We had a great day trip down to Dublin yesterday to see the NCAD graduate show. Below are some snapshots of the work, really stunning and diverse ranges. Congratulations to all the students!
We were particularly interested in seeing Jaki Coffey‘s MFA ‘Lust at Sea’ collection. We had the pleasure of exhibiting her amazing, curate your own skip (‘Lust in Found’) graduate work last year as part of our ‘Chain Reaction Exhibition‘ so her iconic yellow designs immediately caught our attention.

NCAD metals & Jewellery Graduate show runs from 13th to 21st June, 2015 then you can catch them at New Designers 2015 in London! (Stand JC18, Part 1).
The last ever Orpheus Jewellery & Silversmithing Graduates.
Sadly, despite the #SaveTheOrpheus Campaign the lovely 1932 building by Samuel Stevenson will be demolished soon. This made for quite a nostalgic visit to the degree show this year. It is truly a pity that yet another historic building will be destroyed in Belfast despite much public objection. We wish this years graduates all the best in their new adventures and best of luck to the current jewellery department with their big move.
Below is a little insight into Jewellery and Silversmithing graduates. A very varied range of materials and influences were represented with a mixture of object based work, conceptual jewellery as well as wearable pieces.
