XS Jewellery / Bachelor in Product and Industrial Design.

Whether it be jewellery, dessous or hearing aids, whether intimate or performative, «XS Jewellery» students devise contemporary designs and develop artistic concepts – from people for people – bodily-felt, physical and very real. The Bachelor Degree programme «XS Jewellery» materialises emotions and taboos, reflects on traditions and formulates new conventions. A practical «hands-on approach», both in terms of manual and digital skills, is more important than ever before, representing a conscious attitude in dealing with materiality and resources. «XS» is performance, «Jewellery» is culture in motion.

Pauline Müller. Body piece: Indolore 01-04, 2020. Metal, pearls. Photo by: Pauline Müller. From series: Doux Leurre. Statement: Ephemeral and flamboyant facial metamorphosis. The facial jewellery collection “Doux Leurre” by Pauline Müller promises intensive bodily and visual experiences for the wearer and viewer alike. Whoever engages with this facial metamorphosis, even for a short time, experiences their altered appearance with force and skin-felt vividness. With this work Pauline undertakes a playful yet critical exploration of the (mostly not pain-free) practices of body or facial modification to which individuals from all cultures have eternally been emotionally drawn. With yourself as the model, experience how fluid the boundaries between eccentricity and absurdity can be!. Pauline Müller

Megan Kelso. Bra: Single Torpedo Cup 80B, 2020. Silk, laminate, elast . Photo by: Megan Kelso. From series: Dessus et Dessous. Statement: This collection is aimed at women suffering from breast cancer. From one day to the next women can be confronted with the loss of an identity-defining part, triggering profound questions about their own infirmity and femininity. As Megan Kelso explains, aesthetically attractive over and undergarments reinforce body positivity. As a trained dressmaker, she understands the female body, and as a jewellery maker, the power of bodily-worn objects. Here she has created a set of designs that are suitable for everyday and extravagant wearing, celebrating her collection as the recognition of a creative and self-assured approach towards ones own body image. .

Sophie Mia Willener. Body piece: Modula descenda, 2020. Cast bronze, brass, 3D print . Photo by: Sophie Mia Willener. From series: Do you see me hearing you?. Statement: From hearing aid to statement piece. Hearing aids nowadays are designed by the industry to be as discreet as possible, and as a result have become barely noticeable. In this product study Sophie Mia Willener designs «visually loud» hearing aids, with the aim of making them more conspicuous and to endow them with their own formal autonomy.  The products she aestheticises are formally derived from 19th-century ear trumpets, revitalising them as eye-catchers and proud accessories. Using various add-ons, the hearing aid becomes an item of listening jewellery for the self-assured wearer. . Sophie Mia Willener

Yasmin Knüsel. Piece: A Fox, 2019. Mixed materials. Photo by: Yasmin Knüsel. From series: A Fox - a confrontation. Statement: A Fox. a confrontation. In Switzerland, up to 30,000 foxes are either slain or fall victim to traffic every year. Most of the animals are disposed of, unused, at carcass collection points. In this work, the fox acts as the point of departure for the development of jewellery pieces, their individual values signalling more than just the process of their creation and the worth of the material, and thus constituting a statement about the personal awareness of the author herself.  .

Salome Bruggisser. Ring: Momentum, 2019. Wax, ice-cream, silver . Photo by: Salome Bruggisser. From series: Momentum – Process & Participation in Jewellery Design. Statement: Momentum – process & participation in jewellery design. Momentum (Latin for impulse, moment) explores the potential of participatory aspects in the design of oneoff items and serial jewellery work. The customers are specifically integrated into the physical evolution process of their one-of-a-kind pieces. Thanks to the playful interaction, unique moments are literally suspended, and the resulting rings fit the hands of their wearers like a glove. Partaking in this remarkable process intensifies the personal and thereby permanent relationship to the individual items of jewellery. Momentum is uniqueness in serial form. . Salome Bruggisser

Jennifer Papatzikakis. Neckpieces: Bittersweet, 2019. Olive wood, incent, gold, stone . Photo by: Jennifer Papatzikakis. From series: Bittersweet longing. Statement: BITTERSÜSS ΛΑΧΤΆΡΑ. Bittersweet longing. Longing (in Greek λαχτάρα) can be a wonderful, an inspiring feeling. If the desire works itself up to an extreme, however, then longing becomes unbearable, ponderous, a bittersweet burden. My project deals with this emotional ambivalence. Material, weight, form, wearability and smells play a central role in these works, conceived as chains. Feelings become tactilely experienceable, perceptible, graspable, which enables me to consciously celebrate this range of emotions. . Jennifer Papatzikakis

Klaudija Oroshi. Piece: Things & Me, 2019. Brass, silver. Photo by: Klaudija Oroshi. From series: Things & Me – From Surveying the Everyday to Jewellery. Objects & pendants​
. 
. Statement: From surveying the everyday to jewellery. Personal affinities find their owners in the items of the everyday household – in furnishings, cutlery and souvenirs. The individual feeling for form and materials is condensed in them, but the immaterial value of what have become familiar rituals also visibly manifests itself in them. This is where I chose to situate my design stimulus. In the jewellery series THINGS & ME I examine aesthetic constellations and preferences, and search for content in intermediate spaces and surfaces. As a trained architect, I survey the space between person and object with my own methods and tools. This generates personal works that explore the relationships with our materials.

Melanie Burkhard. Piece: Objects as timeless promises, 2019. Silver, perspex, pearls, stone. Photo by: Melanie Burkhard. From series: Objects as timeless promises. Pendants & rings 
. 
. Statement: Objects as timeless promises. People love to attribute special powers, properties and meanings to objects. In this way, things become the guardians of tales, truths and promises – as in every fairy story. Even in times of scientifically-based detachment and fake news, people still wish for happiness, health, beauty, love, admiration, infallibility, eternal life. Each of the pieces of jewellery presented is accompanied by a text that suggests a deal, a contract or an agreement, but that on second glance has a drawback and whose consequences are not immediately foreseeable. The jewellery objects represent an invitation to contemplate things – at the same time as the corresponding promise beguiles the viewer.. Melanie Burkhard

. Statement: I desire what? This bachelor project visually challenges the normative ideas of desire. The ambivalence in our own feelings or perceptions is mirrored in suggestive objects. Insights about bodily identity and normative images condense themselves in form and material, whereby reflexions on the gender debate flow permanently into the design process as sub-topics. The function and wearability of the objects are shaped by intimate fantasies.. Chiara Davanzo

Mo-Anna Müller. Installation: Jewellery improvisations, 2019. performance, video, jewellery, sound. Photo by: Mo-Anna Müller. From series: Jewellery improvisations. Statement: Mo-MENTE 19/01. Jewellery improvisations. For me, jewellery improvisations are a mode of self-presentation and self-discovery. They cultivate a sense of identity. Spontaneously, and improvised using simple means, I wear, experience and stage jewellery on my body. In so doing I am completely at one with the moment, entering into a reciprocal and provocative dialogue with my surroundings and my physicality. I experiment with my surroundings; explore and show various facets of my personality and lead myself to my own boundaries. In this way, jewellery becomes an artistic and personal form of expression that allows momentary snapshots and images of moods to emerge: jewellery in motion – my play with attitude. Mo-Anna Müller
