Intro
The Bachelor of Design at the University of New South Wales in Sydney, Australia offers Contemporary Jewellery as an area of practice in the Object Design disciplinary studio, one of six disciplinary studios in the Integrated Design specialisation. Reflected in the final year graduation projects, students learn to develop an integrated design approach by drawing on technical, experimental and conceptual skills across multiple disciplinary studios.
Object Design students are encouraged to explore contemporary jewellery as an expanded practice by seeking novel methods of adornment, communication and material enquiry. Supported by tutors and technical staff with expertise in design and digital making, students create diverse jewellery outcomes that examine current concerns of our time including the significance of sustainability, social well-being and cultural heritage.

Dr. Zoë Veness. Deputy Head of School (Design)


The Jewellery Studio
One of many professional workshops in the School of Art and Design campus, the studio spaces are light-filled and is a well-equipped workshop and making space where students learn traditional jewellery making techniques fused with contemporary industrial processes to  create wearables and small objects.

The workshops are furnished with industry standard torch bays, fume cabinets, soundproof hammering room and extraction to ensure students work both effectively and safely. Emerging jewellery designers working in the space also benefit from access to the latest technologies such as 3D Printing and laser technology. Students have access to specialised tools and equipment, benches to work on and access to knowledgeable technical staff.
