Fashion Jewellery Arts

Thread and wire fashion jewellery techniques offer jewellery makers an extremely wide variety of durable and beautiful techniques for the creation of fine jewellery. This programme begins by covering materials and tools and then quickly allows for students to begin planning and creating necklaces, bracelets, earrings and more.

Professional thread and wire techniques have long been used to create a broad range of jewellery by fine jewellers; high value cultured pearls, for example are assembled using specially developed traditional techniques and materials. In today’s burgeoning market for fashion jewellery many of these established techniques have been supplanted by craft methods used for temporary designs or costume jewellery.

The JDMIS prides itself in providing established skills, expert advice on production, speed, quality and comprehensive information about material choices and qualities to ensure its designers produce superior, lasting jewellery regardless of the value of the component materials designers choose.
