Glass Jewellery


This week I have experimented with combining glass and copper (via electro-forming) to make small sculptures and jewellery pieces. I have looked into different ways of joining the two materials, such as encasing a glass bead in copper and constructing wire sculptures/forms around pate de verre.

I am particularly impressed with some of the wire sculptures I have produced, as well as the wire loops wrapped around glass. Hopefully, during the next few weeks, I intend to combine these two techniques and develop my designs, considering these materials as particular jewellery pieces or as small scale sculptures, focusing on the concept of glass as a precious material and visually translating this.
