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.
