The show takes place between Monday 10th June until Saturday 15th June, a special Industry Evening is taking place on Tuesday 11th June at the historic Vittoria street campus in the Jewellery Quarter.

From minutely detailed structural forms, striking catwalk pieces, contemporary innovative twists on traditional techniques and unique functional objects to impressive materials you have never seen before…The Birmingham School of Jewellery Graduate Show is a hub of unparalleled design.

Whilst studying at the School the students are taught to challenge the perceptions of the discipline through the use of traditional techniques, with some members of the class already receiving acclaim from notable institutions the pace is set for what is to come. “A fresh approach coupled with infectious enthusiasm for contemporary jewellery sets these students apart.” says Zoe Robertson, award winning Jeweller and BA Course Director at the School. “Our Graduate Show promises to be an explosion of visual delights that explore the breadth of craftsmanship, technology, materials and conceptual thinking. We look forward to seeing you!”

All are welcome to come and see a culmination of three years hard work resulting in outstanding craftsmanship on display at the Graduate Show. A handpicked selection of students will be exhibiting at New Designers in London at the Business Design Centre from 26th June to 29th June 2013. All pieces on display will be for sale and commissions will be happily accepted.

Show Times: 10th-15th June 10.00-4.30, Industry Evening 11th June 5.00-8.00.
