This class will explore how to integrate clasps and closures into jewelry design, and how form and function can be combined with innovative approaches to designing clasp and closure mechanisms. Expand your design horizons; combine form and function by rethinking clasps and closures for jewelry.
The clasp doesn’t have to be a separate thing isolated out-of-sight at the back ends of the chain. It can be part of the main attraction. Integrating clasp and closure mechanisms into the main attraction can create exciting and interesting new design solutions.

This is the only class of the type being offered in Colorado from Andy! In this 4 Day version of Surfaces we explore all sorts of surfaces--rolled, hammered, torched and layered--using everything from burs to corn husks and ingot molds. The goal is to develop a vocabulary of textures that can be replicated. We'll even build a brooch or small object from samples discovered in class.
