JEWELRY DESIGN CAMP
Next Sessions: Oct 6-12, 2013 and Oct 13-19, 2013
 
 
Immerse yourself into a week-long study of jewelry design theories, and their applications and manipulations with various materials, techniques and strategies.
 
Session 1: CONTEMPORIZING TRADITIONAL ETRUSCAN JEWELRY
This workshop is for anyone who loves to make jewelry, and wants to learn the theoretical underpinnings of good jewelry design, and some applications. This workshop is equally useful for beginner, intermediate and advanced student, alike. 
 
We will be examining traditional Etruscan jewelry, and how we can understand it from the vantage point of good jewelry design principles. We will learn and practice some basic techniques of bead stringing, bead weaving, wire working, color working, and design planning. Then we will do some thinking and experimenting with these and other jewelry making concepts and techniques in order to create contemporary interpretations of two or three Etruscan pieces of jewelry to see what we can achieve.
 
Session 2: FRINGE, EDGE, STRAP, BAIL, SURFACE EMBELLISHMENT IN JEWELRY – ART OR NOT?
In this workshop, we begin to understand a piece of jewelry in terms of its anatomical parts.   We explore a range of techniques, theories and strategies for creating each element, combining elements into a whole, and managing the transitions from element to element in our piece.
 
The primary project is to create a beadwoven BezelWorks centerpiece pendant, with fringe, edge, strap, bail and surface embellishment.   This workshop is an intermediate/advanced level. Some previous experience with making jewelry (whether bead stringing, bead weaving or wire working) is required.
