9  Off the Shelf

Off the Shelf is an exhibition of work by staff and students of Central Saint Martins, BA Jewellery Design course. For a second year running, the designers are delighted to be returning to show at Vitsœ in Munich. The exhibition follows on from a series of projects where staff and students have displayed their work together in a celebration of the diverse and lively approach to contemporary jewellery and objects.
BA Jewellery Design approaches the subject of jewellery as a conversation between body and object, with originality and innovation at its heart. Based in the centre of London, we enjoy superb links with industry and encourage our students to engage with the wider social contexts of their work while developing their own creative practices and a diverse set of technical skills.

Shelf Life shows work by 33 makers, staff and students of Central Saint Martins, BA Jewellery Design course, showing for the first time at Vitsœ in Munich, this is the second project where staff and students display work as equals in a celebration of the diverse and lively approach to contemporary jewellery and objects. Within the breadth of possibilities, the common thread of the course is using materials and objects imaginatively and expressively in response to observations, emotions and situations.

The concept of Shelf Life is apt for this exhibition, in that it is located within the shelves of the Vitsœ showroom, using the relationship between the shelf space and the works placed on them to reflect on issues of temporality and endurance.
To shelve means to put something aside, to discard, to remove from everyday use. In contrast, we use shelves to display, as a way to draw attention to and highlight things of importance. What do we keep on our shelves? How long do we keep them there? How does the shelf life affect the thing produced? What is life like to live on the shelf? What is life beyond the shelf? Are just some of the questions we can ask.
Some of the work displayed has been made in response to projects, some self-motivated, and some in response to the idea of shelves.

The basis we work to is that jewellery is a microcosm through which to explore and express responses to the world. The course values an open-minded approach, experimentation and risk-taking, along with the more traditional skills. And we encourage jewellery design to be explored, questioned and tested out in a number of guises and contexts, with skill and imagination.
Having the chance to show work from novice and veteran practitioners, from either end of a career path, is a valuable one. It demonstrates a continuity of the subject; how ideas are taken up, reworked, tussled with and how new ideas take hold. Shelf Life gives us the opportunity to celebrate the work of staff and students and which reflects some of our diversity and achievements. / Caroline Broadhead, Course Leader of BA Jewellery Design at Central Saint Martins

We are often amazed and charmed by the many different ways individuals and organisations wish to use Vitsœ’s shelves. But then this versatility is not surprising, as the 606 Universal Shelving System was designed to be discreet and to allow the content to speak.
The vibrancy of thinking and experimentation explored by the staff and students of Central Saint Martins, BA Jewellery Design course is both energising and brave. It feels natural for Vitsœ to support, both in the physical and literal sense, as this body of work challenges our thinking of how we use our shelves./ Jennie Moncur, Creative Director at Vitsœ

Central Saint Martins Graduation Show 2015 -  Fan Sze Fiona Li Attachments Combining hardware-store grit and playful eccentricity, Fiona’s work departs from the notion of decorative jewellery for women and instead explores masculine objects of function and practicality. Using braces and snap hooks, her pieces echo masculine construction tools and attire, fashioned in contrasting materials such as dusty pink suede and flashy gold metal. This transforms the concept of unfashionably dull hard labou: Fan Sze Li

EXPO ‘FINDING – Central St Martins BA Jewellery design’ – The Foundling Museum, London (UK) – 14 Nov. 2014 – 30 Janv. 2015

  FINDING CENTRAL SAINT MARTINS BA JEWELLERY DESIGN Finding is a project by eight students and three members of staff of the BA Jewellery Design course at Central Saint Martins with the aim of explore the archives and the museum’s collections of the Foundling Hospital. With this starting point each artist developed a piece that represents the opposite feelings that the collection awoke

