Each class will be divided between demonstrations, in-class work, and discussions. Students will complete at least one finished brooch by the end of this course. I will be presenting images of historic and contemporary jewelry as well as sharing physical examples of brooch backs. We will be discussing trends in contemporary jewelry to expand our ideas and approaches to jewelry.
