The Durban University of Technology’s Jewellery Department had our end of year Jewellery exhibition Diploma show on Tuesday night. I thought it was a very successful display of some of the talent in our midst. A congratulations to all the graduating third years! There’s definately some talented jewellers breaking into the scene! Another congratulations to the graduating B-Tech students! They set a high standard for us next year with some wonderful displays. Here are the three graduants’ displays and some of their work, which I have no doubt will start becoming familiar in the industry!
