Personal memorabilia and the theme of moving on in an "ever-changing world," will become the inspiration for the elements in your kinetic necklace. The technical portion of this project is inspired by constantly changing designs in wind kinetics and wind sculpture. We will explore:
• Multiple free moving parts and kinetic motion.
• Purposeful design while creating sub-patterns as the spinners pass one another.
• Flush and Metal Clay tube set gem
• Ball set riveted connections
• Stilt connections
