Zara's project had a Japanese inspired theme. She learned to saw, solder, sand and polish sterling silver as well as making a smaller setting using art clay silver. She then embedded her original drawings in resin setting them into the pieces she had constructed. In the second picture she is carefully bringing small bubbles out of the resin. The pieces in the box are are charm, pendant and brooch taped in so that she could take them home safely. During the design development process she had also cut out one of the drawings in copper sheet and done some enamelling. It has been lovely to watch her confidence grow as she has learned.
