design in the 20th centrury

Contemporary Jewellery Inspired By Design Movements of The 20th Century.

Bauhaus Design 

While designing for my personal range, I really enjoyed researching and learning about the Art Deco and Art Nouveau design movements. I found it fascinating how a design movement can have such a vast effect on different aspects of our lives. From the way our houses are built and decorated, our clothes, jewellery, cars, these different styles influenced the world in major ways.

I think that it would be interesting to re look at these different movements and draw inspiration from them to design and make contemporary, modern pieces of jewellery.
By looking at these various design movements (such as modernism, Bauhaus, pop art, American kitsch etc.) I want to create pieces of jewellery that will celebrate these movements and how vastly they influenced design in the past and how without realising it, how they influence design in our modern day lives.
As part of my Btech I’d also like to look at 3D forms and incorporating colour into jewellery. 

This slide show explains some of the different design movements and their elements.
