HS100 - Epic Jewellery and Contemporary Trends
The jewellery creations of the past are presented as inspirational objects/wearable museums full of information about past cultures, materials and techniques. The impact of historical trends on contemporary jewellery is also analysed, showing how past creative trends can inspire the future. Beyond historical influences, students explore medium and short term fashion cycles that affect jewelery and learn how to anticipate coming colour, material and thematic trends.
Students studying jewellery of the past gain insight into how the fabrication limitations and beliefs of the time influenced jewellery design and how similar concepts in today’s fashion and jewellery can be applied. As new fabrication methods, materials and cultural concepts develop, students are encouraged to consider how similar evolutions affected previous eras of jewellery and use this information to produce avant-garde and trend setting designs.
