Create clasps that are safe, secure and truly one-of-a-kind. Come up with unique solutions to complete your designs. Learn the key, box and sphere clasps, make original simple latches, and unusual shaped ear nuts. We will also use hydraulic press shapes as clasps. Customize terminals and findings to unify your art jewelry. We will explore a variety of solutions to link your custom-made clasp to the rest of your piece. Students are expected to go with their own design impulses in order to explore new ideas in finishing their jewelry. Basic fabrication, including soldering is required.
