The Contemporary Jewelry course treats jewelry as a “portable” art. Traditional techniques and approaches are combined with contemporary ones in order to develop a new perspective around jewelry as an expressive means of art. It is related to the body on a conceptual and physical level by using it as inspiration, space and an entity which conveys values and expresses messages. Εach participant has the opportunity to create and express himself/herself through jewelry, give shape to his/her ideas and evolve in the art of Contemporary Jewelry.
The course is addressed to students familiar with the basic silversmithing techniques.
