dc.description.abstract The Primary objectives of this creative project were the exploration of well-known fairy tales (such as Snow White), and the process of creating interactive jewelry based on my own personal interpretation of these stories. I designed and constructed seven jewelry pieces using traditional metal working techniques along with innovative contemporary surface treatments such as etching, sandblasting and colored pencil decoration. Each piece contained a "surprise" interactive element - some pieces contain moving parts, while others contain small pieces of fabric tape on which sentences are written. These tapes are mechanized to wind up into the ring or pendant.This body of work required a variety of metalsmithing techniques including complex constructions, copper forming, casting, lathe turning, and stone setting.
