CLASS DESCRIPTION This class is a combination Hammered Metal Jewelry and Enameled Jewelry Class! You get the best of both worlds!! Use letter stamps and texture hammers to create one of a kind hammered jewelry. Students can create wearables including bracelets, pendants, and earrings from copper, brass, and nickel. After you create your pieces you will learn to enamel them! We will explore opaque enamels with strings/frit or transparent enamels. We will also learn processes including dry sifting, stenciling, and basse taille.
INSTRUCTOR Lindsay Huff is an artist and metalsmith who creates wearable art and works primarily in enamel. Her artistic process stems from a fascination with her materials and environment. Lindsay graduated with a BFA in Metalsmithing from Syracuse University, where she began her first experiments with enameling. As an artist, Lindsay loves the act of transformation and the dialogue between certainty and uncertainty: how glass enamels react with each other, the anticipation of waiting for a piece to reveal itself after a firing, and the hammered metamorphosis of sheet metal to finished vessel.
