Aura34 is an exciting new company, created, managed and designed by our level 5 BA (Hons) Jewellery and Silversmithing students.
Each individual has designed and made an exclusive collection of jewellery, drawing from different sources of inspiration, interests and backgrounds. Each range is unique to the designer, and exclusive to Aura34. This enterprise is a unique opportunity for future graduates to showcase and sell their work.
On Tuesday 24th November 2009 Aura34 will be holding their grand launch of "Entwined Collections with a Flair of Personal Reflection". The event is being hosted at The Vaults, one of Birmingham’s chic metropolitan venues.
Thereafter the work will be displayed for sale at several prestigious galleries and other locations throughout Birmingham as follows
- St Pauls Gallery - 25th Nov - 6th Dec
- Museum of the Jewellery Quarter - 25th Nov - 5th Dec
- School of Jewellery - 26th Nov @ 9.30am - 4.30 pm

Zoe Robertson reports “ Aura 34 creates a unique opportunity for our students to showcase their innovative designs as part of a “live” project. This selling project enables our students to experience the many different skills required in launching a business. Each student has played a vital role within the company and roles have ranged from sales and marketing to accounts. As well as establishing their brand, they have had to raise funds and find venues to sell their work over the Christmas period.”
