Intro
In Perth, Australia, the contemporary jewellery world is having a very difficult time with the lack of tertiary institutions teaching jewellery design and construction. Two of the universities have closed their Fine Arts/Design degrees. I established a teaching studio in late 2012 as there were identifiable gaps in courses that taught contemporary jewellery and silversmithing hand skills (construction) at both beginners and advanced levels.
