This is an introductory jewelry design course exploring cold connections in metal arts. The focus of this class is contemporary methods to create unique jewelry designs. By the end of this 5-session class, students will feel comfortable with varying methods of producing jewelry in new ways (from electroforming a bangle bracelet to creating wire-wrapped briolette earrings to creating wearable art with mixed metals and fiber). Through a series of hands-on demonstrations and exercises, students will learn the basics of contemporary cold-connection jewelry design, allowing them to produce one-of-a-kind works of art. We will cover the essential components of jewelry design as it relates to wearable art and metal arts.
