Liloveve Jewelry School presents ~The Hinged Locket ~
often hold memories - in the form of a photograph, or a lock of hair, a poem, or a drop of perfume. What would yours hold? They have been worn as gifts of love, as remembrance, and as amulets for protection and guidance.
This class explores how to make a locket, and as we construct our own, each person in turn explores what that space means.
Technical studies include the creation of domed forms, scoring for crisp corners, and mechanisms such as single / multiple knuckle hinges and locking clasps.
There will be an emphasis on your artistic interpretation of the project, what you choose your locket to hold and how both will affect and inspire design decisions.
