An intriguing piece of jewelry not only attracts the eye, but complements its wearer or tells a story.
During RISD Summer Studies, we move beyond appreciation to creation by learning the fundamentals of jewelry-making techniques, design and fabrication. A range of hand-tool processes is covered through practical exercises and imaginative concept-based projects. The non-technical side of the class focuses on idea development and the critical-thinking skills needed to realize a vision. On the technical front, we cover sawing, filing, hard soldering, scoring/bending, linkages, hollow construction, wire construction and more. In addition, discussion of design, materials, jewelry history and alternative techniques is part of every class.
