In this two day workshop students will be guided through a series of exercises that lead toward minimal, sophisticated solutions themed around new ways of thinking about jewelry, stone setting, and self expression. The focus of this workshop is to refine simple techniques and gestures in order to create innovative new solutions to the fundamental equation of jewelry.
April 8 & 9 11 am – 6 pm
