Inspired by Azza Fahmy

Azza Fahmy was our Artist of the Month for November, her jewellery designs where an inspiration to my students. Studio C100 was soon a little jewellery making factory. Grade 3 took washers and transformed them into beautiful pendents.  Grade 4 used collage techniques and found objects to create broaches. Grade 5 took Azza Fahmy’s advice and looked for inspiration around the school. Using the photos that they took of different patterns, textures and designs around the campus they designed their own jewellery using Shrinky Dinks, beads, glass gems and wire.  Take a look at just a sample of what has been created in the last couple of weeks.

 

Finding Inspiration Everywhere.

Azza Fahmy was our Artist of the Month for November. We found out that she finds her inspiration in the beautiful architecture of old Cairo. My grade five students went looking for inspiration around our school. Check out some of the beautiful jewelry they created using images, patterns and designs they found around the school.

Inspired by Azza Fahmy

Azza Fahmy was our Artist of the Month for November. I have been a huge fan of her jewelry since I lived in Egypt back in the 1990’s. Now I am a huge fan of the beautiful jewelry that my students have created. Grade three made bracelets out of Popsicle sticks and tongue depressors. Grade four used found objects to create necklaces, pins and hair clips. Grade 5 had lots of fun with Shrinky Dinks, beads and wire to create earings, necklaces, and bracelets.
