Event Description

From the iconic images of Coco Chanel and Nancy Cunard with their stacked bangles to today's fashion runways, the big bracelet is a classic that never goes out of style. Big cuff, tile and bangle bracelets have unique design and construction challenges that when met produce sensational studio and fashion jewelry pieces. These large-scale bracelet forms are also perfect canvases for dynamic polymer clay surface treatments. Learn to create large dramatic bracelets that have great visual weight, yet are light and comfortable to wear. You will leave this workshop with a repertoire of construction, surface and finishing techniques that will have you creating a multitude of attention-getting bracelets to wear or sell.

Techniques taught include: •Design considerations for large-scale bracelets •Constructing large featherweight cuff and bangle bracelets using Seth's unique extruded core and hollow form construction techniques •Constructing tile and cuff bracelets with precisely placed hidden channels •Integrating hinges and findings into bracelet designs for professional results •Modifying construction techniques to suit design variations •Designing coordinated sets of bracelets for stacking •Unusual uses of large bracelets in other jewelry forms
