What is a jewelry design and how do we look at it? What skills are used and what uses are made of jewelry design? In the context of the exhibition “Designing Jewels”, which will be held at L’ÉCOLE School of Jewelry Arts in Paris from October 14th, 2021 to February 14th, 2022, we offer you the dual perspective of a jewelry designer and a historian to understand the role of the design, which is both fundamental and little-known, in the creation of a jewel.
This online talk will be broadcast live from the “Designing Jewels” exhibition at L’ÉCOLE in Paris.
Conversation given on Thursday, November 18th at 7:00 pm (Paris time), in English
