Six Positions - MIT jewellery student exhibition 18 June - 8 July 2017

Contemporary jewellery is an ideas driven practice with an open attitude to materials and methods. The aim of this MIT course is to enable students to successfully resolve contemporary jewellery works using ideas as starting points.

‘Six Positions’

A story of murder mystery and deceit…..

Exploring outer space through containing objects

Reflective jewellery spaces that create viewer/wearer conversation

Exploring the urge to decorate the found and the banal; adding and changing meaning through refunctioning as jewellery

Confusing attraction for ornamental object

Collecting, combining, crafting, lumping, surprise combinations! - tactility, colours, textures

These are the positions adopted by six MIT Year 2 students; their responses to an eight week contemporary jewellery brief in which they are asked to present a resolved contemporary jewellery work or works from self initiated ideas
