Pin mechanisms and brooch back design

3-day Workshop with Daniela Malev

October 1-3 2021

Duration : 24 hours

In the field of contemporary jewelry the brooch is a very common and also much discussed form of jewelry. One of the special challenges of making a good brooch is to find an adequate solution for the pin which connects the piece securely to the body but goes beyond being a mere functional and invisible part of the backside. It should be an essential part of the brooch in terms of content and aesthetics. Mechanism and attachment of a brooch hold a tremendous potential for the design of a brooch in its entirety and need to be developed with equal importance.

This workshop will initiate and encourage a conscious approach to the design of the brooch back and its mechanisms. The participants are introduced to a variety of pin mechanisms and learn how to realize them technically. They will be guided through exercises on different needle techniques and ways of thinking about what a needle can be and how it can be solved.

But moreover the participant will learn and understand the integration of the brooch back and the pin mechanism into the whole creative process of making a brooch. The workshop teaches technical skills but moreover a new way of thinking: a holistic approach to the brooch.

Her jewellery work is inspired by the belief that diversity arrives from a deep sense of order behind all existence. Her jewellery pieces are made of contrasting materials and complementary elements and aspects which form a unity. Her work is shown in various international exhibitions and presented by Charon Kransen Arts, New York.
Daniela Malev has travelled a lot and likes to gather and exchange ideas and knowledge. She has lived, worked and studied abroad in the USA, Mexico, Italy and Spain.
One of her special fields of interest are brooch backs and pin mechanisms and their integration into the overall design of the brooch. She is convinced that mechanism and attachment of a brooch hold a tremendous potential for the design of a brooch in its entirety and need to be developed with equal importance. She has been invited internationally to give workshops and lectures on this subject. Her workshops initiate and encourage a conscious approach to the design of the brooch back and its mechanisms.The fact that there is a great interest in this field, but hardly any literature, inspired her to publish the book “To The Point – pin mechanisms and brooch back design”.
