Intro
The best contemporary jewellery combines excellent craftsmanship with strong conceptual and critical thinking. This stimulating course will expand your approach to jewellery practice and challenge you to consider how collaboration and interdisciplinary projects can shape future ways of working and making.
On the Jewellery Futures MA at London based Middlesex University we take a highly practical and critical approach to jewellery that ensures you spend the majority of your postgraduate study researching and making. This combination of in-depth analysis and hands-on experience will enable you to draw on a diverse range of expertise and resources while questioning and developing your practice in a contemporary context for a stimulating and successful career.

Our course features state-of-the-art facilities with dedicated studio space in our £80 million art and design building for each of our MA students to ensure we cater for a diverse range of interests and ambitions. With opportunities to collaborate with students from across the Arts and Creative Industries Faculty, you'll be part of a supportive and interdisciplinary environment of artists who are shaping the future of creative industries worldwide with their award-winning, innovative work.

You will be encouraged to look at jewellery practice as more than an isolated solo activity, considering the anthropological, sociological, economic, political and geographic aspects that influence the field. You will explore how jewellery underpins and enables human sociability, engagement and interaction, and how it comes to impact other disciplines.

You will develop your skills and thinking in the design and development of projects that relate to the body and space. By the end of the course you will have an understanding of the different social and cultural contexts in which jewellery is made, as well as awareness of historical and contemporary styles. You will have the experience and knowledge to forge your own path whether working artistically or commercially within industry.
