VCC jewellery students inspire through public window displays

VCC Jewellery Show 2021

From Saturday, May 29 until Sunday, June 13, Vancouver Community College (VCC) Jewellery Art and Design students will be presenting their annual showcase in a new and innovative location – outdoors.

Typically a champagne-and-canapés affair in VCC’s Downtown campus atrium, last year’s jewellery show was shifted to a virtual event due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

While indoor gatherings are still restricted this spring, VCC’s Jewellery Art and Design students were inspired to utilize the large glass walls of VCC’s Broadway campus building B, displaying their famously creative jewellery vignettes inside the building while inviting the public to view them safely from outside.

Twenty-four displays of student-designed and handcrafted pieces will be featured along the building’s covered walkway, which is accessible from East 7th Ave. and Glen Dr.

“It will be viewed from outside the building, and will be well-lit, so visible anytime of the day or night," explains Karin Jones, VCC Jewellery Art and Design instructor and department leader.

Guests are also invited to follow the VCC Jewellery Facebook page to see photos and share comments.
