Jewelry design, how I work

anna sitter och jobbar med en spindel

When designingand making jewelry I usually sculpt in a clay that shrinks when firing, this way I get better details in small pieces. I start sculpting by forming the clay roughly to it’s shape with my fingers, after drying I carve the details with a scalpel. By using molds and clay that shrinks I make my sculptures in different sizes so that I can offer them as pendants, rings, earrings…  To duplicate them I use molds, but details get lost in molds so I reshape and carve every item by hand before firing and finishing.
