Making Connections: Glass and Silver Jewelry

February 1st - March 22nd
Bianca Abreu |

This jewelry course is all about composition! It is an exercise in designing and executing wearables from start to finish using production-style methodology. We will make 3 different designs that explore balance, wearability and technique in this 8 week course. In the first half, students will learn to flamework beads at UrbanGlass, spending time drafting, replicating and cold working their beads. These will become a part of their finalized wearable pieces at Brooklyn Metal Works in the second half of the course, where students will be learning soldering, plier work, and other metal fabrication techniques. Once registered, you will receive a link to purchase a tool kit for the metal component of the class for an additional $115.93.Notes: Proof of Covid-19 vaccination required for this course. Masks are required to be worn for all studio coursework.

Due to the collaborative nature of this course, this course is only eligible for Chelicca Scholarship applications for Bead Project Alumni, not UG general scholarship applications.
