MICRO- SCULPTURE & CASTING JEWELRY WORKSHOP

2-day workshop with Dimitris Nikolaidis

June, 9 & 10 2018

Duration: 12 hours

Jewelry has always been connected to sculpture ever since antiquity.
This seminar is an introduction to micro-sculpture and the process of lost wax, widely known as cast jewelry.
Participants will learn several techniques of silversmithing on special hard wax.
They will find out how a fairly soft material – wax – can be transformed into a three-dimensional object-jewel and then into metal.
The seminar’s curriculum includes the creation of the following objects: bead-ribbon developed in space, ring – form – with embossed decoration and modular openwork earrings with granulation.
At the same time, tips and guidance will be provided for the finish of cast jewelry.
