Development of modern jewelry using paper clay ceramic
MetadataShow full item record
The research aimed to analyze jewelry in various forms, such as necklaces, bracelets, rings and earrings, as well as to apply knowledge to develop jewelry with stamping techniques by using metals, silver and synthetic gemstones. The data of the research was obtained from the interview, the analysis of jewelry forms for producing an jewelry prototype and the satisfactory evaluation. The results of the research were that the most of modern jewelry had natural shapes. However, they had few manmade patterns. The patterns mostly came from the colors of the gemstones. Silver was used as a material of the whole jewelry ring. As work creativity, it was found that most modern jewelry production was based on wax mold, prototype molding, rubber mold press, wax injection, molding, finishing, plating, and stone decoration. The result of the research brought to the design for developing better jewelry forms. The process of the design consisted of studying design theories, and creating various jewelry forms. As the evaluation by the experts, the design with natural shapes obtained the highest rate of evaluation (the second form). The second highest one was the seventh form, which was the contemporary jewelry with beautiful gemstones. This one was suitable for jewelry prototype production with stamping techniques by using paper clay ceramic for satisfactory evaluation, the consumers were satisfied with the jewelry made of paper clay ceramic with the rates of much and the most. This was consistent with the research hypothesis, i.e. to obtain modern forms of jewelry made of paper clay ceramic, which were used as a guideline for creating and developing modern jewelry forms according to the customer’s needs and for developing materials for innovation, which could reduce production cost and time of the manufacturers.
