Jewellery (Level 6)

Glasgow Kelvin College


Springburn Campus


If you are creative and dedicated and someone who enjoys a challenge then this course is ideal for you. You will develop a range of new metalworking and design skills using both precious materials and gemstones.

The course centres around three main areas:

Design – this area of study will encourage you to explore the fascinating world of Jewellery design considering both the aesthetics of the work but also sympathetic to the techniques and processes used to realise each design.

Manufacture – in our well-equipped and dedicated Jewellery studios, you will experience a structured approach to learning the craft of Jewellery manufacture and you will experience the full range of hand manufacturing techniques available to the modern craftsperson. These techniques include silversmithing, enamelling, engraving and polishing.

Gemstones – a particular specialism of the department is the study and use of precious gemstones and this takes the form of a detailed investigation of gemmology (identification of gemstones) and the practical application of gem setting techniques, so valuable to the modern Jeweller.
