– Create your jewel… Liberty!
Modernism is an artistic movement that translates a series of figurative codes into various applied arts: the goal of this workshop is to create jewelry using the wire wrapping technique. Wire wrapping is one of the oldest jewelry construction techniques that involves the use and shaping of metal wires, processed cold through the use of jeweler’s pliers. The objective of the workshop will be to identify some Art Nouveau iconographies, making them central to the creation of the jewel that each participant will craft and keep.
