Jewellery Design is an art and like every other form of art, it needs inspiration and techniques to deliver the pieces that can adorn the human body and intensify the appeal of the attire. We at JD Institute of Fashion Technology take our students through a rigorous journey during their Diploma in Fine Jewellery Design and give them the necessary knowledge to enter into the field of design with their creative touch.
Under the efforts of Ms Rupali Sarkar, faculty of Jewellery Design, JD Institute organised a Module End Display of Design Thinking Process and Gemology for the Diploma in Fine Jewellery Design (DFJD) students of July 2021 on 17th February 2022. The two-hour-long event not only left us spellbound with the creativity of the students but also brought immense pride to see the future flagbearers of the JD Institute.
To fabricate jewellery pieces like brooch, necklaces, earrings, rings, bracelets and more, students were briefed to integrate one art movement and an art era together from the art history. They had to do thorough research and with the nuptial of the art movement and art era, they sketched and traced multiple designs, laying out a finely curated jewellery collection for the display.
The jewellery design aspirants with their astute minds created fusion pieces out of clay and passionately worked on the shape and details required to make each piece stand out while keeping the essence of the brief. Every individual displayed their own identity and gave a walkthrough of their design sensibility. The mood board was also presented to understand the idea of the design better. Moreover, students also talked about the method they adopted to create their pieces from the scratch and how they worked around the clock to bring their design to a conclusion.
Each student created a collection that appeared cohesive. The amalgamation of the colours, the use of the materials, the vision behind the design, the inspiration and the presentation was impeccable. There were pieces inspired by the Romanesque era, the Cubism era, the Art decor timeline and more. In a few of the designs, the hint of minimalism was also witnessed. Moreover, for the gemology module, the DFJD July 2021 students sketched their designs, presenting how different stones can be pieced together in jewellery.
The Module-End display occurred under the mentorship of Ms Rupali Sarkar and Ms Adithi MV. The management team; Mr Pramod Adhikari, Ms Suma Satish, and Dr Anusuya K were also present wherein they interacted with the students and gave their valuable feedback. Moreover, students of various departments also visited the display to get a closer look at the creativity of the designers.
