The Secrets of Jewelry Design
By registration only
Have you ever wondered about the process of creating a piece of jewelry? How is a piece of jewelry born? Marina Fulchiron, a jewelry designer, and Inezita Gay-Eckel, a jewelry historian, will draw on extensive research conducted by L'ÉCOLE, using unpublished drawings and museum collections, such as that of the Musée des Arts Décoratifs in Paris, to understand the creative process, from the first glimmer of inspiration to the final design for a jewelry workshop. Our duo will share with you this research, as well as practical knowledge, in order to unravel the secrets of the genesis of a work of high jewelry.
This online talk will be broadcast live from the “Designing Jewels” exhibition at L’ÉCOLE in Paris.
Marina Fulchiron, Jewelry Designer and Teacher at L’ÉCOLE, School of Jewelry Arts
