Introduction to Jewelry Design

Jewelry design online will be an opportunity to learn how to design a collection of jewelry or individual pieces before fabricating in metal or other materials. We will work on creating idea boards, rendering drawings, and model making. Jewelry is a communicative art/craft form that can tell a story and visually gives the viewer information about who you are. Learn how to push your ideas to the next level and create beautiful wearable art. You will be watching jewelry making demos and different ways to create unique pieces and creating designs based around these techniques.
