Intro
In this workshop instructor Jesse Bert will talk with students about pin back mechanisms and what are important details to take into consideration for a good functioning and wearable brooch.
There are many different styles and methods for making the pin-back mechanism of a Brooch, and as a maker or jewelry artist sometimes it is difficult to know which might be best for the type of object you make.
Students will be lead through the process and all of the steps to create their own brooch. The mechanism that students will construct is one of Jesse's favorite's.  This mechanism is the style he feels works the best, and for that reason, it is the same one he has used to create all his brooches over the last 17 years.  An important element of all the work Jesse makes is the use of cold connections, such as rivets. In order to construct their brooches students will learn a special method for the preparation and use of rivets so that they are able to incorporate found or re-purposed materials in the brooches the way Jesse does in his own work.
