Last night was the last jewelry class until the fall.
I’m really going to miss this weekly time of learning and working in the lab.
However, the exciting news is that the next session will be devoted to jewelry casting! Whoot!
There are some in the class who have done this before and shared some really great pieces they made.
I have particularly enjoyed making component pieces from sheet metal…
texturing, doming, and learning(attempting) the skill of bezel setting stones.
Here’s a little gallery of some of the jewelry I completed during this session.
Hand cut, lace textured aluminum components
Die cut, textured copper with a wash of emerald alcohol ink
Copper washers stretched in the rolling mill, then textured
Bezel set turquoise with textured sterling swirls
Hand textured copper disc with glass, bone, and ceramic beads
