"Fold-forming for Jewelry Making: Working Small"

We truly regret that due to the COVID-19 concerns we are cancelling this workshop

This workshop is about using foldforming methods in a smaller scale, aiming for jewelry making, concentrating on techniques that work for jewelry, and the most appropriate foldforming approaches textures, shapes and designs for small work.  Bracelets, brooches and earrings are addressed.  Entrapping a gem will be shown in a foldform. In addition to lectures and demonstrations, students can choose to make a bracelet, a brooch/pendant, or a pair of earrings.  Final finishing and construction may need to be done after the class depending on the student’s skill level.
