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!’
