Fashion Jewellery for 16 to 18 Year Olds

Central Saint Martins
Taught by
Helmert Robbertsen


Fashion Jewellery for the catwalk isn’t safe or predictable. It creates spectacle and impact, wowing the viewers and complementing a designer’s clothes collections.

During this course you will design and create a collection of catwalk jewellery pieces in response to fashion forecasts. You will learn to research and understand fashion trend predictions and how to use this knowledge to design three-dimensional jewellery pieces. These will explore form, colour and context to enhance a catwalk performance or magazine editorial.

You will be expected to demonstrate an awareness of innovation, originality of ideas and an interest in hands-on making. All of which are vital components of a successful portfolio for application to further study in all fields of art and design.
During the course advice will be given on the presentation of your ideas in your portfolio and what you should expect from further study and career options.

By the end of this course you will:
•    Have designed and made a wearable neck and a head piece.
•    Understand how to research for inspiration and how fashion forecasts can be translated into ideas for catwalk jewellery
•    Have professional looking photographs of your pieces for inclusion in your portfolio
•    Leave with an understanding of high fashion jewellery designed for catwalk and editorials

This course is suitable for anyone aged 16 to 18 with an interest in jewellery and particularly relevant for those who want to build their portfolio for application to art college.
