Jasmin Giles (UK) textile & wax jewelry

découverte au BIAD Birmingham Graduate show 2011, re-découverte récemment sur une vidéo, ses créations « giant & bold » m’enchantent toujours !

« I make large-scale jewellery pieces, combining knitted textiles and materials such as wax and glass. The pieces represent contemporary jewellery alternatives. »

« Jasmin graduated from Chelsea College of Art last year (2010) with a first class honours degree in Textiles… Her entire degree show sold out and she is now a recipient of the Crafts Council Hothouse programme as well as working freelance from her studio in Clapham.
Jasmin told me that each piece is unique and is a labour of love- she sees her work as wearable art. Not only does she create each put together the piece, but she also creates the constituent parts. She starts off by dying the woven threads that make up the foundation of her Spring/Summer collection (top) and works hot wax into delicate (and remarkably regular) droplets.
Her work is rich, dramatic, heavy. It is bold and intelligent. I imagine it being worn as a patterned statement against a pallete of greys and blacks. I wonder who would wear it- and where? Well I would. I would wear it somewhere spectacular, where it could be seen, admired and whispered about. She talks of being interested in how the wearer is transformed by jewellery- for the AW collection, the sea is an image that I can’t rid myself of when I look at her work- I see heavy seaweed, kelp, dark nights and deep depths- perhaps that is the thing about her work; it transforms the imagination of the wearer and the viewer. » (PatternLondon, sept.2011)

BIAD Final year exhibition – Birmingham, UK – 13-18 Juin 2011

BIAD Graduate show 2011

What is Jewellery Now ?

Jewellery created from sumptuous clusters of polystyrene balls, architectonic vessels that house upside down plants, eating devices that prevent you from eating?!

Prepare to be amazed at the possibilities of Jewellery and Silversmithing, as 29 final year students on the BA Jewellery and Silversmithing degree course showcase their fantastic work at the world famous School of Jewellery, Vittoria Street, Birmingham (BIAD). The show kicks off on Monday 13th June and continues until Saturday 18th June, with an exclusive Industry Evening event on Tuesday 14th June from 17:00, with guest speaker Peter Taylor- the director of technology and training at Goldsmiths’ Company.
As the culmination of 3 years hard work, the graduating students will exhibit their final collections- each presenting a unique body of work in preparation for the launch of their careers in the world of Jewellery and Silversmithing. The range of work on display will show a variety of approaches, with some designers opting to display excellence in traditional craftsmanship, whilst others work to push the boundaries of what jewellery and silversmithing can be. 4 students have already been awarded prizes by the prestigious Goldsmiths’ Company, while one student, Samantha Hesford was featured in the latest edition of the national publication Crafts magazine. These students are destined for success! The 29 BA students will exhibit their work alongside other graduating classes from the school, which specialise in the use of new technologies in jewellery, exquisite hand making skills in precious metals, Horology and Gemmology. There will definitely be something for everyone to enjoy and delight in!

Sally Collins, a lecturer on the BA course at the school, had this to say about the show- ‘This year’s exhibition promises to be full of innovative, exciting and beautifully crafted pieces that will really demonstrate the students working at the forefront of the discipline. New materials, new functions, new forms, new concepts- a show you’ll be sorry to miss!’
Sarah Jones

Following on from the show at the School of Jewellery, a selection of the students will be exhibiting their work at the world renowned

‘New Designers’ exhibition, which takes place at the Business Design Centre in Islington, London from  30th June- 2nd July.
