Ilana Issacow works directly with museum curators and retail merchandisers to create replicas of jewelry and gifts from their artworks. Each step of the creative development is subject to the customer’s approval.
A clear picture of the image is of paramount importance in order to recommend the type of product to be made, the shade of plating and the enamel color(s). When needed, a sketch is drawn from which the wax model is made, followed by the master-model in metal. A copyright tool is produced and the final model is then cleaned, stamped and ready for production. The estimated cost per piece is given.
With a perfectionist's eye, Ilana personally oversees every phase of the process from concept to finished product.
