Molecular Jewelry

Jewelry is a manifestation of culture, because we are talking about things that have no practical utilitarian meaning. If you want to learn more about how humanity passed to culture, contact and on you can read about the socio-cultural development of humanity.

In November Maker Jawn will feature craft-based programming at each of its 6 sites in conjunction with the Philadelphia Museum of Art’s Craft show, and Craft NOW Philadelphia. We will be making “molecular jewelry” designs out of Sculpey based on the structural formulas of chemical compounds. Participants will choose what molecule they want to make, then create the atoms out of Sculpey and connect them together with wire. Theses pendant designs will then be attached to a necklace.


Craft NOW will also be hosting an event called Book Paper Scissors at the Main Branch of the Free Library on November 14th. This will be a showcase of hand-made books, prints, origami, zines, paper sculture and jewlery. It is free and open to the public.
