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.
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
