MAKE contributor and Makeys stylist Diana Eng recently schooled me on the lost-wax fabrication process, which she’s been using to craft her new Farfalle jewelry line (yes, named after, and shaped like, the pasta).
Diana partnered with a family-run manufacturing facility in NYC, where the pieces were created. The process involves pouring molten hot brass into a plaster mold.
Says Diana, “the lost-wax process… means that each piece still receives a lot of individual attention. Every Farfalle will be a little different and have its own character.”
For an inside look at the done-by-hand manufacturing process, check out Diana’s blog.
We'll assume you're ok with this, but you can opt-out if you wish.
