Inventive Findings at Carrboro ArtCenter

October 25 – 26, 2014
Carrboro ArtCenter
Carrboro, NC

One of the special aspects of Jayne Redman’s jewelry is the way she combines form and function in her designs, creating unusual findings and assembly processes. Jayne will demonstrate her original engineering ideas and teach you how to apply them to your own work. She will consult with each of you to help you create concepts that are unique to your jewelry.

This workshop will focus on ways to make tools and jigs to form 3 dimensional shapes and unique findings including ear wires, linkage systems, and clasps. You will learn time saving ways of measuring, cutting, and connecting sheet and wire. You will be able to make exact duplicates of your forms and findings, enhancing your craftsmanship and adding appeal to your jewelry.

6. double spiral jig  Process-Blanking-Die

Jayne Redman has been exploring form and function with her jewelry for 18 years, developing ways of designing blanking dies and jigs that dramatically speed up the production process. She has also invented unique engineering and assembly processes for forming sheet and wire.

In this workshop, Jayne will share what she has learned about making multiples using blanking dies and designing jigs for findings using Aquaplast, a thermal reactive plastic. Students will be amazed at how quickly they can go from original idea to duplicated shape with tools made in class.

Topics covered include:

  • Pattern development for designing in sheet and wire.
  • Designing and sawing blanking dies from flat stock tool steel.
  • Creating wire hardened specifically for ear wire designs.
  • Altering pliers for alternative uses.
  • Using thermal reactive plastic to quickly and easily make custom jigs in any shape desired.

Process-Blanking-Diedahlia_n2

One-piece blanking dies allow you to easily cut out precise duplicate shapes from silver, gold and other non-ferrous sheet metals. Jayne Redman has been using this method for her own production jewelry for 18 years and has developed ways of creating dies and blanking multiples that dramatically speed up the production process. In this workshop you will learn how to develop patterns for this process and the method of sawing dies from flat stock tool steel. You will be amazed at how quickly you can go from original idea to duplicated shape as you make and use your own blanking dies during class. Jayne will be demonstrating her own inventive methods of forming, connecting, and engineering. Basic metalsmithing skills such as sawing and filing are required.

This is a process oriented not project oriented workshop although if you have a specific design in mind Jayne would be happy to work with you to problem solve. Please feel free to contact her at jayneredmanjewelry.com with questions.

* We will be using Susan Kingsley’s book, Hydraulic Die Forming for Jewelers and Silversmiths, as a reference.

Making Multiples

Process-Blanking-Die  Jig and Findings

One of the special aspects of Jayne Redman’s jewelry is the way she combines form and function in her designs, creating unusual findings and assembly processes. Jayne will demonstrate her original engineering ideas and teach you how to apply them to your own work. She will consult with each of you to help you create concepts that are unique to your jewelry.

The first part of the workshop will focus on learning the blanking die process, a method of sawing dies from flat stock tool steel to quickly cut out duplicate shapes in sheet metal.  The second part will focus on ways to create tools and jigs to form those shapes into 3 dimensional designs and then create unique findings for them including ear wires, linkage systems, and clasps. You will learn time saving ways of measuring, cutting, and connecting sheet and wire. You will be able to make exact duplicates of your forms and findings, enhancing your craftsmanship and adding appeal to your jewelry.
