METALS SUMMER SESSION 1
MAY 28–JUNE 2, 2023
Introduction to Jewelry Fabrication
Exciting jewelry can be made in many ways with a vast array of materials, and without a lot of equipment. Each student will create a suite of mixed-metal jewelry (earrings, pendant, cuff bracelet) with an emphasis on creating well-crafted pieces that relate to each other. Our discussions will center on designing through simplification, abstraction, and creating interest with volume and texture. Working with copper, bronze, and silver, we’ll use cold connections to join metals and add nonmetallic materials like fabric, plastic, and wood. Beginning level. Lower metals studio.
