. For the degree project, themed “Re:mind-Re:wind”, I looked into the fascinating genre of “photo-jewellery”. The goal was to find my own approach, combining Jewellery and Photography. The outcome is a self-portrait in form of a brooch. My portrait is built of different layers that consist of my memories and surroundings, everything that shaped me to become who I am today. The pieces are exchangeable and removable, depending on how much of myself I want to show.. Andrea Seg

The six-term evening college for jewelry design is linking art, crafts and design and thus provides the basis for a flexible vocational orientation in the field of jewelry design. Apart from providing the classical techniques of creating jewelry and working in metal, the emphasis of this college is on professional training of your artistic and creative skills. This training includes artistic and practical courses as well as theoretical subjects such as history of art, theory of contemporary jewelry, design techniques, computer-aided design (CAD) and basic knowledge of business-related economic and legal issues.

The workshops are held in small groups in our studios, providing intensive training and catering for the students’ individual needs. Our team of educators consists of well-known artists and craftspeople as well as professional teachers of theoretical subjects. Classes are held in the evening (18.00 – 22.00) so that also working students can join the courses. High school diploma, A-levels or an examination of professional practice (“Berufsreifeprüfung”) are required for registration. Apart from costs for material and a set of basic tools, there is no tuition fee. The education leads to a diploma.

. The series Precious(less) was inspired by the spiral-like arrangement of leaves found in nature (Phyllotaxis). By combining 3D printed sphere-shaped elements with handcrafted pieces made from traditional materials like gold I intend to explore the artistic potential of digital crafts and their impact on traditional Goldsmithing techniques..

. The three pieces „Corpus Vertebrae“,  „Arcus Vertebrae“ and „Sternum“ are dealing with the topic of vanity and it’s symbolism not only in history but also today. Inspired by the shape of bones, especially vertebrae, and theirmeaning . In jewellery, the pieces address and show uncomfortable truths directly on your body and confront wearer and viewer alike. The materials used are copper, bronze and different textiles. For „Corpus Vertebrae“ a combination of wire cutting and forming by hand was used. „Arcus Vertebrae“ was made from cast bronze pieces and hand knotted textiles and „Sternum“ is chased and braided by hand..
