In this workshop with Giovanni Corvaja you will learn how to design clasps, fasteners and connections. The harmonious interplay of appealing clasps with the design of your pieces will make your jewellery into precious wearables. Learn how to fabricate functional mechanical fastenings such as spring clasps for necklaces, fasteners for settings, and clip mechanisms for earrings. After selecting the suitable alloys, you will see how tempering improves the properties of gold.
Giovanni Corvaja will show you how hinge calibers are most effectively employed, and how to develop precise geometric forms on the smallest scale to produce perfectly functioning mechanical elements. The skills conveyed in the workshop can provide a great aid to your future jewellery design activities.
