Designing With Dies
A Necklace Takes Shape

a digital MasterClass DEMO
by Dan Cormier & Tracy Holmes

A companion to Relief Beyond Belief: Silhouette Dieforming in Polymer Clay, the debut volume in The Cutting Edge MasterClass Library.

Relief Beyond Belief shows how to Make a Bead using Cutting Edge Die Sets. This 26-page full-colour digital Demo book goes beyond to explore necklace design using the Die Set cut-outs.

What's in the book...

• Design Tools

a visual tool tableau and list of all the tools used in the Demo

• Make a Necklace
a step-by-step re-telling of how 12 cut-outs from two Die Sets were used to design the Relief Beyond Belief MasterClass Necklace, from choosing and arranging the shapes, planning the patterns and palette, to completing the necklace as a signed and wearable object

• Elements of Design
using one necklace as a reference point, shape, size, rhythm, balance, colour, and pattern are discussed, and other Circle+Stamen necklace design options are explored through more than 50 high resolution step-outs, sketches, and design diagrams

Discover a hands-on approach to design, and learn how to use Die Set cut-outs as 'actual size' tools to explore, plan, and produce necklaces, bracelets, earrings, and other flats and forms in polymer clay.
