Jewellery and Silversmithing is an exciting, practice-based programme whose graduates delight in creating well-made and considered work. Our course philosophy is to explore material and technical innovation with traditional craft techniques and concepts inspired by personal research and design drawing.

This approach is clearly evident across a show that mixes digitally sculpted and fabricated forms for the body or the table, with a diverse range of materials, including: machine turned plastics, dyed acrylic, hand-forged steel and raised silver, magnetised coloured resin, and a range of stone-set, etchedor enameled jewellery or metalwork.
Our graduates quickly establish  themselves as emerging designer-makers through events like New Designers London, at which the department has won the prestigious New Designers Goldsmiths Company Award for Jewellery for the past two consecutive years, and a range of other international exhibitions and industry showcases that regularly feature large numbers of our alumni, such as the national Dazzle exhibitions and the Goldsmiths Fair in London.

We are also proud that so many find themselves, in the future, either back working in education as teachers, or studying for taught or research Masters. Our traditional links with industry have been further strengthened this year with two of our third year BA students selected for internships in the Edinburgh jewellery and silversmithing workshops of Hamilton and Inches, who then generously support them as scholars in their final year of study. All the staff that have taught and worked with these graduates join me in wishing them every success with their future bright careers.
