We have an ongoing build-up to the Indra Congress Pathways that introduces the participants and arts facilitators and organisers to each other and also shares the artworks that the participating groups are working on that they will share with each other at the congress.

The DUT Jewellery Design students have been working hard on the creations that they will share with the congress participants at the Indra Congress Pathways.

The Department of Jewellery Design has been in existence since 1978. We are situated in what can be called the ‘heart’ of Durban, Warwick triangle , where our students are exposed to a range of rich cultural influences. The students are from diverse backgrounds and we encourage them to draw on their cultural heritages to contribute to the development of a South African jewellery design identity.

We concentrate on developing the necessary skills required by the jewellery industry, and also focus on a broader range of skills, such as beadwork, ceramics, traditional jewellery skills, CAD/CAM , that would assist with the development of students’ creative abilities. The goal being to develop future designers who can contribute in unique ways, as employees, future designers, employers, trainers and lecturers.


The co-ordinator of the DUT jewellery design exhibition is Dr Marlene de Beer who is a lecturer in the department of Fine Art and Jewellery Design.  She writes: "I was employed as a part-time lecturer in the Department of Jewellery Design at Durban University of Technology from 200-2006.  I have been employed as a permanent lecturer since 2007.  I was awarded a PhD in Visual Arts at Stellenbosch University in December 2017."

We thank the DUT Jewellery Design students and Marlene  in advance for their hard work and for the contribution that they give to ARROWSA Bechet's intercultural exchanges every year with a percentage of their sales. We look forward to viewing the vibrant jewellery at the exhibition and Indra Congress Pathways opening!
