Wen-Ju Tseng’s says her winning graduate collection ‘Taking Shape’ ‘Subverts the uses of everyday objects to challenge how societal expectations commodify everything we do with unrealistic values’.

Tseng’s approach to her jewellery is in a fine art context, to create work that uses everyday objects but in a completely different context. The jewellery uses our strong bond with the familiarity of everyday objects but then subverts their original function.

Theo has long taken a huge interest in Central St Martins and works with the university to develop and encourage their young jewellery and silverware talent as part of Guilded Youth, our own initiative, which not only gives a voice to, but supports and nurtures the master jewellers of the future.

‘Tseng not only showed a really interesting and eminently wearable and buyable set of jewellery but made a bone fide social comment; a rare combination’.
