Continuing Education . Pre-College Classes 2014 . Pre-College Fashion + Jewelry + Accessories course 

Pre-College Fashion + Jewelry +
Accessories course

Have you ever made your own jewelry? Do you have a favorite thing to wear, an accessory, or some gear that makes you feel good? Jewelry and accessories define us and make statements about our culture— from rings and necklaces, to buckles, bags, and bracelets.

This class will focus on the art and design of things we wear, and the exciting process of working from ideas to finished pieces. We will explore inspirations, history, design, materials, and digital technologies. You will learn to design and make jewelry and accessories in metal, leather, plastics, and a wide range of other options including 3D printing! This class includes visiting artists and designers, a field trip, and plenty of time to make finished work for a final fashion show.

CIA Jewelry graduates have great careers including designing for J Crew, Alexis Bittar, Coach, Vera Wang, Isaac Mizrahi, Tarina Tarantino, Pamela Love, Karen Ko, and more.
