Jewellery Making with Roxanna Moznabi - 30th July 2023
Make your own Pendant.
Making jewellery with meaning is so important to Roxanna. Persian culture and all the beautiful ancient history has strongly influenced her work. She believes jewellery tells a story, holds memories and gets passed down generations so how could it not be something sacred.
Talismans have been used in many civilizations throughout history, with connections to astrological, scientific, and religious practices. A Talisman is an object, most commonly a piece of jewellery in many cultures. It's believed to have religious or spiritual blessings, intended as a form of personal protection, to heal, aid in fertility, to keep disease and any other danger away, it can also be worn as a good luck charm.
Join Roxanna for a wax carving workshop creating your own Talisman pendant, either for yourself or someone you love. During the workshop she will guide you through all the hand carving techniques, experimenting with different wax carving tools. You will be provided with mood-boards for inspiration, which you will receive in an email in advance of the workshop. This will allow you to have some time to really think about the design so you can relax, and have fun, and be playful with the wax on the day. Feel free to bring along with you any form of inspiration, such as objects or artwork, you are encouraged to come with range of ideas so you can talk them through with Roxanna.
For an extra £30 charge, there will be an option to have your Talismans cast in sterling silver in the historic Birmingham Jewellery Quarter. Roxanna will clean up your castings and present them on a 20 inch silver chain. They can be sent to your chosen address within a month of the workshop."
