Welcome

We are honored to have you become part of our community here at the Jewellery Design Department and we welcome you to join us on our mission towards the achievement of ACDT’s vision. Learn essential core skills in jewellery making, to build confidence and know-how.

Our carefully structured modules made up of lectures, field trips, projects and other activities will introduce you to a range of materials, techniques, processes and skills needed to become a certified Jewellery Designer. 

The Jewellery Design Department offers an artistic and cultural reference point for students who want to study Jewellery Design. A range of basic jewellery-making techniques are taught, among them sawing, filing, soldering, bending, forging, and polishing. Jewellery students learn to drill, file, weld and shape materials, before polishing and setting precious and semi-precious stones in the finished product.

At ACDT, students are encouraged to develop their own style using metal as well as alternative materials and jewels to create rings, earrings, bracelets and more. From design to production, students at ACDT learn every step in the jewellery-making process, both in the classroom and in the workshop.

In order to become a jewellery designer, prospective students can pursue a BA Jewellery Design Technology programme. Apart from the degree course, one can pursue diploma or certificate courses in Jewellery Design.

Aim of the programme

The Jewellery Design Technology programme is designed to contribute to the transformation of the Ghanaian raw material export economy into a manufacturing economy that will export quality finished products for increased foreign exchange. Most importantly, this course is instituted to pave the way for a more profitable use of Ghana’s raw and hopefully, refined gold, through skills and research development in the art of precious jewellery design and fabrication/manufacture.

We therefore seek to:

a. Use this programme to initiate the development of a gold market in Ghana

b. Give the youth an opportunity to give vent to their creative ideas through jewellery design and manufacture as a profession.

c. Develop a group of competent, professional jewellery designers to satisfy the growing needs of Ghana’s citizens as the country moves to the upper echelons of a middle-income country.

d. Serve as a conduit for those who have established careers in other disciplines and who seek to change their professional direction.

e. Serve as a means for those who have been out of touch to enhance their skills by upgrading themselves to acquire current technological tools developed to aid the modern design, manufacturing or production environment.
