The Object jewelry sale is coming up. Fairly excited, lots of work to be made. It also leads in to the third project. Lots of idea about how to make these things work together with my large body of work.
Project 3 is two rings. The first is a wearable ring we make for our production line in the jewelry sale and the other is a sculptural ring that has fit with the first ring in some way.

Construction and Fabrication
Project #1: “Contained and Assembled”
Consider your ideas of concealing and revealing and containment. Create an
object or a wearable that explores the issue of containment conceptually,
formally or through its function.
Use “assembly” (multiple components coming together) as a methodology
for this project. Methodology is a system of methods used in a particular area of
study or activity. How will you make this project?
Consider how the idea of assembly contributes to the subject of containment.
What methods of assembly could strengthen your idea about containment?
Consider integrating these ideas of “assembly”, as multiple components,
repetition, infinite repetitive action, cycle, progression and “contained” – as finite,
restrained. For example: assembling/disassembling multiple components could
contain, restrict/reveal, expose…etc.
Consider which specific techniques, materials and formats will be most
appropriate for your piece and have a potential to strengthen your subject.
