Intro
The Jewelry Design & Goldsmithing department of Sint Lucas Antwerpen approaches jewelry from the perspective of the relation between the individual and the object. Jewels are not only worn for their decorative qualities but also express how people give shape to their lives. A jewel can function as a social sign, as an expression of human vanity, as a repository of personal memories, or as an artistic means for the maker.
The department pays close attention to jewelry’s underlying purposes and explores its characteristics. By explicitly relating the discipline to social sciences like sociology, theology, material anthropology, or ‘design cultures’, students learn how to establish connections between jewelry and current trends in science, economics, culture, and society.
 
A complex and fast-changing world needs people that can handle creative processes. To be able to meet this complexity, it is necessary to be independent, to formulate your own positions, and to remain true to yourself. The department is aware of this reality and that is why it focuses primarily on the development of the students’ identity. We not only impart an attitude of responsibility and an investigative mindset to students, but we also teach them to trust their instincts.

For students to be able to respond appropriately to the issues of our times, the department will confront them with the various facets of the discipline in its entirety. The curriculum is intentionally thematic: a team of permanent lecturers determines the content and organization of the curriculum. Several guest lecturers are also involved in each project, whether practitioners or theorists. Through discussion and dialogue, these lecturers stimulate the students’ learning process; they teach them how to connect theory and practice, whereby students literally ‘grasp’ the theory hands-on.
 
Each project starts out from a specific context. That can be a target group or a social phenomenon, a collaboration with companies or interaction with other disciplines, or it can proceed from the functional or inherent aspects of jewels. Knowledge of jewelry archetypes such as the locket or the wedding band is highly valued. Students learn to respond to these jewelry archetypes in a contemporary way.

Acquiring new techniques and handling different materials are also part of the project. Technique and material are indissolubly linked to image and content. In this way students also explore technical aspects from the perspective of content and learn how to generate ideas and how to realize them in a short time.

Students carefully document important stages in the work process by making use of various media such as photography and film. The presentation and documentation of works are developed at length in the conclusion of the project.
 
Thanks to this thematic methodology, students very naturally link their own design process to different work methods and research strategies. It ultimately involves a ‘total experience’ composed of both reflection and intuition. The training imparts different frameworks, but the student is free to choose. An academic training implies that students find their own criteria and can work independently. This helps develop an open attitude thanks to which graduates can work with others and find their own way in the world.
