The workshop is aimed to deepen understanding to jewelry design through practical works, as well as increase students’ and lecturers’ sense of confidence through their designs that can directly be applied into the production process. Besides, the event also aims to support lecture materials on Product Design Project 1 course, which has the theme of Design and Aesthetics-Ergonomics. Waluyohadi, S.Ds as lecturer of the above course said, “On more than half of the semester, students are required to design jewelry with Surabaya as a theme. We hope their designs can be used as Surabaya merchandises.”

Participants took metaphor images, something that distinctive and unique, such as food, tourism, landscape, monumental buildings, etc. “My pendant necklace design was inspired by the Suro Fish (Shark) & Crocodile sculpture,” said Margaret Chow, a participant who is also the 2009 DMP student.

The event was divided into 2 sessions, the first session on first day was about the theory of jewelry & its production process and the second session was about production practical training. The sessions were delivered by Agus Budiyanto, owner and instructor of Studio 76 House of Silver Art Kotagede, Yogyakarta. By participating on the training, participants are expected to get deeper understanding toward jewelry production process and design. “The event is designed as attractive as possible, so that participants are able to make at least 2 simple silver jewelries, such as rings, pendants, necklaces, and earrings. They can then own and wear the jewelries,” explained Kumara Sadana Putra, S.Ds as PIC of the event. Twice a year, DMP routinely organizes this workshop and training event. The aim is to increase awareness toward the importance of design upon the development of a product. “Overall, as organizing committee, we are satisfied to the enthusiasm of participants and their product designs,” said Ian Anthon as Chairman of the event.
