MA Jewellery

Ring by Andreea Bogdan

The MA show includes the work of postgraduate students on our MA Jewellery course. It is an intensive taught course that helps design professionals and graduates to deepen skills and experience within the jewellery industry through the support of leading international contemporary designers and academics. The School has the widest range of specialist facilities in Europe for silversmithing and jewellery and using these, the course aims to foster advanced practical and creative design skills relevant to jewellery design and production. Students are encouraged to develop an individual design philosophy to sustain a portfolio of design practice; and to evaluate the local and global language of jewellery and fashion design and consider ways of engaging new audience and product opportunities. The work on display in the show, and here on the website illustrate this approach.

MA Jewellery has been tailor-made to practice contemporary scenarios. It course offers students a laboratory environment, where exploration can take place in state of the art digital and traditional facilities. Issues of sustainability and social responsibilities in design are explored together within the territory of new industrial opportunities. We emphasise the notion of collaboration across design disciplines leading to a personal innovation of thought and design language. The basic assumption is that value resides in cross-disciplinary collaboration associated with the understanding and exploration of contemporary design process. This area is a fertile ground for innovation and many of our alumni have established their own practices and work collaboratively across the art and design sector worldwide.
