The summer is finally winding down and my last semester as an undergrad is rapidly approaching. I’m really excited about this upcoming semester, I hope to make some amazing pieces. I have registered myself for three jewelry studios: Senior Studio V, Jewelry Topics: Alternative Materials, and Casting Topics. I am most excited about the Casting Topics class since I’ll be able to utilize the wax carving/modelling I’ve been doing over this summer. In fact, some of the projects I’ve designed and started will likely become part of my course curriculum since I am designing the class based off of what I want to do. The casting topics class will involve me having to create an Etsy site with marketable jewelry, also incorporating gem stones into the casting process. I really enjoy making cast objects, the wax modelling process is so much fun, starting from essentially a brick of wax and creating whatever the heck kind of intricate object I want to make is something which has always appealed to me – making something out of nothing, like a true underdog.
