How to make an orientation appointment

Historical, cultural, and modern jewelry designs, as well as materials you have around you, can serve as inspirations for the bracelet or necklace you design and make for your peer. Research on your own to come up with desired outcomes.

1. Images of Egyptian and Baroque historical jewelry below show how their style and construction have remained a timeless inspiration for the way jewelry is designed and made today.
2. The modern designs below reflect the trends and examples of what can be made as laser cut outcomes. The materials will differ as metal has its limitations as an option with the laser cutter. (The list of materials you can use when laser cutting.)

Egyptian historical bracelets and necklaces for men and women
