The jewellery industry in Singapore is a “hidden gem” because it allows the combination of artistic creation with flexible and sometimes lucrative paths in professional careers, entrepreneurship or part-time employment.
Reasons to Consider a career as a Jewellery Designer and Artist:
1.Autonomy and meaningful work
Working to provide lasting jewellery to celebrate clients' happiness and special occassions, designers are also often multi-disciplinary and highly valued in their organisations for their ability to engage customers and convert sales.
2. A 3-Billion Dollar Industry
The value of Singapore's jewellery industry in 2019 is 3 billion dollars, the third largest contributor to Retail GDP higher than Fashion and electronics!
3. Beginner Friendly
Even if you have never taken art classes or think you can't draw, it doesn't mean that you won't be able to design jewellery. Just like any other skill, jewellery design is a technical skill that you can be taught and trained in.
Kickstart Your Design Journey with Hand-drawing or Digital Design
Classical Design: Develop expert jewellery design sketching & draughting skills. Learn creative variation with tracing techniques, importance of major forms in jewellery, drawing of gems, common jewellery components & findings. Includes all tools & materials.
Digital Design: Adopt industry-standard digital modelling tool Gemvision Matrix to create a wide range of fine jewellery with highly accurate gemstone settings, measurements and weights. Produce photo-realistic renderings as images for customers or portfolios.
Modular pathway with plenty of room for growth!
