Brief number 1: Origami with metal

The brief title is actually 3D Forming!

Here's the first bit: By exploring the various techniques of metal forming you will create a piece of jewellery with a 3D form. You might want to use planishing, chasing, repousse, fold forming, hammering and the rolling mill in order to form your metal...

So, I'll be doing a bit of web searching to find designers using these forming techniques - three of the websites will appear in a future Inspiration post. I'll also look for examples of pieces with a Mobius strip, as I'd like to have a go at including one in my own work.
