Romero Britto inspired Wooden Jewellery Pieces

Today we will be creating Romero Britto inspired Wooden Jewellery Pieces.

We will be drawing inspiration from Romero Britto. Britto is a Brazillian artist who combines elements of cubism, pop art and graffiti art in his work. Britto uses vibrant colours and bold patterns to express hope, dreams and happiness. We will be using similar bold colours and patterns in the design of our jewellery pieces.

To begin I am going to lay out the shapes for my wooden jewellery pieces to create a necklace and earrings.

Once I have chosen the shapes which I want to use I am going to colour in the base of my jewellery.

Next I will think about the patterns I am going to use. Because I want my jewellery pieces to look like a matching set I am going to use similar shapes, patterns and colours across all of my wooden pieces so that everything matches. My pieces will follow the vibrant colours and bold patterns which Britto uses in his own work.

Once I am happy with the design of my pieces I am going to use jump rings to connect all of the pieces together. To do this I will need small jewellery pliers to assist me in opening and closing my jump rings tightly.

With all the pieces now connected I will add my earring pieces or leather cord to compete my necklace and earrings.
