Experimental Jewellery Design - IED Barcelona

when 1 July 2020 - 31 July 2020
duration 5 weeks
fee EUR 3100

The jewellery object is currently evolving and now no longer has to represent a material value or solely an ornamental value.

Can a piece of jewellery have other functions? It is something that has to adapt itself to the body; it is a clothing accessory; it represents us or represents something that we want to be or want to communicate.

The Experimental Jewellery Design course provides students with a methodology of how to think, how to define, how to represent and how to materialise a new concept in the form of a piece of jewellery. The course employs specialised software to render a piece of jewellery and print it in 3D.
