Connecting dissimilar materials, such as wood, rubber, fabric, plastics, pebbles/shells, or other found objects into jewelry can be tricky. Learn to make the connection and capture objects while keeping your design aesthetically pleasing, and appropriate in both form and function.
This class will teach various methods of connecting where soldering is not appropriate. Tabs, hinges, rivets, and tension fit joints are just a few of the tricks taught to keep connections smooth while securely holding an object.
Students can choose to focus on creating a number of samples or work towards a finished piece of jewelry.
