During this course
What is "jewelry"? Why are we attracted to it? Every civilization - every era - has provided its own answers. 
From Africa and Asia to Oceania, the Americas and Europe, this world tour invites you to discover the materials, know-how, and styles that have shaped jewelry, in both the past and present.
