Founded with the support of the Maison Van Cleef & Arpels, L’ÉCOLE of jewelry arts celebrates its 5th anniversary all during 2017, with special programs to note the growing success of the school. Guest Artists’ Exhibitions, new courses and workshops, new partnerships with the great museums, new destinations for L’ÉCOLE abroad ... to discover or rediscover the first school which invites the general public to learn about the Jewelry Arts.
Harumi Klossowska de Rola presents her new collection of jewels and objects, from January 23 to February 1, at L'École des Arts Joailliers, in an exhibition named "Retour d'expédition".
Harumi Klossowska's jewels are animals which are at the same time alive and petrified, mysterious an familiar. A world in which creatures spring into existence, out of wood and gold, dreamed up between Europe and Japan, tamed by the artist's mind, and then entrusted to the meticulousness of several Swiss French artisans. These works are unique, wild and delicate.

This class is conducted by a Japanese lacquer instructor and a jeweler with many years’ experience in Van Cleef & Arpels’ workshops, along with an instructor.
