What if you could make the same design over and over again, easily, accurately and quickly? You can with a a blanking die and Jayne will show you how!
Self-registering, one piece blanking dies give you the ability to quickly create multiples in metal sheet of the shapes you conceive, affording you time to get lost in the design process and experiment with forming and assembling. Jayne Redman has been using this method for her own jewelry for more than 25 years and has developed ways of creating dies and blanking multiples that dramatically speed up production.
This online Zoom workshop will teach you how to properly develop patterns that will result in successful blanking dies and introduce you to many of the engineering concepts that Jayne works with in her jewelry. She will take you through the design process from initial drawings to final prototypes and finished pieces. You will be amazed at how quickly you can go from original idea to duplicated shape as you make and use your own dies during class.
