Jewellery Design 1: An Introduction
0.50 Credit(s)
Design students will study the making and conception of jewellery for the marketplace from the perspective of the studio designer/maker. Critical and ethical issues such as emerging technologies, sustainable design and alternative materials will be discussed. Concept development of each project through observational sketching, rendering and modelmaking encourages the student to reassess their concept of jewellery, the body as the site and jewellery production. Fundamental skills of jewellery assembly such as fabrication and casting will be covered through a series of projects focused on the concept of jewellery as a product.
