Doel Reed Center Jewelry Class, Taos New Mexico - Summer 2019

In July 2019, OSU 3D and Metals and Jewelry Design Professor Chris Ramsay led a class of 8 OSU students in a jewelry making course at the Doel Reed Center in Taos, New Mexico. Student participants included: Jenna Corso, Megan Crow, Whitney Hampton, Anna Humes, Jordan Morris, Cheyenne Morgan, Cara Rice, and Madison Young. 

 

The two-week jewelry making course required no previous jewelry making experience and students were encouraged to created unique one-of-a-kind jewelry with a distinctly southwestern aesthetic in silver based upon field trips to museums and historical research sites in Taos and Santa Fe. Traditional metalworking techniques observed in the museums/galleries (including tufa casting and repoussé conch forms) were explored while learning to silver solder, set stones in both prong and bezel settings, and develop other foundational metalworking skills.

Please take a look at the wonderful work that these students created !!!!
