Most of us have the perception that great art can only be created by mastering intricate and complicated procedures.However when you listen and learn from really creative people very often you will find the most effective touches are added using straightforward and uncomplicated techniques.
Master teacher Jayne Persico uses a simple technique called Notch and Fire Polish to add dramatic designs to her jewelry creations.
Jayne uses a diamond wiresaw to cut notches and scroll work into her glass jewelry blanks. Then she fire polishes these scroll-notches allowing them to take on a lace-like appearance. The effect is beautiful on its own but the addition of wire wrapping and glass beads will take the work to a whole new level of sophistication.
Discover how you can create masterworks like these in Jaynes jewelry book Innovative Adornments.
