Overview

Context

The Jewelry Design - IED Milan programme  delivered by Istituto Europeo Di Design (IED)   embraces the complex scenario of contemporary jewelry field by opening a dialogue between two apparently distant realities: an intimate and experimental approach and a company-oriented design, both fundamental for future Jewelry Designers. 

Methodology and structure

 During the study program Students investigate the jewelry world and his various aspects, learning specifics about design, production techniques and materials.  

Special attention is paid to the design methodology, which is declined with specific features according to the brief of each single course: contemporary jewelry, fashion jewelry and fine jewelry. 

The goldsmith practice in the school laboratory is fundamental in the process of research and production. Students explore edges and potentialities of materials as well as techniques of making, which are necessary to understand the feasibility of a jewelry piece. 

Students produce several collections along the three years. They are invited to present their work in international contests and have the chance to be part of workshops led by well-known designers. All the above experiences help them to create their portfolio for the beginning of their professional career.

Graphic design and 3D computer modelling classes cover a relevant role in the study programme. Digital skills are the essential tools to communicate the projects and to take advantage of new technologies, specially in order to be up-to-date with the production methods.
