Matching Sets

The focus of the class is to expand design awareness through technique. We will design and create a matching set; earrings and ring, pendant and cufflinks, etc. The objects themselves do not necessarily need to be identical to create a thematic or design element that runs through the pieces.

For example, earrings shaped round with an acid etched plate in the center, and a pendant that is square, but with the same finish. A cufflink set that has a city outline cut out on one, and embossed on the other. The use of different shapes speaks differently about the personality of a piece, for example, curves create a fluid sense, and angular lines can create an edgy or contemporary look. Conceptual approach needs to be tempered with structural elements – if you are designing a sculptural piece, is it a functional design? I.e. is it wearable?
