The last students of the Jewellery & Silversmithing BA degree course at The Cass School of Art, Architecture, and Design launch their Crowdfunder campaign on 14th November 2017 towards exhibiting at the New Designers graduate show in 2018.
With funding unavailable from their university, the students want to ensure their participation in this flagship show for new U.K. design graduates. As a celebration of the end of their degree and the beginning of their journeys as designers/makers, the group has started a campaign to be a part of the annual event, which they hope will kick-start their careers.

They are rewarding donors with over 50 handmade pieces of jewellery, including many one-off designs: slate and crushed gemstone silver cufflinks; a silver and gold Keum Boo pendant and a silver diamond and blue topaz ring, to mention but a few. The students aim to raise £3,500 by Christmas to cover all exhibition costs.

The group invites the public, media and industry to follow them on their social media blogs as they journey through their final year at The Cass.

Our team is a diverse group of individuals whose distinct personalities are strongly expressed through our work, which equally strongly demonstrates our design and making skills, developed in a very creative yet self-directed hub. Participating at New Designers brings important experience which will definitely be useful for each of us in our career paths as jewellers / Dominik Wiecek, 3rd-year Jewellery & Silversmithing, The Cass.

At New Designers, we will showcase our collections to the key professionals of the design world: potential employers, customers, galleries and design industry. / Jemma Whitehouse, 3rd-year Jewellery & Silversmithing, The Cass.
