Intro
It's a technical and conceptual course designed for people who already have a basic level of jewellery making. After a theoretical lecture on necklaces and its movements, the portability, the connections and the clasps, the student will be guided on conceptual research of shape. The aim of the course is to think and create unconventional solutions for a modular necklace. Together with the students, we will find multiple solutions for connections, links and locks.
