"TWO SIDES - ONE STORY 

- pin mechanisms & brooch back design"

5 - 9 September 2018

Led by Brooch expert Daniela Malev, author of the definitive guide to brooch pin design, "To The Point - Pin Mechanisms and Brooch Back Design."

 

In this Masterclass, Daniela will lead you through an array of innovative pin solutions which form an integral part of the overall brooch design.
 

Daniela Malev is a jeweller and teacher. Trained as a goldsmith in her hometown Dresden, Germany, she also holds a Master Craftman ́s Certificate for Gold- and Silversmithing and studied Jewellery Design at Staatliche Zeichenakademie Hanau. She concluded her formal studies with a BA and MFA degree in Gemstone and Jewellery Design at the University of Applied Sciences Trier/Idar-Oberstein, Germany.

This Masterclass will initiate and encourage a conscious approach to the design of the brooch back and its mechanisms. You will be introduced to a variety of brooch back mechanisms and learn how to realize them technically. Daniela will guide you through various exercises on different needle techniques and ways of thinking about what a needle can be and how it can be solved. You will learn and understand, that the brooch back mechanism should be thought of, and integrated, during the whole creative process of a brooch.
