Sketches for jewelry, including the crescent Miss made for her own wedding. “I make these cast bronze necklaces; I carve them out of wax and then someone in LA casts them. They’re the only things that have stayed constant in my line, because they go well with whatever else I end up making. The season before this one I started using metal clay instead of wax, which is clay that has metallic particles in it. You can form and cut and shape it; you let it dry and then I have a mini kiln where I’d fire it. The downside is it’s so much work; you have to fire each piece for 5 hours and sit next to the kiln, and it was such a jump in my price point that it didn’t work out.”
