Creating elements that combine form with function will add to the uniqueness of your designs. The challenge is in duplicating them. Jayne Redman shows you how by introducing the many methods of making tools and jigs she has developed. This workshop will focus on ways to duplicate three dimensional shapes in wire and sheet using hard and thermal plastics, wood and steel.
Gain the knowledge to comfortably modify existing tools and invent tools and jigs of your own design. Create perfect wire loops, single and reverse curve ear wires, and linkage systems. Make a series of tools that will give you time saving ways of measuring, cutting, connecting and forming wire or sheet. You will be able to make exact duplicates of your forms and findings, enhancing your craftsmanship and adding appeal to your jewelry.
