She recently launched Gotham Girl, a line of jewelry dedicated to the experience of being a woman in NYC. These photos show how she made her best friends necklace.
|She traced her template in blue wax. See the other sketches in her idea book?|
|She cut the form out of the wax.|
|She smoothed and finished the wax. She said this was the hardest step.|
|It resulted in a finished wax shape, ready for use in a mold.|
|The wax shape created the mold, used to create a rough casting that is ready for finishing.|
|The finishing process is by hand as well.|
|Best friend necklaces, for friends who are alike but different.|
Thank you, Ms. Tang, for the use of your blog's photos and for the fun look at life in the City and the jewelry making process.
