This workshop is for jewellers who already have some experience with brooch backs and have participated in a workshop on pin mechanisms and brooch back design with Daniela Malev, but would like to explore further application and understanding of this complex subject to their own work.
This workshop is an intensive 2-days follow-up on the integration of pin mechanism into the design of a body of work (brooches) which the participant is currently involved with. Single and group consultation on integrative solutions for the brooch back are the main part of this workshop. Exercises and a refresh on the different types of mechanisms are also part of the workshop, and lots of samples will be available for studying.
Materials: Bring work in process, materials, try-outs, scetches, the concept of your current work on brooches, tests on possible pin mechanisms and unfinished pieces.
For consultation and analysis you are also welcome to bring finished pieces of which you think the brooch back and the mechanism could be improved.

About the teacher:
Trained as a goldsmith in her hometown Dresden, Germany, she also holds a Master Craftman´s Certificate for Gold- and Silversmithing and studied Jewellery Design at Staatliche Zeichenakademie Hanau. She concluded her formal studies with a BA and MFA degree in Gemstone and Jewellery Design at the University of Applied Sciences Trier/Idar-Oberstein, Germany. Her jewellery work is inspired by a sense of order behind all things. Her jewellery pieces are made of contrasting materials and complementary elements and aspects which become a unity.
One of her special fields of interest are brooch backs and pin mechanisms and their integration into the design of the whole brooch. She is convinced that mechanism and attachment of a brooch hold a tremendous potential for the design of a brooch in its entirety and need to be developed with equal importance. She has been invited internationally to give workshops on this subject. Her workshops initiate and encourage a conscious approach to the design of the brooch back and its mechanisms. The fact that there is a great interest in this field, but hardly any literature, inspired her to publish the book To The Point – pin mechanisms and brooch back design.
