PARTICIPATORY SPORT FOR CRAFT ARTISTS
I am the lucky recipient of the Revere Academy of Jewelry Arts 2011 New Student Scholarship. I took the Advanced Fabrication class with Alan Revere last weekend. I wanted to thank Alan and for the generous gift and making me feel so welcome!
I had great time and learned a great deal about making hinges and metalsmithing in general. My objective was to learn ways to put more movement in my bug brooches such as wings that flap and legs that wiggle. I had never made hinges before, so I made a classic 3 knuckle hinge. I also made a carved tab hinge out of rod--these hinges will make great bug legs.
