At the heart of the jewelry minor is thinking through making. Jewelry students are passionate about working with their hands. By engaging with material and process they discover the ideas and concepts that underlie their art. Technical instruction is balanced with investigation of meaning and content. Work produced ranges from art jewelry to design-oriented jewelry to experimental/new genres. Students experience personal control of all aspects of making, from initial design to final finished piece.
Students pursuing a BFA in Craft + Material Studies with a Jewelry concentration are not permitted to enroll in this minor.
