Exhibition - LOOT: MAD About Jewelry 2012

NYC is the place to be
this week!

From September 11 to September 15, 2012
the Museum of Art and Design
MAD's annual exhibition and sale of
one-of-a-kind contemporary jewelry.
MAD describes the event as,
Each year LOOT celebrates the work of fifty international jewelry artists whose collections we deem inspiring, creative and wearable. You will see inventively modern pieces in gold, sterling silver and semiprecious stones alongside jewelry made of unexpected materials such as titanium, stainless steel, glass, wood, rubber, fabric, and found objects. We’re confident that every single jeweler we discover and invite to LOOT meets our three-fold criteria of excellence in design originality, artistic expressiveness, and outstanding craftsmanship. Most of these artists have never before shown their jewelry in New York and will be at the Museum to meet you and discuss their work.

Over 50 international jewelry artists were chosen
to participate this year, including
Nastassia Aleinikava, Marianne Anderson, Akiko Ban, Maria Cristina Bellucci,
Cécile Bertrand, Luisa Bruni, Amanda Caines, Rachel Carren, Mirta Carroli,
