Beginning student jeweler, have my own slowly developing studio and love fabrication- it makes me happy!I have a fondness for sea shells, particularly NICE sea shells. I hunger for on "How-to" do various techniques and sadly, I find that the plethora of books I have purchased from the usual fabulous jewelry artists are a bit redundant in listing techniques and I somehow always seem to need to know the exact thing that NO ONE has included in their book. I am especially interested in learning unusual setting techniques (a la John Cogswell, "Creative Stonesetting", the BEST book of them all).
I note your interest in incorporating shells into you jewellery
expression. This is a particular obsession of mine as well. In
particular I have incorporated shells in my work by making RTV
moulds and then casting from injected waxes.
I have attached some photos of my work for your interest.
All the best
