Be part of a four-day short course that takes you on a journey of jewellery design from the creation of embryonic idea to a presentative image.

This intensive short course will introduce you to the skills to turn your ideas into jewellery design. Led by freelance multi award-winning designer of jewellery and objet d’art, Jennifer Bloy FRSA FIPG, you will be introduced to the concepts of jewellery design, from creating to-scale technical drawings to full-colour presentation drawings for display purposes, and some of the processes needed along the way. 

With limited spaces, it offers you the chance to get individual guidance suited to your needs. 

What will I learn?

  • Gain the confidence to put your ideas onto paper
  • Learn how to communicate both verbally and through drawing for and in front of clients
  • Experiment with the 2D presentation process through painting to a finished image  

What do I need to bring with me?

The Goldsmiths’ Centre provides all materials needed for the course, but you are welcome to bring your own materials with which to experiment on each day.

Who is this course designed for?

  • Beginners: No practical experience or understanding of the listed skill required 

This course is suitable for anyone who wants to develop their drawing skills and to understand the jewellery design process.