The history of the Foundling Hospital is rich and engaging. It is of especial interest to those eager to explore the power of objects to denote an emotional connection. The main aim of this project was to use the collection to initiate creative responses and through this exhibition to contribute to a growing awareness of the Museum’s significance. Eight students and three members of staff of the BA Jewellery Design course at Central Saint Martins have explored the archives and the museum’s collections to develop ideas for a piece of jewellery. Another aim of this extra curricula project was to have a chance for students and staff to work together as equals. In addition, the project included two ‘Tokens of Identity’ workshops, conceived by the jewellery students and delivered to schoolchildren from Maria Fidelis School and Haverstock School, which allowed them the opportunity to impart their findings and enthusiasms to younger learners.
There are many narratives about the Foundling Hospital’s history that are compelling, strong themes of abandonment, regimented living, the lack of intimacy and affection, loss of identity and systems of renaming. The central part of the museum’s collection are the tokens that were left as a lasting, but largely undisclosed, connection of a parent to a child and these are eloquent mementos of their separation. These range from buttons, coins, keys, snippets of ribbon and textiles and even bits of jewellery, all of which could have served to unite a parent and a child long after babyhood. With such a wealth of stories it is impossible not to compare present day attitudes and circumstances to these histories and our discussions have included changes in attitude towards children then and now and how different countries take care of their abandoned children.
Jewellers have a strong awareness of the ability of small, closely held objects to convey the value of a relationship, a locket containing a portrait or lock of hair, a piece that has been gifted or handed down are classic examples. Each participant has produced a piece that expresses both the positive and the negative feelings the collection elicits – of abandonment and belonging, uniformity and individuality, the loss of identity and the chance for a new life.

Inspired by the foundling tokens, I focused on the way marks can express loss and act as distinctive identifiers. I embossed scrap pieces of metal, collected from our school’s jewellery workshop, with quotes from the Foundling Voices interviews with former pupils and made each into an individual piece of jewellery.

As technology has developed, I imagined how this might change in the future; a child might receive their DNA markers at birth, represented by a unique sequence of Emojicons, which would then be traceable.

 Puyuan Yang Piece: X, 2014 Found rubber ball Puyuan Yang Piece: X, 2014 Found rubber ball I thought the cross that substituted a signature on one of the registry documents summed up the lack of clear identity of a foundling and marked the estrangement from their past. I found objects in the street and reworked them into crosses, this one from a rubber ball.

These were the start of a new life, which may have been difficult without the emotional strength to manage this. To reference this, the suitcase and its handle are separate on my necklace.

EXPO ‘Alchemists: New concepts in jewellery’ – New Brewery Arts, Cirencester (UK) – 14 Janv-27 Fevr. 2011

 Alchemists: New concepts in jewellery

Jewellers are not defined by traditional materials and today’s makers are constantly pushing the boundaries of what jewellery can be.
Be it big and bold or pale and subtle, the innovative world of studio jewellery will delight and challenge in equal measure often making us re examine our pre conceptions of what jewellery means.
ALCHEMISTS, the latest jewellery exhibition to be curated at New Brewery Arts, sets out to investigate and present the work of contemporary jewellers who take precious or unexpected materials and transform them into unusual and desirable jewellery.
The notion of using precious and non-precious materials within jewellery is hardly new, but this show seeks to highlight the breadth of approaches and range of materials used by today’s makers when exploring the adornment of the body.
New Brewery Arts is proud to present the work of over 25 artists. Internationally renowned and award winning contemporary jewellers will be exhibiting alongside the fresh talent of new makers just stepping out in their careers.

Jane Adam, Jivan Astfalck, Karen Bartlett, Sally Collins, Jack Cunningham, Anna Gordon, Maria Hanson, Yoko Izawa, Tanvi Kant, Hannah Louise Lamb, Bridie Lander, Alison Macleod, Lindsey Mann, Toni Mayner, Maria Militsi, John Moore, Grainne Morton, Louise Parry, Kathryn Partington, Betty Pepper, Lina Peterson, Jo Pond, Mah Rana, Katherine Richmond, Zoe Robertson, Ruth Tomlinson, Jessica Turrell.
