Nope! Many of the pieces in this program aren't even cast pieces in the first place, but no matter the initial methods of production, we're using the word Recast for its more commonly known meaning, like "her doctoral thesis has been recast for the general reader." The doctoral thesis had already fulfilled its intended purpose and by recasting it, the PhD candidate allows the thesis to reach a new audience and fulfill a different purpose. We're doing this, but with jewelry.
