Jewelry & Metalwork - BFA

It is our goal for every student to develop a body of work that reflects a personal vision using metal as the primary material.

The BFA candidate should develop an understanding and competency of the various techniques associated with metalsmithing including fabrication, lost wax casting, raising, forging, stonesetting and numerous forming and surface embellishment processes. Through the course of study, students should gain an appreciation for the history of jewelry and metals from body adornment to the ritualistic and functional object. In completing the BFA exit project, the student should present a professional portfolio that can be used towards application to graduate school or the jewelry/metals profession.
