The jewelry on view at Design Miami/ 2013 represents the long tradition of artists creating wearable works, as well as the innovative directions of contemporary jewelry-making by creators from a range of disciplines.
From prehistoric Egyptian armlets, to the crowns of European royalty, to glittery bling rocked by present day starlets and moguls – artists have been designing jewelry to adorn the human body for time immemorial. Jewelers occupy a special place as both artists and designers in many ways, and there is also a long tradition of visual artists creating works for the purposes of wearing.
For its eighth edition, Design Miami/ Basel returns with an enhanced gallery selection, showing museum-quality works spanning five centuries of design. See the complete list of Design Galleries and Design On/Site Programs as well as some preview shots of the pieces to be shown.
