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. Defying their original uses, they augment in shape and size, so as to confound our expectations. In the process, they become what they want to be.
Maison/0 is an incubator of sustainable intelligence designed to provoke practices and challenge our collective futures.
Set up as part of the CSM LVMH partnership launched in May 2017, Maison/0 provides a platform to develop innovative sustainable projects across Central Saint Martins and LVMH. Leading the initiative in both local and global contexts, Professor Carole Collet is the inaugural CSM LVMH Director of Sustainable Innovation.
Matilde Mozzanega, our graduate this year at BA Jewellery Design is one of the winners of this exciting prize. Matilde transforms a man-made material into an organic form. In a kind of reversed alchemy that uses resin, her work creates a state-change; the end-product is an entirely new substance. Pitting nature against machine, she hardens paper so that it feels like rock yet looks like driftwood.
We are very proud to announce that Francesca Amfitheatrof an alumna and recent staff member of Central Saint Martins, has been appointed jewellry and watches artistic director at Louis Vuitton.

Modern Life at the Gill Wing Gallery is a new exhibition featuring work by 6 jewellers who investigate the theme Modern Life in their work in unique and interesting ways. The gallery explains: “Modern Life for 2018 is about appreciating what already exists; the imperfect, the mundane. Being thankful for your home, wherever it may be, because you have one. Being thankful rather than guilty for your bad habits because you have the freedom to indulge them. Finding beauty and humour in everyday situations.”
The jewellers featured are Jonathan Boyd, Jo Garner, Corrina Goutos, Akiko Kurihara, Christoph Ziegler and Holly O’Hanlon, one of our recent graduates.
Fixing a moment forever with a golden pin, Holly’s unique jewellery compositions draw attention to the overlooked and mundane details of our surroundings which we often miss on our daily journeys. Her assembled slate and steel layers are textured and marked to evoke the patterns building up from signs and posters being pasted, torn and weather worn. Their messages and information was time sensitive, replaced, faded and disintegrating, but she makes these remaining traces permanent and precious using solid gold staples and hand-enameled silver drawing pins to fasten them in place. “Framing the unseen and relocating it on the body, giving a new mantle to the unseen and unappreciated.”
The exhibition runs from 13th January to the 28th February at Gill Wing Jewellery, 182 Upper Street, Islington, N1 1RQ. For more information visit: http://www.gillwingjewellery.co.uk/blog/2017/12/19/modern-life
