  • Hayley Irving

Jewellery & Metal Design Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art and Design University Dundee Scotland by immersing our students in cutting edge technology as much as traditional skills, we help them to challenge convention and develop their own vision of what a designer can be. They address contemporary issues linked to materials, sustainability and the emerging dichotomy between the digital and the handmade. Jewellery & Metal Design is about much more than aesthetics. While these collections may well be beautiful, they are also the result of extensive research and deep reflection on contemporary issues such as travel and adventure, personal identity, political and spiritual beliefs, mental health and wellbeing, and the natural and the built environment. Our graduates have produced work in a variety of precious and non-precious materials. We also include all aspect of CAD, and wearable electronics where more experimental pieces can be created, our graduates work in varied careers. They work as artists and designers. They can be found in management, education, or in specialist posts within museums and galleries. Wherever they are and whatever they do, they display the versatility and innovation that are characteristic of a true designer. Teena Ramsay Programme Director
