Jewelry Designer

The Jewelry and Accessories Designer works in team and knows how to interpret social changes, transforming them into innovative products, for what concerns the collective imaginary, materials, and productive processes employed. This professional has a deep knowledge of fashion, arts, and market trends, is able to identify social dynamics and to understand the DNA of the companies he, or she, works for. This figure has a solid technical preparation and knows how to manage both traditional productive processes and the digital and industrial ones, with a great attention for innovative materials. Jewelry Designers gather the accuracy and ethic that characterise jewellery to the levity and temporary nature of fashion. A multidisciplinary preparation helps students to become professional figures that are interesting for different companies looking for innovation.

Beautiful things don’t have to be active, sometimes the beauty comes out quietly and unexpectedly. Ikebana is a flower arrangement technique with the highest aesthetic value that combines humanity and nature, being a perfect representation of silent beauty. This project aims at creating a jewellery collection reminding Ikebana, made of natural materials such as metals and stones. Beauty of Silence is a project realised by Fan Wu, Jewelry Design student at IED Milano.


Vodoo Design is the brand launched by Livia Lazzari, graduated student in Jewelry Design at IED Milano.
During the Three-year course, Livia took part to several contests organised by IED and to special projects with companies (Lorenz, YJF, Tokidoki/Gruppo Fornari, Zoppini). For her Final Project, Livia experimented LED applications to jewels, combining design with technology. The result is amazing: jewels able to interact with body temperature! Currently, she lives and works amongst Rome, Paris, and London, using natural materials that often come from her travels.

The synaesthesia is a sensorial-perceptive phenomenon identifying a contamination of senses. This feature fits particularly well jewellery and fashion in general, because they concern objects that get in contact with the body, being touched and lived by the users. Flaminia Galgano’s collection, graduated student in Jewellery Design at IED Roma, creates a sensorial pathway aimed at stimulating emotions at different levels.

Trapped in a crowd

Trapped in a crowd

Although the city is large, there is a little room for everyone to breathe freely. The whole city is a big cage in which people are confined. This feeling gave the inspiration for the project “Trapped in a crowd”, developed by the Xiner Wang, Jewelry Design student at IED Milano, and realised using concrete and chain as symbols oppression. Contemporary jewellery is more and more getting rid of the excessive emphasis on design and shapes, and is gradually moving towards an emotional dimension. This project aims at raising people’s attention on the unfree condition of urban populations.
