"Very impressed with the concepts and execution of the work presented here. Even more so with some of the presentations themselves. The photos of the work are every bit as innovative as the work itself. Overall, a stunningly well done exhibition."

I am a .... Example: Student, Maker, Educator, etc.
I am Professor for Jewellery Art and Design at the School of Jewellery, Birmingham City University in the UK. Part of my work is to direct the MA Jewellery, Silversmithing & Related Products program. The title of the course is however a very limited and traditional description when one considers the wide variety of products that are within the province of the designer or artist who has knowledge and expertise in the area of personal ornaments, body signification and decorative metal objects. The variety of materials, manufacturing techniques and processes available to practitioners in this field is far larger and of much greater potential than is indicated by the term ‘jewellery and silversmithing’ and has some affinities with industrial design, fashion design, fine art and sculpture and is often informed by intellectual engagements like general philosophy, strategies of conceptualisation and/or critical theory.
