Every object can become a piece of contemporary jewellery: found objects, trash or broken tools can be transformed in precious jewellery.

The focus of the course is the practice of different brooch back and pin mechanisms using different materials.

During this course different cold connections will be demonstrated such as riveting, hinges and tension connection; in addiction we will be utilizing the welding machine (puk5) when there will be no other way to solder different materials traditionally.

Brass & Copper sheet along with steel wire for the pins will be provided.
Participants have to bring their own personal tools.
Previous jewellery making experience is required.
