We’re thrilled to announce that recent graduate Yichen Dong has won the Matranovak Jewelry Symposium participation award, at this years’ Art Jewelry Night in Budapest. “I am a Ring” and “I Married an Ear” are powerful stereotypes of generic jewellery forms.

We are delighted to announce Veronika Fabian as the winner of this year’s Marzee Graduate Prize. Veronika has had a very productive summer, she has also won the Main Patron Award of the Art Jewellery Night Budapest. We cannot wait and see what she does next!
This year our design collaboration with Swarovski challenges the students to re-form, re-use, re-work, re t,re-think a number of unsold pieces of jewellery or ornaments provided by Swarovski. ‘The Power of Transformation’ was the brief given to our Year 3 students, they had to think about how they can transform such pieces back into the circular economy. Swarovski recognises that the industry needs to do more for sustainability and is working with Central Saint Martins students to become pioneer in that.

By using springs, rivets and jump-rings, she creates fluent movement so that her jewellery reconstructs the harmonious philosophy that exists between nature and human.
