Metalwork and Jewelry Nature Inspired Set Lesson Focus: This lesson will focus on inspiration and derivative when you create a two piece set using landscape and nature as an inspiration. Procedure: Think about nature. What types of things are in nature? Landscapes, animals, greenery, etc. What are some things that interest you? List a few things that you find interesting about nature. Choose one and decide how you are going to show this in jewelry. You can do something literal- like a leaf, or something that is abstract and touches on an aspect of nature. Decide what you are going to create for the two piece set- bracelet? Ring? Pendent? Earrings? Pin? Create sketches for each of these pieces. You may use any combination of metal and any combination of techniques that you have learned in class this marking period. Once you have your sketches, create a mock-up for each piece. Once I have seen your idea, you may begin. Remember: Inspired by some aspect of nature. Choose the color to go with the design. Two-piece set. Professionally finished piece of jewelry- cut, filed, sanded, polished, soldered connected well!
