untold months.

     “Approximately 25 years later---yes, 25... hey, I was busy---I wanted to duplicate the chess set. I thought, let me try this new Internet thing, so I Googled "Billanti" to find that same 48th Street address again.  They were now on Long Island, but the help and expertise are the same.  I'm still not very knowledgeable about the technicalities of casting---although having tried myself I know how tricky it is---but I don't have to be.  I send my ill-prepared models off to New Hyde Park and they come back as art.” - Jack Bellis, www.jackbellis.com

“I received my order today – thank you! The pieces turned out wonderfully. I realize I am new to casting and am still learning much about jewelry making – this created a less than ideal model that may have created some challenges that more knowledgeable people would have avoided. Your experience and craftsmanship made my pieces possible. Also my father, who is a retired jeweler and goldsmith who did casting for the trade, sends his compliments on your excellence as well saying that your work is some of the best he’s seen.” - Eric Imperiale, CA
