Course summary

Despite its origins in historical tradition, the world of studio jewellery encourages its practitioners to be innovators and pioneers. Using novel materials and digital technologies, you will work to develop your own voice in an increasingly diverse conversation. Our strong studio culture means that you will be able to share ideas in a supportive environment. You will develop pieces of jewellery and wearable objects by gaining a deep understanding of the design process, from visual research to concept development to finished outcome. Technical skills form the basis of the course, but you will also learn to consider the historical, social, and aesthetic context of your creations through written assignments. We teach traditional jewellery making techniques as well as technologies such as CAD/CAM, microelectronics for wearables, novel materials and 3D printing. Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art & Design’s facilities include a specialist metal and mixed materials workshop, in-house casting facilities, studio spaces, digital resources in a well-equipped Make Space, a wood workshop for both 2D and 3D making, and a foundry - one of only a handful in UK universities. Throughout the course you will have the opportunity to exhibit your work, as well as participate in special projects as they arise within the exciting research environment of DJCAD. Your final year will culminate in an exhibition of your final outcomes as part of the annual Degree Show.
