A mix of materials and styles compose the body of work of the MA Contemporary Jewellery students whose is developed around themes such as heritage, brutalism, nostalgia and obsession.


Four artists are gathering to present their Major projects based in different concepts around their experiences and studies.

Myrman - is an Icelandic artist whose work was focused in painting the magical but frightening nature of the northern country. As part of his heritage, he has translated his painting methodology into jewellery to express the power of nature and man. |

Jojo - is a Chinese contemporary designer who highlights for the beautiful simplicity but, at the same time, complexity of her work. She builds structural pieces to explain China's development memories of the buildings where she and her family lived in her childhood comparing how people live in the present and how people lived in the past. |

Davina - is an English contemporary jewellery designer whose work explores the use of acrylic, silver and gems to develop fine jewellery pieces. Despite that, she explores brutalism by extracting pieces of buildings and enhances them to precious wearable jewellery pieces. 

Helena - is a Spanish artist who performs around the body and the quality of materials using a variety of these to express concrete feelings and emotions. Her work is based around the state of obsession and its multiple versions, becoming her process an act of obsession itself. |
