Using your own ideas and inspirations you will develop a motif that will become the basis of your very own Designer Collection. Once created, you will modify your design motif to create a "line" of coordinating pieces, such as earrings, necklaces, bracelets, or whatever your imagination can dream-up! Using wax, clay and paper techniques, you will create a model of your motif used for creating jewelry molds. Two of your pieces will actually be cast for your portfolio.
