I'm interested in London Metropolitan University's Jewelry by
project MA and would like to know more about the school and the
I was a student at the John Cass facility of the LMU between 2001
and 2005. I studied both jewellery and silversmithing under the City
& Guilds examination schedule which as you will know was the
standard trade qualification until C&G cancelled the examination as
a result of low take-up at the end of 2005.
So I can’t comment on the MA course but I can tell you that the uni.
has excellent facilities for design using both traditional and CAD
methods, a first class library and well equipped workshops for
silversmithing, jewellery,setting and mounting, engraving,
enamelling, chasing and repousse, and casting.
However you need to check that all of these facilities are still in
use as the withdrawal of the then C&G course did cause a problem
with the arrangement of the separate streams of study.
If you need any further you can contact me off forum.
